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 Stewart Mills for the United States House of Representatives in the 8th Congressional District of Minnesota.
Based on his support for and commitment to the Second Amendment, Mills has earned an “AQ” rating from the NRA in the November 4, 2014 election. An “AQ” is reserved for a pro-gun candidate whose rating is based on pro-gun responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and is the highest rating a candidate can receive without a voting record on Second Amendment issues.
“We share a common goal to safeguard the rights of law-abiding Americans who own firearms for hunting, personal, collecting, or any other lawful purpose,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “Stewart Mills will oppose any attempt to ban lawfully owned firearms and magazines and will stand strong against the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda.”
Additionally, Mills has stated his strong opposition to so-called “universal” background check schemes that would criminalize the private transfer of a firearm between life-long friends and many family members. Mills also supports concealed carry reciprocity, which would enable law-abiding Americans to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.
“We can count on Stewart Mills to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in the U.S. House. The NRA encourages all gun owners and sportsmen in Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District to vote Stewart Mills for U.S. Congress on or before November 4,” concluded Cox.
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.
