This is from the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, complete with their boldface. This sounds like a rally, but supposedly isn’t. Still, gun owners seem to be heading for a big gathering somewhere, either the Capitol or LOB. Cabela’s is the big camping and hunting retailer in East Hartford:
“On Monday, March 11, the National Rifle Association, in association with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the Coalition of Connecticut Sportsmen and the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, will host a Lobby Day at the state Capitol in Hartford. Your presence is needed to communicate with your state legislators that you oppose passage of sweeping anti-gun legislation that is riddled with failed policies and infringes on the rights of law-abiding citizens.
This is your opportunity to Stand and Fight with the NRA and make your voice heard to your state lawmakers! If able, please schedule meetings with your state legislators in advance, and spend the day networking with other Second Amendment supporters.
Your active support is needed more than ever! Today, Senate Majority Leader Martin Looney, in coordination with other anti-gun Democrats, hijacked the “Bipartisan Task Force on Gun Violence” by releasing a partisan plan. This partisan plan eerily aligns with Governor Malloy’s recently announced package of disenfranchising proposals and includes a ban on standard capacity magazines, a gun rationing scheme and a ban on commonly owned semi-automatic rifles.
We need you to show up in Hartford on Monday to demonstrate your opposition to these proposals! Please come stand shoulder to shoulder with the NRA to fight for our Second Amendment rights!
