NRA-ILA coordinates “Lobby Day” in Hartford this Monday, March 11

The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action is coordinating a Lobby Day in Hartford with local Connecticut groups this coming Monday. I expect this will be a large event, and parking should not be an issue since there will be complementary shuttle transportation available from Cabela’s in East Hartford. Everyone is encouraged to try and make appointments with their state representatives and senators.

Here is the information from the NRA-ILA website, that has been passed around via email for the past day or so. This is a great opportunity to network with other 2nd Amendment supporters and ensure your voice is heard. Remember you can carry on capital grounds, but not within state buildings or Hartford’s parks.

Come to Hartford to Protect your Right to Keep and Bear Arms

On Monday, March 11, the National Rifle Association, in association with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen and the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, will host a Lobby Day at the state Capitol in Hartford. Your presence is needed to communicate with your state legislators that you oppose passage of sweeping anti-gun legislation that is riddled with failed policies and infringes on the rights of law-abiding citizens.

This is your opportunity to Stand and Fight with the NRA and make your voice heard to your state lawmakers! If able, please schedule meetings with your state legislators in advance, and spend the day networking with other Second Amendment supporters.

Your active support is needed more than ever! Today, Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney, in coordination with other anti-gun Democrats, hijacked the “Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence” by releasing a partisan plan. This partisan plan eerily aligns with Governor Malloy’s recently announced package of disenfranchising proposals and includes a ban on standard capacity magazines, a gun rationing scheme and a ban on commonly owned semi-automatic rifles.

We need you to show up in Hartford on Monday to demonstrate your opposition to these proposals! Please come stand shoulder to shoulder with the NRA to fight for our Second Amendment rights!

It is critical that you attend this important Lobby Day to show your support for our Second Amendment rights before it is too late. The NRA is fully invested in this fight to protect our freedoms, so please join us and other Second Amendment supporters on Monday, March 11.

If you are unable to attend the Lobby Day in Hartford, please contact your state Senator and state Representative and urge them to vote against any rights-infringing legislation. Click here to view contact information for your state legislators.

    ? Sure?hope there are 1000’s there. I will be one. Our forfathers gave up a lot for what we have and had. Maybe a few will give up a few hour of time to protect some of what’s left.
