NRA issues Grades for Governor’s Race

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund has endorsed Governor Gianforte

The NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) functions as the NRA’s political action committee, assessing political candidates regardless of their party affiliation based on their voting history, public statements, and their responses to an NRA-PVF questionnaire.

In the gubernatorial race in Montana, the NRA-PVF has endorsed the Republican incumbent Governor Greg Gianforte, while Democrat Ryan Busse received a low F rating from the organization.

The NRA operates on a straightforward principle: when presented with factual information, elected officials across the nation will understand that “gun control” measures violate the Second Amendment and have proven ineffective in reducing crime. This principle underscores the understanding that, as one U.S. Congressman emphasized, “The gun lobby comprises ordinary citizens.”

What do the grades mean?

A+ = A legislator with not only an excellent voting record on all critical NRA issues, but who has also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.
A = Solidly pro-gun candidate. A candidate who has supported NRA positions on key votes in elective office or a candidate with a demonstrated record of support on Second Amendment issues.
AQ = A pro-gun candidate whose rating is based solely on the candidate’s responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and who does not have a voting record on Second Amendment issues.
B = A generally pro-gun candidate. However, a “B” candidate may have opposed some pro-gun reform or supported some restrictive legislation in the past.
C = Not necessarily a passing grade. A candidate with a mixed record or positions on gun related issues, who may oppose some pro-gun positions or support some restrictive legislation.
D = An anti-gun candidate who usually supports restrictive gun control legislation and opposes pro-gun reforms. Regardless of public statements, can usually be counted on to vote wrong on key issues.
F = True enemy of gun owners’ rights. A consistent anti-gun candidate who always opposes gun owners’ rights and/or actively leads anti-gun legislative efforts, or sponsors anti-gun legislation.
?= Refused to answer the NRA-PVF candidate questionnaire or a candidate who has made contradictory statements or taken positions that are inconsistent with the candidate’s answers to the NRA-PVF candidate questionnaire or previous record. A rating of “?” often indicates indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners’ and sportsmen’s rights.
