Fairfax, Va.— On behalf of our six million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed Mike Hunter for Oklahoma attorney general.
Based on his support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Mike Hunter has earned an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF in the June 26 Republican primary election. An “A” rating is reserved for a pro-gun lawmaker who has supported the NRA’s position on issues of importance to gun owners.
“As attorney general, Mike Hunter has fought to protect law-abiding Oklahomans’ constitutional right to self-defense, “ said Chris W. Cox, NRA-PVF chairman. “He knows that self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate, and that’s why every law-abiding citizen should be able to defend themselves without the burden of unnecessary government-mandated time delays and taxes.”
Hunter supports expanding the rights of concealed carry permit holders and has called on Congress to pass national concealed carry reciprocity. This important self-defense legislation would protect the ability of Oklahomans to carry concealed when they travel out of state.
Mike Hunter also 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.
“On behalf of the NRA’s six million members, I urge all NRA members, Second Amendment supporters and sportsmen in Oklahoma to vote Mike Hunter for attorney general.”
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.
