66 Year Old New London City Ordinance Banning Concealed Carry is Being Addressed
Only two cities currently have ordinances banning the concealed carry of weapons. One is New Britain, the other just so happens to be in the city that CCDL President Scott Wilson lives in. After working through public access television to raise the issue, Scott has been able to get the matter into to Public Safety Committee for review. We are hopeful that this will be a specific agenda item for the City Council in the near future. We remind our members that live or travel into New London that permitted carriers of firearms still have the option to Open Carry if they choose to go this route. While some city ordinances are technical nuisances, CCDL takes them seriously when it comes to firearms. We know gun owners make every attempt to comply with the law, and also work to change those laws that infringe on our rights.

Campaign Watch (2012):
At our next meeting we have candidates for US Congress 5th District: Mark Greenberg along with US Congress 2nd District: Dan Reale.
Both candidates will share 2nd Amendment views, as well as talk about the elections next year.  As an activist organization, we feel it is important for our members help out with the campaigns of their favorite 2A candidate.  
Last month, US Senate candidate Brian K Hill joined us and offered a very informative Q&A session. Video from his presentation is available here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKprj348QtQ

If you know of any pro-2A candidates seeking election in 2012, please have them contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to have them included as guest speakers at our general meetings.

Killingly Town Ordinance Watch Update:
Thanks to the efforts of the residents of Killingly and the wisdom of the Town Council, the ordinance proposal to ban firearms from being discharged on private property has been withdrawn. The efforts of CCDL to bring the ordinance proposal to the attention of the media and to present the side of gun owners played a valuable role, which included having one of our members interviewed and profiled by the Norwich Bulletin. Their coverage of this matter was fair and balanced. Our thanks goes out to Gerald Hopkins!
