7:57 Break

8:11 Review of Old Business

8:13 Permit Issue discussion
Number of strange issues around the state.
Hartford breaking basically all of the rules. DPS won't interfere with Hartford because Hartford has a policy. The permitting process in Hartford is taking over 10 months now.
The board has given some suggestions on how to work around the issues being faced around the state.
Florida has a law where if a town ordinance conflicts with state law, the town must remove it from the books or face fines.
Best way to fix the permitting process is to attack suitability
Checking if a candidate is 'suitable' doesn't serve a useful purpose except to put roadblocks in the path of honest citizens

8:43 2A Rally
Original date and location taken @ capital (south side). We can take North side or move to a different date
This requires further discussion
Even will more than likely be on a Saturday.

8:46 New London
Scott attended the monthly Town Council meeting.
Working with Ordinance Keeper to resolve the issue.

8:46 Ideas for actions during the upcoming legislative session
A bill should not be allowed to be brough up in legislature without a name attached.
Something like the Floriday law mentioned earlier
State preemption of local firearms ordinances
Reciprocity with other states
Don't try to enact new laws, amend of repeal existing laws.
Need a round table w/ representatives of both partiesĀ  in the Legislature to discuss bringing state law into compliance with Heller and McDonald decisions.
Castle Doctrine reintroduced to cover both Civil and Criminal actions

8:54 National Right to Carry
CCDL has no official stance on national right to carry.
Whitehouse.gov petition to ask for a comment by Obama administration needs approximately 2500 more signatures before they will respond.

8:56 Candidate Questionairre
Current draft needs some tweaking, but probably a good idea.

8:59 Close of meeting
