We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
The CCDL has created a document explaining the time periods mandated by the Connecticut General Statutes as it relates to the permitting process. Ed Peruta has previously posted on this topic.
You can find the document here.
The document is four pages long and includes...
A while back there was discussion about where in, for example, a grocery store that contains a postal counter could one carry. These locations are called "Contract Postal Units" as they almost exclusively exist on private property and are run by private entities.
Can anyone point to a single weapons policy of any CT university that applies to visitors? All the policies I see are either in the student handbook or the employee handbook. As a visitor, I would be neither.
I didn't see this already posted, so I thought I'd offer it.
For those not aware, Alan Gura (of Heller and McDonald fame) is working on the right to bear arms in D.C. with a new lawsuit. Background on the case is below.
The part I want to bring up is in D.C.'s response to Gura's...
Connecticut is not a stop-and-ID state. You are not required to hand over your identification unless you are operating a motor vehicle. State v. Aloi says that you don't have to produce identification, but you do have to identify yourself if asked.
While state law explicitly...
Here it is, in it's final version!
Someone on another forum suggested carrying 4 or 5 trifolds folded in half again like a clamshell in your back pocket. When distributing, start from the inner most pamphlet...
Jury instructions are given to juries in all criminal cases that describe the requirements of finding someone guilty of a crime. Here's a link to the jury instructions indexed by statute.
Thanks to jumpmaster for pointing me...
I want to make sure I'm reading this right. It appears that under CT state law, it is lawful to carry an unloaded firearm while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.
What say you?
An unloaded open carrier in California protests a gun turn-in event and convinces a reporter to go shooting.
We should try something similar.
This is a draft of a brochure I've been working on for a few weeks now. The draft watermark is there to make sure people know it's only a draft.
The content is complete, but I'm looking for more suggestions for improvements and of course I want people to check it for accuracy...
Can someone point me to a CT statute that describes how one must transport long guns from, say, one residence to another as part of one's belongings.
There are two statutes I've been looking at, but neither really apply.
Sec. 29-38. Weapons in vehicles neither specifically...
McDonald v Chicago is the next landmark court case for the Second Amendment. McDonald v Chicago was filed right after the Heller decision was released and is intended to incorporate the 2nd Amendment against states, counties, and towns.
Today, a date was set for the oral...
The Connecticut Citizens Defense League had their first meeting at Hops in Newington on February 16th, 2009.
I'm convinced using permit fees to increase General Fund is unlawful.
I found a US Supreme Court case from 1937 that involves states burdening interstate commerce (a recognized right) by charging fees. While the Supreme Court had previously decided that charging a fee to defray...
I don't want to highjack the other thread anymore than it already has, so here's a new topic:
I know Brass Mills and Buckland Hills are both posted. I suspect most malls in CT are posted if you look in the right location.
Where I've seen postings:
- Inside the first set of doors...
I've begun working on a document summarizing CT's permit process and related topics. To see the framework I have so far, check out this link:
This document is restricted to the Permit to Carry Pistols and...
After reading Ed's post about appealing the Waterbury PD delay tactics to the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners, I thought a generic form would be helpful to anyone wishing to appeal a long delay in their application.
Fill out the...

For those unaware, the conference is where the mighty Justices decide which cases they will hear for the next session. They will be discussing the incorporation cases on Sept 29th. Since the Court's Term begins...
