Especially if he/she were to attack my dog or something which I know wouldn't retreat to the room with us. I think all lawmakers should be put in the situation first then make a logical decision about how it is "suppose to" go down.
    You need to work with Pro Gun organizations in CT and start in on your people in power to get that changed. Most states have recognized that the breaking and entering of your home is sufficient reason to fear for your life and defend it. Being in New England hurts you, but bordering MA hurts more. Don't let that mentality creep in. CT is starting to act that way, especially after last years attempted high cap mag ban. Who knows whats next? Believe me as a MA native, it will happen fast when it happens. Start fighting now! If your not already a member join the CCDL and see what you can do to help Welcome to the CCDL

    @Bear?? You wrote: "Also told this by state police who forced me to put up a sign about my surveillance camera."

    I am not appropriately familiar with CT law because I live there only part of the year. Now, assuming what your wrote is true, there are a couple of possibilities. 1) The law requires a sign to go with a surveillance camera. That might make sense as something the state would do to protect privacy. Big deal. Signs are cheap.

    2) The state trooper is sending you some sort of message about how he sees your efforts to "protect" your home and yourself. I think he might be trying to keep you out of trouble.

    Maybe he hasn't been clear. Maybe he is just wrong. Maybe he is trying to protect you from yourself. I have no idea what is going on.

    You have two State Troopers located 2-3 miles roughly from where you live with offices near The Bridge.
    You have Officer "M" (you should be able to figure out who I mean), and he sure seems like a fine man to me.

    You should be able to talk man to man with any of them about security issues you may have.

    Perhaps they have misstated the law. Well, if you think that's the case you can go into Middletown and have a quick meeting with criminal defense lawyer; one lives (or used to live) right near Smith RD & MT P. I don't know if he still practices in Middletown. I can look him up and send you his name by private message. There is a general practice lawyer in Chester; good guy. His initials are P. C.

    You have lots of ways to resolve your concerns, while staying fully legal, and informing yourself about the law.

    I stated somewhere else that there is an FFL probably about half a mile from where you are.
    Find that guy and see if he can help you understand the handgun laws. There is another FFL
    out on 151 near Salem. There are several in East Hampton; I had a great chat with one of them
    last year but I don't have his phone number and can't recall his name. These folks probably can help you understand the law too. I know the one in East Hampton helped me out quite a bit.
    There is one out near Salem off 151.

    You have plenty of resources available to you to learn what the truth is about CT firearms, carry licenses, and self-defense law are.

    Bear, you live in what I consider one of the best places in the whole world. I've crashed bikes into "every tree and landed on every rock." And I love every one of them. Stay safe man.

    if your answer is not ( hiding somewhere) here, than it needs to be re-phrased.

    sometimes the lack of a clear answer stems from how it is phrased--or rather, misphrased.

    my friend did not go on the clock with this bit of advice--
    you do what you have to to survive an unwanted encounter;
    than i'll do mine if its necessary.

    simply put; i think he wants me to stay alive and be able to help him make his yacht payments

    I appreciate all the input from everyone. I'm starting to think that maybe what I've been told from local authorities is just their personal interpretations of the laws. Which is usually how it endsup but it definitely nice to hear from all of you and your takes on the situation. To keep it simple and not too personal, I'm sort of what you would call security management for properties and would like to know exactly how to do so lawfully. I think I'll take hopyards' advice and talk to some local defense lawyers just to make sure though.

    Got your private message and sent you a long reply. JAS in Middletown. Mitchell in Bridgeport. Maybe a quick chat with PC in Chester.

    If you haven't burned bridges with the resident state troopers, I'd go talk to them (I think their office is across from Goodspeed in the Town Hall) about your security concerns; I'd also talk to
    that officer M I told you about though I am not sure your place is in his area of concern.

    Shotguns my friend. Save yourself the trouble and bother of CT handgun laws, keep 'em handy, keep em loaded.

    And remember what I told you--- I leave my doors unlocked. They aren't finding bodies in the lake. Not the one near you, not the other big one, and not the one down near where Hopyard hails from.

    In almost 70 years on earth, I've only heard of 1 murder in that town.
