Roy Blunt Earns NRA-PVF Endorsement

Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI -

he National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed Roy Blunt’s re-election bid to the United States Senate and announced he has earned a critical “A” rating for his proven track-record of protecting Missouri gun owners’ rights.

Representing five million members across the country, the NRA-PVF awarded Blunt with an “A” rating, which is reserved for solidly pro-gun candidates who have supported NRA positions on key votes and demonstrate a true support of Second Amendment issues.

“Roy Blunt has a strong record of protecting the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding Missourians,” said NRA-PVF Chairman Chris W. Cox. “He has consistently opposed the extreme gun control agenda of President Obama, Hillary Clinton and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and has stood up against anti-gun nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court.”

“From the vacancy on the Supreme Court to national Democrats and Hillary Clinton vowing to triple down on their anti-gun agenda, this election will have a profound impact on the future of our right to bear arms, an individual right guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” said Blunt. “I’m honored to have earned the unwavering support of the NRA, which represents thousands of Missouri gun owners, as I continue fighting to protect our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”

Blunt believes the right of law-abiding citizens to own firearms is an individual right guaranteed by the Constitution and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. In Congress, Blunt has played a key role in fighting to protect gun owners’ rights, and will continue to oppose any effort - whether from judges, national Democrats, or anti-Second Amendment interest groups - to diminish Americans’ Constitutional right to bear arms.

With an “A” rating, Blunt will continue building off his proven track-record of defending Missouri gun owners’ rights:

·        Opposed the United Nations Gun Ban Treaty, a federal gun registration database, and requiring government approval for guns sales between lifelong friends and family members

·         Voted for the SHIELD Act, which would prevent terrorists from purchasing firearms and enhance law enforcement’s ability to prevent future attacks, while protecting Americans’ Constitutional rights

·         Voted for legislation to reauthorize and improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, incentivize states to submit relevant mental health records to NICS, and require law enforcement to be notified if an individual is either currently being investigated for terrorism and attempts to acquire a firearm, or has been in the past five years

·        Blunt opposes any ban on certain types of ammunition, and recently took action to block a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) proposal that would severely limit access to ammunition primarily used for sporting purposes

·         Introduced the Freedom from Intrusive Regulatory Enforcement of Arbitrary Registration Mandates (FIREARM) Act to prohibit the federal government from requiring Americans to disclose their race or ethnicity in connection with the purchase of a firearm

·         Cosponsored the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act that allows individuals with concealed carry privileges in their home state to exercise those rights in any other state that also has concealed carry laws, while abiding by that state’s concealed carry laws
