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.

We NEED EVERYONE to contact your State Representative and State Senator. The anti-gun movement is out in full force, and their paid lobbyists are working very hard to get these bills called on the house floor.

We need every second amendment supporter to call and ask to speak with their State Rep. and State Senator. Be polite and professional. Leave a message and ask that they call you back.

Find your State Representative and State Senator and then select their name to find their contact information.

Legislators NEED to hear from us. They need to know how their constituents want them to vote, and need to hear your voice. This is an election year, your legislators work for you! Everyone needs to take action to preserve your freedom here in Connecticut.

Ask the legislators to:

Vote NO on H.B. 5540 AN ACT CONCERNING GHOST GUNS

Vote NO on H.B. 5542 AN ACT CONCERNING BUMP STOCKS AND OTHER MEANS OF ENHANCING THE RATE OF FIRE OF A FIREARM

Vote YES on H.B. 5539 AN ACT CONCERNING FIREARMS IN STATE PARKS

A few weeks ago, the Judiciary Committee voted these bills out of the committee and are closer to being called on the House floor. To see how the committee members voted on these bills follow the links:

H.B. 5540 AN ACT CONCERNING GHOST GUNS

H.B. 5542 AN ACT CONCERNING BUMP STOCKS AND OTHER MEANS OF ENHANCING THE RATE OF FIRE OF A FIREARM

H.B. 5539 AN ACT CONCERNING FIREARMS IN STATE PARKS

Time is limited. You need to take action now before it’s too late!
