MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ Expected GOP candidate for governor Tom Foley has taken on stance on gun laws.

In front of hundreds of members of the pro-gun group Connecticut Citizens Defense League last night in Middletown, Greenwich millionaire Foley said if he was elected governor, he would halt any further attempts to create tougher gun laws in Connecticut.

He commented that if he were governor in 2013, the new laws that were created would not have been so easily passed. He also said that if the legislature were to come up with a bill reducing the gun laws now in place, he would sign it.

Foley didn’t speak to any law specifically, but received applause throughout his 12-minute speech.

The CCDL has some 10,000 members and has filed a federal lawsuit looking to overturn the recently passed legislation.
