January 8th, 2013
Monthly Meeting Minutes
 
The meeting began at 7:10 after being moved upstairs due to high turnout. Attendance sheet was passed around by Cheryl Lemos President Scott Wilson led the members in the Pledge of Allegiance.  142 members were present.
 
President Scott Wilson had the E-Board introduce themselves. Announced WFSB 3 may come to the meeting. Addressed the crowd, thanking them for coming and asking that they continue to come. Spoke of the tough legislative session we are about to face and informing members that our backs will be up against the wall trying to keep track of all the anti-gun legislation that will be pouring out all over the state due to the tragedy in Newtown. Also informed members that we will be making a mini presentation of our Legislative Workshop on how to testify. Reminded members to please show up to testify. There will be strength in numbers. Scott then started his official report. See attached.
 
Vice Presidents Report: Had an interview with Bloomberg after he called him personally at his house, which did not make Lenny very happy… Wanted to remind people that if anyone has or knows of a gun-friendly business that would like to be promoted, we offer month-long ads for $50 on our site.
Secretary’s Report:  None
 
Treasurer’s Report:  John Biedler spoke briefly of his interview, letting people know that it was a little scary, however, it MUST be done. The issues at hand affect our future and our rights. For financials, see attached report.
 
Membership Coordinator:  We have been overwhelmed with new members: 309 since the last meeting for a grand total of 2796!
 
Legislative Coordinator/Pistol Permit Issues: Spoke about his interview. Also informed members that Rob Sampson is putting together a presentation of sorts to educate legislators in basic gun knowledge.
 
Technology Coordinator:  Monthly emails were sent. Facebook page was updated. $2281.89 was transferred from PayPal to savings account.
 
Educational Committee:  Greg Hildebrand spoke briefly about the 2nd amendment brochure that they are working on. It will have topics like: ‘Gun Safety’ and ‘What is the 2nd Amendment?’
 
Merchandise Coordinator:  No Report.
 
Open Forum:
 
Judy: Our biggest concern with legislative session should be to educate non-2nd amendment people. Knowledge is power.
 
John from Farmington: Emails and letters are not enough! Please call your representatives.
Danny Brandt: Please sign the petition for strengthening rules already in place rather than add to gun control.
 
Gail from Cheshire: Same page as John. Call legislators. Gave some numbers out.
 
Paul from Farmington: 2nd Amendment side tends to rely solely on facts while the ‘anti’ side is emotional. We need to add our emotions to our facts. It will help them see that we have personal reasons too. We are not just ‘gun-nuts’
 
Rob Chambers: Allowing limitations is not good. It will start with one and go to another and another till there is nothing left to give. United We Stand!
 
Matt from AR15.com: The people on this forum are putting together a document that they would like to forward to CCDL, a sort of manifesto, stating that if you enjoy ANY type of fire arms that we can’t give in any rights! We must all stick together!
 
Tom from NRA: The certain members of the NRA have been receiving tons of threats and therefore had to remove their personal contact information from the site. The emails are still there and you may use that if you need to contact them. As far as testifying, chances are that people opposed to gun rights will try to get in your face to either rile you up or simply because they believe you are wrong. Be prepared. Also, the registration to testify can be lengthy. Don’t get disappointed. We have to make our voices heard.
 
Angel Hernandez: New York is allowing his business to teach people gun knowledge and training. Connecticut said no.
 
Nick from Middletown: There is a chief of police from Pennsylvania that is getting a bill together to promote the 2nd amendment. He has received word from many other state police departments asking if they can join and help get it moving.
 
Paul from Hamden: Wanted to know how to remind people that are anti-gun what causes and starts violence. To point out that it is not the weapon, but the person behind it that is the true issue. The answer was that sometimes you cannot but we must stick to facts and also show them how this issue emotionally affects us.
 
Paul from Woodbridge: Spoke about the town ordinance issue that is ongoing. They are also now trying to prevent zoning allowances for any gun related businesses in the town. Weston is also having the same zoning issues.
 
Chris from Weston: On top of the zoning issues, they are planning to beyond any assault weapons ban that may go thru, and pass regulations on everything that is not covered by the ban, as well as regulations for home storage. Their words were that they want the ‘teeth’ to come out and be able to then inspect said regulated storage for compliance.
 
-End open Forum-
 
Chris Duffy spoke briefly about the upcoming Hunting and Fishing Show in February. Volunteers are all set and we hope to see many of you there. Showing up helps support like-minded business in the area.
 
Rob Sampson is working on promoting Castle Doctrine and trying to make a bill for permits to be more uniform.

Press Release – Publicizing Names of Permit Holders

Groton, CT – January 5th, 2012 – The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (The states largest grass roots gun rights group) is speaking out on state rep Stephen Dargan’s proposal to publicize the names of permit holders that own and carry firearms.

CCDL President Scott Wilson Has this to say: “After contacting Stephen Dargan’s office on New Years day to point out the dire and unintended consequences this proposal would have if passed, we believe that logic and reason will prevail either with representative Dargan himself or with any committee a bill such as this would go before. Essentially public knowledge of who owns or may carry firearms also points out who does not own firearms. A criminal market would be created for two types of criminals, those who like to steal firearms for sale on the streets, and for those that like to commit various crimes against unarmed persons which would be seen as easy and helpless targets. This has to make sense to anyone”.
CCDL members are preparing to stand behind their 2nd amendment rights, by contacting their elected officials, preparing for public hearings. Legislative training workshops hosted by CCDL have been ongoing since before the Newtown tragedy. And will be hosting several more at various locations across the state.
