NRA Endorses Bob Beauprez for Governor in Colorado

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 Bob Beauprez for Governor of Colorado.

Based on his support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Beauprez has earned an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF in the 2014 general election.  An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun candidate who has consistently supported the NRA’s position on votes of importance to gun owners and sportsmen.

“This is a critical election in Colorado for Second Amendment rights,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF.  “Incumbent Governor John Hickenlooper betrayed Colorado voters and values when he chose to support former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control agenda.  The Centennial State deserves a strong leader like Bob Beauprez who will govern on principle and defend freedom.”

Hickenlooper infamously drew national attention and scorn when he flip-flopped on the gun magazine ban, claiming he didn’t have the facts when he signed it into law.  He also was forced to clarify a statement in which he claimed that he had not spoken with Michael Bloomberg prior to signing Bloomberg-backed gun control bills into law – a claim that was proven false by an examination of phone records.  

Beauprez has a proven record of support for our individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  He believes hunting is a valuable tool for wildlife management and an American tradition that teaches young people responsibility and respect for the outdoors.  Beauprez rejects expanded licensing and registration schemes and so-called “universal” background checks, which require federal government approval for transferring firearms between life-long friends and family members.

“We can count on Bob Beauprez to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in Colorado,” added Cox.  “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Bob for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Colorado to vote Bob Beauprez for Governor 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.
