Spread the word:
On April 5, 2014, we’ll be gathering on the North side of the
State Capitol Building at high noon to mark the first anniversary of
the the signing of one of the most unconstitutional gun laws in the
nation. Our keynote speaker will be noted gun rights activist and writer
David Codrea. David has been featured in Guns and Ammo, Handguns, and
Guns Magazine, where he writes the monthly “Rights Watch” column. He is
also the National Gun Rights Examiner for Examiner.com, and writes the
blog “The War on Guns”. He and Mike Vanderboegh (who spoke at our rally
last year) were the ones that originally broke the story of Eric
Holder’s Fast and Furious scandal.
We’ll have other speakers yet to be announced, as well as some
candidates who we are hoping will oust the gun grabbers in November with

Critical information regarding firearms and lawful carry at the Capitol
While the carrying of firearms is permitted on the Capitol grounds,
firearms that are now defined as assault weapons under Public Act 13-3
are prohibited. To avoid confusion and unnecessary hassles, we highly
recommend carrying handguns openly or concealed (if you are properly
permitted – and make sure you have 10 or less rounds in the magazine) in
lieu of long arms. Also, firearms are strictly prohibited in Bushnell
Park, which is right next to the rally. Keep this in mind as you are
walking to and from where you parked. The Capitol police have been
extremely friendly at our past rallies and have never hassled us for any
reason. Lets try to keep it that way.
What’s a rally without signs? Be creative! Keep in mind this is a
family friendly rally. There will be many children there, because this
affects them too. So please consider not using profanity on any signs.
We’re with you on the anger and frustration we all feel, but please keep
Parking close to the Capitol can be tough. If you can, carpool. Even
better get everyone in your gun club to chip in and rent a van or bus.
Chris Fields at King33 Training in Southington has offered his parking
lot as a consolidation point for people who wish to meet up and carpool
in together. This would greatly help with any potential parking issues.
Thank you Chris Fields!!!
