For Immediate Release:
The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (the state's largest grass roots gun rights group) makes a statement on yesterday's Florida shooting.
Comment from CCDL President Scott Wilson:
“While we wait for more facts to come out from the investigation, we know that the person responsible for this mass murder was someone who was a known threat to the safety of students and staff at this school. With this in mind, we wonder if more could have been done to protect this school. We also believe that the behavioral red flags being mentioned in current media reports should have been taken seriously and addressed proactively by those who were aware.”
“While some politicians are calling for more laws that will do nothing, the public should be aware that numerous existing laws were broken in this mass murder, and more laws will not stop a deranged person from killing.”
“In the meantime, our hearts go out to the families of these victims. We continue to oppose violent crime. All violent crime, not just those committed with firearms.”
Scott Wilson Sr.

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!
