This is your opportunity to Stand and Fight with the NRA and make your voice heard to your state lawmakers! If able, please schedule meetings with your state legislators in advance, and spend the day networking with other Second Amendment supporters.
Governor Malloy and anti-gun legislators are aggressively setting the stage to quickly pass sweeping proposals that will severely inhibit your Right to Keep and Bear Arms and inherent right to self-defense. Committee hearings on some these proposals are already scheduled for next week!
We need you to come to Hartford on Monday to express your opposition to these proposals. Please come stand shoulder to shoulder with the NRA to fight for our Second Amendment rights! The NRA is fully invested in this fight to protect our freedoms, so please join us and other Second Amendment supporters on Monday, March 11.
If you are unable to attend Lobby Day in Hartford, please contact your state Senator and state Representative and urge them to vote against any rights-infringing legislation. Click here to view contact information for your state legislators.
