For Immediate Release:
The Connecticut Citizens Defense League along with the following law enforcement groups and other state and local firearms rights groups are amici curiae in a case that will go before the Supreme Court of the United States.
The case in question is stems from transportation restrictions on firearms by their owners. But the very important question that is on the mind of most legal owners of firearms is whether the 2nd Amendment extends outside the home. This is what we hope will finally be settled.
The CCDL Executive Committee thanks all of our hard working members and their financial contributions that helped to make this (as well as other legal participation) possible.
