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

It has been brought to our attention that there are people and businesses offering bootleg CCDL merchandise. While we're thrilled CCDL is now so popular for this to happen, as a 100% FREE nonprofit organization  merchandise sales are our primary source of funds used to keep CCDL alive and fighting for YOUR rights here in Connecticut. These illegal vendors are only looking out for themselves,  essentially stealing money from your organization.

Official CCDL merchandise is sold at all meetings and events we host, as well as some other events around the state. There are also many gun stores that support CCDL and have agreed to sell our decals  with all profits going to CCDL. If you see CCDL merchandise for sale anywhere else, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
