Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association of America Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has given Republican candidate for governor Buz Mills an ‘A’ rating, which is the highest rating bestowed to non-incumbent candidates for office.
The NRA-PVF rates candidates with sole regard to their position on Second Amendment issues and not where candidates or incumbents stand on fiscal or social matters. In rating Mills, NRA-PVF Chairman Chris Cox wrote:
“Your dedication to gun owners is demonstrated through your operation of one of the leading firearms training centers in the country, which every year trains thousands of shooters of all experience levels. As a member of the Board of Directors of the NRA, you work to provide a strong future for the rights of gun owners in Arizona and across America.”
Mills is a lifetime member of the NRA and has been a member of the NRA's 76-member Board of Directors since 2009. At the most recent annual meeting in 2010, Mills was elected to the Executive Committee. Since 2009, Mills has also served on the Board of Trustees of the NRA Foundation which sponsors numerous shooting competitions and raises funds for firearms safety education benefiting youths. Mills operates Gunsite Academy north of Prescott which provides firearms training for the military, law enforcement, and qualified civilians.
Mills has the endorsement of former NRA President and former Arizona Attorney General Bob Corbin. Other endorsements include former Governor Fife Symington, former Coconino County Sheriff Joe Richards, current Yavapai County Sheriff Steve Waugh, and former Yavapai County Sheriff Buck Buchanan.
