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.

Gun control groups are marching on. They are using anti-gun politicians to infringe on our rights. The only way to stop attacks on the 2nd Amendment is to help Pro2A candidates win in 2018. While most gun owners wish to be left alone, the anti-gun crowd will not cease in their efforts.

CCDL members are invited to participate in these FREE workshops and learn how become active in fighting the anti-gun political machine.
You'll learn:

  • Basics of Campaign Strategies
  • Importance of Your Involvement
  • What Gun Control Groups and sympathizers are doing
  • Examples of Effective Victories from Our Side
  • Q&A

2A candidates need our help!

One of the biggest concerns friendly legislators have is who will help them win re-election if they vote against gun control legislation. Gun-grabbing politicians always seen to have people working on their campaigns.

If “we” are going to stop bad gun bills, we need to become more political than we have in the past. While CCDL has a positive track record on some political campaigns, we need more success across the state.
