Gun rights group to rally in Hartford

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League, a group supporting the Second Amendment, will be hosting a gun rights rally at the State Capitol in Hartford, Saturday, April 5, 12-3 p.m.

Limited parking is available at the capitol, with public parking available throughout the area.

"We intend to gather in a peaceful manner and we are as determined as ever to see this law overturned in federal court, or repealed by the state legislature one day,” said Scott Wilson, the president of the group. “We can assure our elected officials that we do not accept this unjust law as a permanent fixture in our lives. Connecticut gun owners appreciate the support from other states that have reached out to us recently.”

Speakers for the event will include several political candidates, Second Amendment supporters, Second Amendment attorneys and others. Representatives from the National Rifle Association will be on hand.
