Since the Connecticut General Assembly convened its 2013 legislative session, anti-gun legislators have been aggressively pursuing arbitrary and unconstitutional legislation that would victimize law-abiding gun owners. However, you have a chance to stand up for freedom and voice your opposition to these misguided anti-gun proposals.
The “Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety” will be holding several important public hearings to discuss school safety, gun violence and mental health. It is important that pro-Second Amendment supporters show up to these hearings to voice their opposition to any reactionary anti-gun legislation. We need our elected officials to understand that restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners is not the appropriate solution to reduce crime.
Please make plans to attend the following public hearings:
School Safety Working Group Public HearingFriday, January 25th, 2013Legislative Office Building9:30 a.m., Room 2C

Full Bi-Partisan Task Force Public HearingWednesday, January 30th, 2013Newtown High School6:00 p.m.
It is crucial that gun owners, sportsmen and supporters of the Second Amendment attend these hearings and firmly voice their opposition to ineffective anti-gun legislation that turns the law-abiding into victims. These public hearings will determine the direction the General Assembly will take with our gun rights. Therefore, it is important that you also contact your state legislators TODAY and tell them to oppose laws that do nothing to stop crime but only penalize the law-abiding.
