    Alert! Police out to outlaw carrying openly!

    Right now it's perfectly legal to wear a holstered pistol in public. It's just not considered neighborly. That means police could consider such an accessory a breach of peace a misdemeanor offense.
    The time is now, state legislators say, to bring some clarity to the law's opacity.
    "Technically, without a concealed carry law, the mere act of walking into a public establishment with your handgun holstered to your side is not breaking any laws," said Lt. Don Wakeman of the Wilton Police Department.

    The article makes it sound like only a few states fail to criminalize openly carried firearms. Please contact any friends or family you have in Ct and ask them to fight this police effort in the legislature.

    Stop DPS and its effort to outlaw your right to bear arms. Would we stand for the police arguing in the legislature that citizens should be able to exercise their freedom of religion only in private, at home, with the shades drawn? What if somebody is offended by a person carrying a Bible? No problem, let's make it a crime to avoid a "breach of the peace!"

    Shut this DPS effort down. Organize now and get to work or lose your right.

    This is not exactly a new issue, they do this every year.

    This year is no different:

    That is here already! Listen to the rhetoric being spewed by the politicians. Do you ever hear freedom of religion? No, they say freedom of WORSHIP. They want it being done behind closed doors.
