Kansas Voters Repudiate Gun Control

Monday, August 12, 2002

Kansas voters overwhelmingly rejected gun control by electing pro-gun, pro-freedom candidates in the Republican primary. National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) endorsed candidates throughout the state, including Tim Shallenburger for Governor and Phill Kline for Attorney General, claimed victory at the polls largely due to their support of gun owners` rights. "Voters sent anti-gun politicians and activists a clear message-- gun control advocates don`t belong in Kansas," said Chris Cox, NRA`s Chief Lobbyist. "This landslide win for pro-gun candidates proves yet again that Kansans, like the majority of Americans, know that more gun control laws aimed at law-abiding citizens will have no effect on violent crime or keeping families safe. "Tim Shallenburger and Phill Kline both understand the importance of preserving our Second Amendment rights for future generation,." Cox added. "We hope this victory will continue to give momentum to Shallenburger, Kline and other freedom-loving candidates in the general election." Even Kansas` most anti-gun House incumbent, Cindy Hermes, met her Waterloo against pro-gun challenger Mike Burgess in the 51st district. Hermes has been one of the most ardent supporters of gun restrictions, while Burgess is one of the strongest Second Amendment defenders in the state. "We want to thank all of the voters who put freedom first and chose strong candidates like Shallenburger, Kline and Burgess to represent them in the general election," concluded Cox. The 131 year-old NRA is the nation`s oldest civil rights group, and advocates enforcement of existing laws to prosecute and punish violent criminals. The NRA is the nation`s leader in teaching gun safety and promotes marksmanship among law enforcement officers nationwide. The Association has over 4 million members across America.
