Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed U.S. Sen. Luther Strange for the Republican U.S. Senate special primary election in Alabama.
Strange’s leadership on Second Amendment issues as a U.S. senator and Alabama attorney general has earned him the highest attainable rating, an “A+” from the NRA-PVF in the Aug. 15 Republican special primary election. An “A+” is reserved for a legislator with not only an excellent voting record on all critical NRA issues, but who has made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.
“Throughout his career, Sen. Strange has shown tremendous leadership in protecting our fundamental right to self-defense,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “As a champion for gun owners in Alabama and across the country, Sen. Strange is the right person to succeed Jeff Sessions as U.S. senator.”
Strange’s support for the Second Amendment includes:
- Consistently opposing all attempts to ban lawfully owned firearms and magazines
- Rejecting the gun control agenda of Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Michael Bloomberg
- Voting to confirm Neil Gorsuch, a pro-Second Amendment justice, to the U.S. Supreme Court
- Voting to strike down an Obama-era regulation that would have stripped Social Security recipients their Second Amendment rights without due process
- Cosponsoring national reciprocity legislation Cosponsoring the Hearing Protection Act
“I urge all NRA members and supporters in Alabama to vote for Sen. Luther Strange in the Aug. 15 special primary election,” concluded Cox. “Our right to keep and bear arms is under assault every day and we need Sen. Strange fighting for us in the U.S. senate.”
