Published

on

The National Association for Gun Rights has been one of the leading no compromise gun lobbies in America since its founding in 2000.

It has positioned itself as a principled alternative to establishment gun lobbies such as the National Rife Association.

One of its principal focuses is to make Constitutional Carry a reality in 50 states.

BLP was able to get in contact with NAGR officials to learn about who they’ve endorsed so far.

They provided the following list of candidates that NAGR PAC has officially endorsed.

U.S. House:

 

  • Rep. Thomas Massie (KY-4)*
  • Kathaleen Wall (TX-22)
  • Marjorie Greene (GA-14)
  • Sandy Smith (NC-1)
  • Rep. Scott Perry (PA-10)*
  • Teddy Daniels (PA-8)
  • Paul Broun (GA-9)

 

U.S. Senate

 

  • Tommy Tuberville (AL)
  • Corky Messner (NH)
  • Kris Kobach (KS)

 

State Level

  • Rep. Jonathon Hill (House District 8 in SC)*

The organization will likely endorse other candidates as election season progresses.

For pro-gun advocates, NAGR PAC’s endorsement is as good as gold.

Individuals who are serious about preserving the right to bear arms, should keep NAGR PAC’s endorsement list in mind and make sure to vote for these candidates if they are running for office in their district or state.  At the very least, hardcore Second Amendment activists should consider making financial contributions to these NAGR PAC-approved candidates’ electoral efforts.

Trump Administration Withdraws Nominee for ATF Director After Evasive Gun Control Answers in Senate

Chuck Canterbury avoided answering questions on gun control.

The Trump administration is withdrawing its nomination for Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, after Chuck Canterbury alienated several Republican Senators during his July confirmation hearing for refusing to give an answer to questions regarding his personal opinion on gun laws.

Canterbury avoided answering several questions from GOP senators during his testimony, claiming he didn’t want to express any opinions that contrasted with the stated policy views of the Fraternal Order of Police. Canterbury is the former President of that organization.

Senators such as Louisiana’s John Kennedy questioned Canterbury’s evasive testimony in July.

I like straight answers, and you are being evasive,” said Kennedy. “You have been nominated to run ATF. I think every member of this panel, both my Democratic friends and Republican friends who have feelings about the Second Amendment, are entitled to know both morally and legally what you believe.

Some firearms enthusiasts have become increasingly skeptical of the agency in recent years, and conservatives have sought additional oversight. High-level ATF leadership have spoken of what they believe to be a conspiracy against their agency, further alienating gun rights supporters.

The Trump administration formally informed the Senate that it was withdrawing Canterbury’s nomination on Tuesday. His ambiguous views towards common gun control proposals had ensured his nomination was stalled, and now pulled.
