CAGV Candidate Grades & Endorsements
Vote for candidates who support common-sense gun laws.
CAGV grades were determined using responses to the CAGV Candidate Questionnaire on Gun Laws sent to all candidates and, if the candidate is an incumbent, a detailed assessment of his or her legislative record including votes in committee and on the floor and whether they have introduced or co-sponsored bills or amendments to strengthen, or weaken, CT gun safety laws. Also considered are one-on-one interviews with the candidates, public statements they have made, testimony, appearances at public events and press conferences and remarks made to gun violence prevention and gun rights advocacy organizations.
Candidates who did not return our Questionnaire and have no publicly available record that reveals where they stand on gun safety laws were not graded and therefore are not listed above.
