NRA Election Re-Cap

The National Rifle Association was highly successful in their support for pro 2nd Amendment legislators up for election/re-election last week. These efforts and the results of a much more pro-2nd Amendment Congress make supporters of the U.S. Constitution sleep much better at night. Consider joining the NRA to add your voice to the millions already supporting the basic Constitutional right of firearms ownership.

Election Re-Cap from the NRA:

Election Day 2010 was a great day for the Second Amendment and National Rifle Association (NRA) members, and positions us well for our future defense, and advancement, of the Second Amendment! The most important fact about Tuesday's elections for gun owners is how many more pro-gun lawmakers we will have in the next legislative session and how many fewer anti-gun lawmakers there will be. Here are some highlights from Tuesday's contests:

U.S. Senate

19 of NRA-Political Victory Fund (PVF) 25 endorsed U.S. Senate candidates won. This marks a pro-gun upgrade of eight Senate seats.

In the 111th Congress, there were 43 A-rated and 34 F-rated Senators. The 112th Congress will contain 50 A-rated (+7) and 33 F-rated Senators (-1).

There will be 12 pro-gun Senate freshmen.

U.S. House

Of the 262 candidates endorsed by the NRA-PVF for the U.S. House, 225 were victorious, for an 85% winning percentage. In every case but one where an NRA-PVF endorsed candidate lost, a pro-gun challenger replaced him.

In the 111th Congress, there were 226 A-rated and 151 F-rated Representatives. The 112th Congress will contain 258 A-rated (+32) and 133 F-rated (-18) Members.

There were pro-gun election upgrades in 27 House districts.

Note: As of today, 9 races remain too close to call.

Gubernatorial & State Legislatures

Of the 21 gubernatorial candidates endorsed by the NRA-PVF, 15 were victorious. (Note: Two races remain too close to call.)

We made major gains in state legislative races, which will position us well in the upcoming legislative sessions next year.

The NRA wants to thank the tens of millions of gun owners who actively volunteered for pro-gun candidates and who Voted Freedom First on November 2nd!

NRA's Right To Hunt And Fish Amendments Adopted In Three States: Voters in Tennessee, Arkansas, and South Carolina made a powerful statement on Tuesday by overwhelmingly voting to include National Rifle Association-backed constitutional amendments to protect America's great, ages-old heritage of hunting and fishing as state constitutional rights.
