NRA Candidate Ratings

The 2012 NRA Candidate Ratings are now online!

NRA Candidate Ratings

The NRA Candidate Ratings are a great tool when it comes to voting.  It is SUPER-EASY to use.  Simply select your state, and you get a printable list of candidates in your area with the candidate's NRA Rating.

Below is the NRA Candidate Rating Key:

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.

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.

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.

A generally pro-gun candidate. However, a "B" candidate may have opposed some pro-gun reform or supported some restrictive legislation in the past.

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.

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.

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, often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners' and sportsmen's rights.

The NRA-PVF is non-partisan in issuing its candidate grades and endorsements. They do not base their decisions on a candidate's party affiliation, but rather on his or her record on Second Amendment issues.

*The NRA is a single issue organization. The only issues on which they  evaluate candidates seeking elected office are gun-related issues.
