Our Mission Statement

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League is a non-partisan, grassroots organization devoted to advocating rights affirmed by the Constitutions of the United States of America and the State of Connecticut. We are especially dedicated to protecting the unalienable right of all citizens to keep and bear arms, for the defense of both self and state, through public enlightenment and legislative action.

We welcome anyone who believes that the defense of our constitutional rights is critical to the longevity of our freedom and to the success of this nation, and in particular that the rights to self defense and to keep and bear the arms to actualize that defense, are fundamental and undeniable.

CCDL Members Testifying and participating in our Events

Today the Connecticut Judiciary Committee met and voted to raise two more gun related bill concepts this legislative session, An Act Concerning Lawfully Carrying Firearms in State Parks and An Act Concerning Lifetime Ammunition Permits.
We do not have the bill numbers or language at this time. The Judiciary Committee just voted to raise the bill concepts and will hold a public hearing soon (date to be determined).
