I am receiving reports that students in your classes are taught a few points that are at issue with the laws of Connecticut and I am hoping to address them with you.
1) Connecticut has a 'concealed carry permit'.
2) It is illegal to carry in a government building.
3) It is illegal to carry in a bar.
1) Connecticut is not a concealed carry state. Our laws have no concealment requirement and do not have language or definitions for concealment. Therefore, the choice of whether or not to conceal a firearm is purely a personal choice. There are lots of people (myself included) who have carried unconcealed all over Connecticut for years as a matter of routine. This is mentioned on your website as well: http://centersportsct.com/html/nra_pistol_course.html
You can learn more about our lack of concealment requirements here: http://ctcarry.com/Permits/Unconcealed
2) It is not necessarily illegal to carry in a 'government' building. It is against Federal law to carry on the property of a Federal building (perfect example being USPS). It is against state law to carry into any building where the legislature meets (Capitol, LOB), and if you are a state worker or contractor for the state, you may not carry on state owned property. There is also a DEP regulation against carry into state parks. Other state property is fine to carry in (DMVs for instance), and there are a lot of those places.
3) It is not at all illegal to carry into a bar (concealed or otherwise). The only law even close to this is carrying while intoxicated and it allows for a BAC of .10 which is higher than our DUI laws.
I hope you will consider working with us to get the correct information out there. We offer lots of resources to help both trainers and permit applicants/holders to get better educated on the laws in Connecticut, including our website: http://ctcarry.com
Most of the information above should be covered under 'Common Questions'. We can also offer free one on one support for any of your staff to help with any questions or issues that they may have.
