Member Update – January 2018

2017 was a growth year for CCDL. Our organization and its 30,000 members were involved in legislative matters at the state and local level, as well as many exciting group events.

This year CCDL has tried to make sure that our members have had every opportunity to participate and help us preserve our 2nd Amendment rights at numerous levels.

CCDL has put together a retrospective look at many of the things we have done as an organization to show how engaged we are.

We hope that if you have not attended a member meeting or one of our other events, that you do so this year. We would love to have you join us and help defend your 2nd Amendment rights in 2018!

Here is a “look back” at 2017 – link
