Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) proudly announces its endorsement of Kevin Stitt for governor in the 2022 Oklahoma Republican Primary.
"Gov. Stitt has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to protecting and preserving the Second Amendment rights of every Oklahoma gun owner," said Jason Ouimet, chairman, NRA-PVF. "That commitment was on full display when Gov. Stitt signed constitutional carry legislation in 2019 — eliminating the requirement that law-abiding citizens seek additional permission to exercise their fundamental right of self-defense.”
An NRA-backed bill, constitutional carry fully recognized the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners to carry a firearm for self-defense without a permit from the state. With his signature, Oklahoma became the 16th state to sanction constitutional carry. In April of 2022, Georgia became the 25th state to pass similar legislation.
Gov. Stitt has earned an "A+" rating for the 2022 primary election. This rating is NRA’s highest grade and reserved for elected officials who vigorously promote and defend the Second Amendment.
“The NRA is proud to endorse Gov. Kevin Stitt and commends his longstanding support of the Second Amendment. We encourage all NRA members, gun owners, hunters and sportsmen to vote Kevin Stitt in the upcoming Republican Primary election,” Ouimet concluded.
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.
