My name is Kyle and this is my 1st post on opencarry.org. I have been reading hundreds of threads on this website for the last month or 2. While I do not have my CT permit yet I have been thinking about it for a year. Finally got my fiance on board and we will take our class together and get the ball rolling.
I would like to thank Scott for sending that letter to the city manager . I have thought about the New London ordinance for awhile. I work in New London, frequent the local businesses, and sail out of New London. With the October stabbing of Matt Chew and other violence I think it is important in New London to have the choice whether to conceal or open carry. The LEO's I have asked about the ordinance did not even know about it or thought maybe it was on the books but unenforceable. I was not aware of open carry 4 months ago when I asked them about it.
It seems most of the OCers on here are not in NL county and would like to here any experiences about anybody OCing around here. I do remeember one member talking about OC at BJ's in waterford and about No Guns Allowed signs in Toys R US.
I have already joined CCDL and hopefully can make it to a meeting at some point. I also hope to email Melissa Olson to oppose the bill proposed regarding "high capacity" magazines.
I have learned a lot in the last month reading all thesse threads from around the country. I am excited to take my class and buy my first firearm. Peace and godspeed.
