NRA Endorses Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate

Fairfax, Va.— On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed Marco Rubio for the office of U.S. Senate in the Florida Republican primary. 

“Marco Rubio is a strong advocate for the rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF. “He has fought to preserve our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage, and stood strong against President Obama, Hillary Clinton and former New York City billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s extreme gun-control agenda." 

Rubio has earned the highest attainable “A+” rating from the NRA. That rating is reserved for legislators who have excellent voting records on Second Amendment issues and who have vigorously fought to promote and defend the right to keep and bear arms. 

Among Rubio’s noteworthy accomplishments:

  • Opposes the Obama administration’s efforts to ban firearms, ammunition and magazines, as well as efforts to create a so-called “universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of firearms. 
  • Sponsored legislation to stop the Obama administration from executing an abusive practice – known as “Operation Choke Point” – in which the Department of Justice intimidates banks into refusing or severing financial services to legally operated ammunition and firearms dealers. 
  • Introduced legislation to restore the fundamental individual right of D.C. residents to keep and bear arms. Opposes anti-gun Supreme Court nominees. Voted in favor of Concealed Carry Reciprocity legislation. 
  • Opposes anti-gun Supreme Court nominees. Voted in favor of Concealed Carry Reciprocity legislation.


"On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Marco for his support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Florida to vote Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate in the Republican primary on Aug. 30, “ 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.
