Subject: The carry of pistols and revolvers in the state of Connecticut
Attorney General Blumenthal,
By way of introduction, I own Learn 2 Shoot, LLC. - a company that conducts National Rifle Association (NRA) courses in Connecticut. I am an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor and teach the NRA Basic Pistol, NRA Basic Rifle, NRA Basic Shotgun and NRA Basic Muzzle Loading Rifle courses. I am also a holder of a CT Permit to Carry a Pistol or Revolver (“CT Permit Holder”).
As part of the NRA Basic Pistol course, I cover the basics of state and federal firearms laws. There is one question keeps coming up in my courses regarding Connecticut law/statutes.
That question is:
Is a holder of a “CT Permit Holder” withinhis rights to carry a pistol or revolver in public openly (withoutbeing concealed) in the state of CT?
If a “CT Permit Holder” is not within his rights to do this, would you be so kind as to cite the specific statute thatprohibits from doing so?
Thank you for your time and attention to this request.
