One other thing. All of you referencing CCW or CCP. Please stop. Words have meaning. CT is an OC state. It may seem subtle, but it conveys the need to conceal when there is none. CT still has very free carry allowances and people should feel free to exercise them to the fullest extent. Go to my original outdated post. Everything that relates to where and how you can carry is still true. Everything that relates to the BFPE and the fact that it CT is a de-facto shall-issue state is also still true. No need to felate your CLEO to get a pistol permit. The license is called a pistol permit in CT, even by cops. The legal name is a Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers.
