"This is the NRA calling with an urgent legislative alert. Your state senator Art Linares will play a key role in determining the Connecticut general assembly will pass legislation restricting your gun rights.
This week, despite an outcry of public opposition, anti-gun legislatures are aggressively pursuing numerous proposals that are designed to disarm and punish law abiding gun owners and sportsman. These bills would ban commonly owned firearms, impose a gun rationing scheme and mandate gun registration. It is critical that you contact your senator and respectfully urge him to oppose any legislation that tramples on your Second Amendment rights and inhibits your inherent right to self defense. Thank you."
