Senator Roberts’ life long support of gun rights and the 2 nd Amendment were recognized yesterday as the National Rifle Association formally endorsed Roberts in the general election for U.S. Senate.
The key endorsement comes mere days after Senator Roberts’ so-called “independent” opponent, Greg Orman, announced his support for more federal restrictions to our 2 nd Amendment rights, earning condemnation from Kansas gun rights groups.
In the endorsement letter, Chris Cox, Chairman of the NRA-Political Victory Fund, wrote:
"On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse your candidacy for the U.S. Senate in Kansas.
Based on your support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, you have earned an “A” rating from NRA-PVF in the November 4, 2014, election. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun legislator who has supported NRA positions on key votes.
Throughout your career, you have consistently opposed all attempts to ban lawfully owned firearms and magazines, and have stood strong against President Obama and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control agenda…"
Kansas deserves a Senator with conviction and a backbone, who will let you know where they stand. Senator Roberts will always fight for our Second Amendment rights and against the Obama-Reid agenda.
