Gun Group Files Emergency Motion Against Lamont In Federal Court (Article)
The Connecticut Citizens Defense League has filed an emergency motion in Federal Court seeking an immediate status conference in its lawsuit against Gov. Ned Lamont and Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection Commissioner James Rovella.
The Southbury-based gun advocacy group first filed their suit two months into the pandemic. State law requires that local law enforcement obtain a record of the fingerprints of a resident before granting a permit to purchase a firearm or ammunition. CCDL accused the state of interfering with that process.
