Gun Owners' Rights To Be Strengthened In Next Congress!

Election Day 2010 was a great day for the Second Amendment and NRA members, and positions us well for our future defense, and advancement, of the Second Amendment!  The most important fact about Tuesday's elections for gun owners is how many more pro-gun lawmakers we will have in the next legislative session and how many fewer anti-gun lawmakers there will be.  Here are some highlights from Tuesday's contests:

U.S. Senate

  • 19 of NRA-PVF's 25 endorsed U.S. Senate candidates won. This marks a pro-gun upgrade of eight Senate seats. 
  • In the 111th Congress, there were 43 A-rated and 34 F-rated Senators.  The 112th  Congress will contain 50 A-rated (+7) and 33 F-rated Senators (-1). 
  • There will be 12 pro-gun Senate freshmen.

U.S. House

  • Of the 282 candidates endorsed by the NRA-PVF for the U.S. House, 227 were victorious, for an 80% winning percentage.  In every case but one where an NRA-PVF endorsed candidate lost, a pro-gun challenger replaced him. 
  • In the 111th Congress, there were 226 A-rated and 151 F-rated Representatives.  The 112th  Congress will contain 262 A-rated (+32) and 133 F-rated (-18) Members. 
  • There were pro-gun election upgrades in 27 House districts.

Note:  As of today, 9 races remain too close to call.

Gubernatorial & State Legislatures

  • Of the 21 gubernatorial candidates endorsed by the NRA-PVF, 15 were victorious.  (Note:  Two races remain too close to call.)
  • We made major gains in state legislative races, which will position us well in the upcoming legislative sessions next year.

We want to thank the tens of millions of gun owners who actively volunteered for pro-gun candidates and who Voted Freedom First on November 2nd!
