National Rifle Association Endorses Griffin in Lt. Governor Race

Griffin says, ‘The Bill of Rights is not a pick-and-choose cafeteria plan… I will continue fighting to protect and preserve our 2nd Amendment rights.’

 

LITTLE ROCK – Lt. Governor Tim Griffin has received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA), the nation’s largest Second Amendment organization, in his race for re-election. Griffin, a Republican, earned an “A” rating from the NRA for his pro-Second Amendment record. Upon receiving the endorsement, Griffin released the following statement:

“I am proud to have earned the endorsement of the National Rifle Association. I oppose proposals restricting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and believe that tried-and-failed, anti-Second Amendment policies are counterproductive. The Bill of Rights is not a pick-and-choose cafeteria plan: Arkansans can rest assured that I will continue fighting to protect and preserve our 2nd Amendment rights.”

Chris Cox, Chairman of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, said, “I have seen firsthand your commitment and dedication to our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage. You have consistently stood up for the fundamental self-defense rights of law-abiding gun owners…. Congratulations on your ‘A’ rating and endorsement, and thank you for your consistent support of our Second Amendment rights.”
