CCDL Endorses Chris Coutu For State Senate

CCDL Proudly Endorses Chris Coutu


Groton, CT (September 27, 2012) – The Connecticut Citizens Defense League (CCDL), the state's largest grassroots second amendment advocacy group, has officially endorsed Chris Coutu in his run for the 19th Senate district of Connecticut. Mr. Coutu hails from Norwich and is currently a seated State Representative in the 47th district, as well as a dedicated Air Force veteran and a former member of the Air national Guard.
CCDL president Scott Wilson is quoted as saying: "Chris is a candidate, and proven leader, who has served the interests of his constituents for the better. Chris has stood by his principles, and has stood up against legislation that would have been harmful to law abiding gun owners, and others as well. The Executive committee of CCDL wholeheartedly supports Chris, and fully endorses his campaign". It is the organization's hope that residents in the 19th district and beyond support Mr. Coutu in any way possible by voting for him and helping find others who might do the same.

About the CCDL: The Connecticut Citizens Defense League was formed in 2009 by a small group of concerned citizens as a non-partisan organization to advocate second amendment rights in the state of Connecticut. Since their founding, the group has grown to over 2,200 members from all walks of life. Thanks to this large support base across the state the CCDL has become a fixture of the capitol, well recognized by all committees that regularly see firearms related bills as well as the state Board of Firearms Permit Examiners. As the go-to organization in the state they are consulted regularly by lawmakers who have questions and concerns about pending legislation or existing laws. In the time since their founding not a single anti-gun bill has made it through the House or the Senate, and many of their own bills have been introduced and passed.

It's admirable that Coutu stands up for the 2nd amendment. But that said, he's a Representative in a State where unemployemnt is not abating, yet he has voted against the budget which cut a lot of spending, the incentive plans to generate private sector jobs, he's voted against spending any money to recruit businesses to the State, and he even voted against the Bi-Partisan Jobs Bills, the only Rep to do so. So at least with Coutu we know our guns are safe, But What the Heck has he done to improve CT's economy? Our Country has come to a complete stand still with the Party of No TeaBags in office and a vote for Coutu will bring this same inaction to our Senate.
