CT Gubernatorial Candidate Reaches Out to Sportsmen
Tom Foley, Republican candidate for governor in Connecticut, fired off a letter this week to sportsmen in the Constitution State promising to “protect the individual’s right to legally purchase, own, carry, and use firearms.” Foley also pledged to not change any existing firearm-related laws in the state. In concluding his outreach letter to sportsmen, Foley noted, “I am the only candidate in this election who will protect both our state’s natural resources, and the rights of our sportsmen and women to enjoy them.”
Here’s the complete letter:
Among the many things that make Connecticut special are its beautiful and diverse natural
resources, and its proud fishing and hunting traditions. I am writing today to ask for your
support in this November’s Gubernatorial election to keep those traditions alive and strong.
I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and an advocate for sportsmen and
sportswomen throughout our state.
As Governor, I will protect the individual’s right to legally purchase, own, carry, and use
firearms. I will seek no changes to our gun laws. Instead, I will control the red-tape and
bureaucracy which can create unnecessary obstacles and discourage those who wish to hunt
and fish. Further, I will support programs that enhance opportunities for our state’s fishermen
and women, such as keeping our streams and lakes full of a variety of fish throughout the
year. Lastly, I will promote the education of hunting and fishing among our children and
families, and work to broaden opportunities for those wishing to enjoy all of Connecticut’s
On Tuesday, November 2nd, voters across Connecticut will head to the polls decide who will
become our state’s next Governor. I am the only candidate in this election who will protect
both our state’s natural resources, and the rights of our sportsmen and women to enjoy them
so I ask you to go to the polls and vote for me this November.
