Fairfax, Va. – On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Steve Daines for United States Senate in Montana.
Based on his leadership on Second Amendment issues, Daines has earned an “A+” rating from the NRA-PVF in the November 4, 2014 election. An “A+” is the highest possible rating and is reserved for legislators with an excellent voting record on critical NRA issues who have also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.
“Steve Daines is one of the most outspoken defenders of our Second Amendment rights,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “When President Obama and Michael Bloomberg tried to pass their gun control agenda, he was on the front lines fighting against it. Like his fellow Montanans, but unlike his opponent in this race, Steve embraces freedom and rejects government infringement of their rights.”
Daines has stood up to the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda, including their so-called “universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of a firearm between life-long friends and many family members. Additionally, he opposes Obama’s anti-gun nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court, such as Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Daines also opposes any treaty by the United Nations or any other global organization that would impose restrictions on American gun owners.
“We can count on Steve Daines to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in the U.S. Senate,” added Cox. “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Steve for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Montana to vote Steve Daines for U.S. Senate on November 4.”
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
