Input received at this public hearing will determine the direction the Connecticut General Assembly will take on our Second Amendment rights this legislative session.

Since the Connecticut General Assembly convened its 2013 legislative session, anti-gun legislators have been aggressively pursuing arbitrary and unconstitutional legislation. By participating in this hearing, either by testifying or simply being there, you will have a chance to stand up for freedom and voice your opposition to these misguided anti-gun proposals.
If you cannot attend this important public hearing, please contact your state legislators TODAY and tell them to oppose reactionary anti-gun legislation this session. We need our elected officials to understand that restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners is not the appropriate solution to reduce crime.
