... gun
owners
can be the
grassroots
force that
protects our
freedoms.

As mentioned earlier, a number
of races are still awaiting the results
of primary elections, and we will
update you on those in the coming
weeks. In the majority of these races,
there will be a clear choice between
a strong pro-gun candidate and a
demonstrated opponent of our rights.
Just as in past elections, gun
owners can be the grassroots force

PENNSYLVANIA:

NEBRASKA:

REP. LOU BARLETTA

SEN. DEB FISCHER

This November, Pennsylvania gun
owners will have a clear choice between
anti-gun incumbent Sen. Bob Casey (D)
and Rep. Lou Barletta (R).
During his career in the Senate,
Casey voted to ban commonly owned
semi-automatic firearms and
standard-capacity magazines. He
supports further restrictions on lawful
firearm transfers as well as raising the age to purchase certain
firearms to 21 from 18. He also voted for anti-gun Supreme Court
Justices Sotomayor and Kagan-and against Gorsuch.
In contrast, Barletta voted for national reciprocity legislation,
voted to end Obama's anti-gun Operation Choke Point and
co-sponsored legislation to remove antiquated and unnecessary
restrictions on interstate firearm businesses. He is a strong
supporter of our right to keep and bear arms. Pennsylvania gun
owners have a clear choice in this Senate race.

In Nebraska, Sen. Deb Fischer (R)
faces challenger Jane Raybould
(D). Raybould, a Lincoln city
councilwoman, has stated her
support for renewing the 1994
federal ban on commonly owned
semi-automatic firearms.
Fischer, on the other hand,
has long demonstrated her
support for the Second Amendment. While serving in the
Nebraska state Senate, Fischer earned an "A+" from the
NRA-PVF. Her support for our right to keep and bear arms
has not wavered since being elected to the U.S. Senate
in 2012. She has voted against banning commonly
owned semi-automatic firearms and standard-capacity
magazines and signed a letter opposing the anti-gun
U.N. Arms Trade Treaty. Her re-election to the U.S. Senate
is critical to defending and expanding our firearm freedom.

TEXAS:

NEVADA:

SEN. TED CRUZ

SEN. DEAN HELLER

Texas is another state that could decide
the fate of the pro-gun majority in the
Senate. Sen. Ted Cruz (R) has earned
his "A+" rating by being a champion
for gun owners, while his opponent,
Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D), has earned an
"F" rating for opposing our rights.
O'Rourke supports banning guns and
magazines, imposing new restrictions on
lawful firearm transfers and voted against national reciprocity. He
has been a vocal critic of the NRA and our members. He would be a
consistent vote against our constitutional freedoms.
In contrast, Cruz has a proven record of supporting the rights
of law-abiding gun owners. He has sponsored NRA-supported
national reciprocity legislation, worked to fix problems with the
National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS)
and sponsored legislation that sought to end the Obama
administration's anti-gun Operation Choke Point.
Cruz's seat is one that anti-gun extremists would love to
win. We can expect millions of dollars from those opposed to
the Second Amendment to flow into the state. It is critical
that pro-gun Texans work to ensure that Cruz is re-elected to
continue his strong defense of our rights.

September 2018

In Nevada, Sen. Dean Heller
(R) is a staunch defender of our
right to keep and bear arms,
which has earned him an "A"
rating from the NRA-PVF. His
opponent, Rep. Jacky Rosen
(D), has earned an "F" rating.
Rosen has made her
opposition to the rights of
law-abiding gun owners a key plank of her campaign,
supporting a ban on commonly owned semi-automatic
firearms and standard-capacity magazines and
expanding restrictions on lawful firearm transfers. She
has voted against legislation that would create national
reciprocity for Right-to-Carry permits, showing her
contempt for the right to self-defense.
Heller, on the other hand, opposes gun bans and
supports the right to self-defense. He stood with the
NRA in support of Gorsuch's confirmation to the
U.S. Supreme Court.
Nevada is a key swing state. If gun owners hope to
keep a pro-gun majority in the U.S. Senate, it is critical
to re-elect Heller.
