Input Wanted on Right to Carry Laws in State Forests

A message from CCDL: 
Governor Malloy is asking for a wide variety of input from the public on current regulations that affect Connecticut citizens in numerous ways.
It is currently a violation of state regulations to carry a firearm for personal protection in state parks and state forests. Pistol Permit holders go through training, background checks and pay a lot of money to obtain these permits. Since the Governor is asking for change recommendations, please take this opportunity by using the instructions below.
.The CCDL recommends that those in favor of 2nd Amendment rights do the following:
  • Fill out your NameEmail Address and Town.
  • field Regulations Agency drop-down, Select "Energy and Environmental Protection, Dept of"
  • field Regulation Subject Matter: enter Carrying handguns in State Forests and Parks
  • field Regulation Section Number: Enter 23-4-1(c) and 26-66-2
  • In the Comments enter the following text:
Please modify the State Agencies Regulations to allow individuals with valid Permits to Carry Pistols and Revolvers to carry a handgun for self defense while in CT State Parks and Forests. Specifically:

- Remove the prohibition on the 'carrying of firearms' in Section 23-4-1(c) of the Connecticut Agencies Regulations
- Add an exemption to 26-66-2 to allow the carrying of pistols and revolvers (including handguns using center-fire ammunition) for the purposes of self defense.
