Second Amendment advocates stay involved

HARTFORD, Conn. – They may not have been able to stop the Democrat-controlled General Assembly and governor from implementing stricter gun control laws in 2013, but Second Amendment advocates are staying involved in the political process.

The Connecticut Citizens Defense League encouraged its members to get involved with the political process so they can support candidates that share their view of the Second Amendment. Part of that process included an effort to get their members into mix of 1,253 delegates to the Republican convention this weekend.

The group is focused mostly on the governor’s race. There will be five candidates vying for the Republican nomination for governor Saturday, but there are only two candidates that Second Amendment supporters are looking at: Tom Foley and Joe Visconti.

Scott Wilson, president of the CCDL, said the organization has been expressing the sentiment that they’re not in favor of Sen. Minority Leader John McKinney or Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton. McKinney, who represents Newtown where the school shooting occurred, voted in favor of the stricter gun regulations and until recently Boughton was a member of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
