National Rifle Association Endorses Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate

Flake commended for defense of 2nd Amendment Rights

PHOENIX -- The National Rifle Association today endorsed Jeff Flake in the general election for United States Senate over Democrat Richard Carmona.

At an announcement at the Scottsdale Gun Club, NRA CEO and Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, speaking on behalf of the NRA's Political Victory Fund, said:

"Jeff Flake is committed to protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms guaranteed to all Americans. Because of his strong dedication and voting record, he has earned an "A" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF."

"Growing up in rural Arizona, I appreciate firearm ownership and the need to protect Second Amendment rights," said Jeff Flake. "As America's foremost defender of the Second Amendment, I appreciate the NRA's support."

The NRA endorsed Jeff Flake in the Republican primary election and urged its members, gun owners, and sportsmen in Arizona to support Jeff. They did, and Flake won the primary with 70 percent of the total vote.

In Congress, Flake has a solid and consistent record of support for Second Amendment rights and responsible pro-gun legislation, earning an "A" rating from the NRA-PVF. It's a record that he will continue in the Senate.

Jeff Flake sponsored H.R. 3440, the "Recreational Shooting Protection Act," to prevent a ban on recreational shooting on Bureau of Land Management lands nationwide. His bill was included in a legislative package, H.R. 4089, the "Sportsmen's Heritage Act of 2012," that favorably passed the House of Representatives 274-146.
