HARTFORD, Conn. – Calling their options “downright horrible,” opportunistic, or “absolutely delusional,” the gun rights group Connecticut Carry said Tuesday it will not be endorsing a candidate in this year’s gubernatorial election.

Gun control has played a significant role in this year’s campaign as a result of strict firearm regulations passed during the first term of Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy. The bill was approved in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

By not backing a candidate, Connecticut Carry is at odds with the Connecticut Citizens Defense League, a similar group, which last week endorsed Republican Tom Foley. The group picked Foley, who narrowly lost to Malloy in 2010, over Joe Visconti, a petitioning conservative candidate who has made gun rights central to his campaign.

Connecticut Carry has maintained that none of the candidates deserve an endorsement.
