Gun enthusiasts fall short in opposition to Grogins in 125-18 House vote

Those western Connecticut House members who voted against Auden Grogins’s for Superior Court included Rep. Cecilia Buck-Taylor, of New Milford,  and freshmen representatives Ben McGorty of Shelton and Pam Staneski of Orange. Fifteen of the 18 votes against Grogins in the House won endorsements from the gun-slinging Connecticut Citizens Defense League before the November elections, including Staneski and Buck-Taylor. None of the opponents uttered a word during the brief House debate.
