2017 was a growth year for CCDL. Our organization and its 30,000 members were involved in legislative matters at the state and local level, as well as many exciting group events.

This year CCDL has tried to make sure that our members have had every opportunity to participate and help us preserve our 2nd Amendment rights at numerous levels.

CCDL has put together a retrospective look at many of the things we have done as an organization to show how engaged we are.

We hope that if you have not attended a member meeting or one of our other events, that you do so this year. We would love to have you join us and help defend your 2nd Amendment rights in 2018!

20:00 Motion to take a 10 minute break Virginia/Lenny

 

Ed Peruta discussed his investigation of the statutes regarding permits versus eligibility certificates and believes (as does his friend Chief Cetran) that this “loophole” may be able to afford permit seekers to get the fingerprint/background done by the DPS instead of locals and the onus of the background check would be on DPS not the local police and all they need to do is cough up the town permit which is then turned into the state permit.

20:51 Hostile board can’t be controlled by membership
