Judge's Ruling

The ruling issued by Judge Covello has favored the State of Connecticut. Our arguments were dismissed, and the judge accepted the States argument in the entirety. Read Decision and Order

Everyone would like to know what this means for CCDL and the other plaintiffs. Here is what we know as of now:

1) We are far from done! We knew that there would be appeals no matter how this ruling was decided, and we were prepared for this.
2) Judge Covello did acknowledge that the list of firearms that are deemed as assault weapons are very much in common use, but public safety outweighs a definitive right to such arms.
3) The legal team for CCDL and the other plaintiffs have already filed a 'Notice of Appeal' with the Federal Court System. Read Notice of Appeal here. Filing the appeal may take one to two weeks.
4) We are asking our members to be patient throughout this process. This will be a long fight, but it is a fight that we will not turn our backs on. The very foundation of the 2nd Amendment is at stake. Please contribute to the litigation fund.

It was clear from the start that this would need to get to a higher level to be resolved and I think we are on the road to the next step.

I figured that this would happen. One bump in a long road.
