Washington, DC – -( On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is pleased to endorse Richard Burr for the office of U.S. Senate in the North Carolina Republican primary.

Based on his leadership on Second Amendment issues, Richard Burr has earned an “A+” rating from the NRA-PVF in the 2016 election. An “A+” is the highest possible rating and is reserved for those with an excellent public record on critical NRA issues who have also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.

“On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Richard Burr for U.S. Senate in the North Carolina Republican primary. His leadership and consistent voting record in support of the Second Amendment has earned him an ‘A+’ rating from the NRA. As a North Carolinian and outdoorsman, Richard has always fought to preserve our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage, and has stood strong against President Obama and former New York City billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control agenda.”

“I urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in North Carolina to vote Richard Burr for U.S. Senate in the March 15th Republican primary.”

Richard has a proven record of strongly supporting the individual right to Keep and Bear Arms. He has voted against the Obama/Bloomberg so-called “universal” background check system that could criminalize the private transfer of firearms which, according to the Justice Department, is only enforceable through a federal firearms registry. He also voted for Concealed Carry Reciprocity legislation, which would ensure that law-abiding Americans with the legal right to carry concealed would be able to carry their firearm for self-defense in any other state. Furthermore, he voted against anti-gun nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court. Moreover, Richard believes hunting is a valuable tool for wildlife management, a positive use of natural resources, and an American tradition that teaches young people responsibility and respect for the outdoors.

“We can count on Richard Burr to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in North Carolina,” added Cox.

“On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Richard for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in North Carolina to vote Richard Burr for U.S. Senate in the Republican primary on March 15th.”

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

TEX & WILD BILL: “We would be in a world of hurt without the NRA ..” That is exactly what the NRA wants you to think… There has been other ORGS. around for years that has done as much as NRA and probably a lot more.. Second Amendment ORGS., GOA, and many more, including State Orgs. of many types. ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE NOT LOOKING FOR COMPROMISE, THEY WANT VICTORY!!! The problem is NRA is more of a propaganda organization then actually an “action” type and has gotten very good at it. After a State 2A org. finally got bills moving… Read more »


We would be in a world of hurt without the NRA ! Memberships/donations to the NRA are at historic levels ! If you don’t like the NRA fine,that’s your right !

ole Shoemaker

Tex: where do you get that information from Factual reports that NRA Membership/donations are at a all time high??? Tell me where to find that on NRA website, cuz I cannot find it. until someone shows me exact membership numbers, not just 5.5 million and next week it will be 6.6 trillion or some crap… it is just more NRA propaganda… and very disputable…..


NRA is a rotten front that is run by bureaucrats whose only interest is job security, not promoting the 2nd Amendment. Look at the scum NRA pays, like Illinois state lobbyist Todd Vandermyde. When the U.S. Federal Appeals Court in Chicago overturned IL’s concealed weapons law in 2012, it was Vandermyde who put Duty to Inform in Rep. Brandon Phelps HB183 “NRA backed” carry bill, NOT Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Great work! Vandermyde worked as lobbyist for William Dugan at the Intl. Union of Operating Engineers local 150 in Countryside, IL. Dugan was convicted by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald in… Read more »

Absent the NRA our guns would have been banned long ago. The gun grabbers and anti hunters would be talking about us not needing archery and knives. And times have changed, it is no longer enough to be a member of the NRA. Now we all need to be stalwart members of CCRKBA, GOA, JFPFO, and be locally active in exposing and rooting out dishonest politicians. Let the current revolution against the party elitists and ruling families continue.


I’m a long time Life Member of the NRA (and a member of the GOA too) but I also take the NRA’s endorsements with a grain of salt. They still continue to endorse Joe Strauss (the incumbent Speaker of the TX House) despite his consistent record of killing pro-gun bills by preventing them from ever going up for a House vote, over many years. He, personally, is the reason TX did not have an open carry law at least half a dozen years ago, and he also supported banning CCW on any state college campus, opposed and delayed the original… Read more »

NC (No Compromise)

This kind of thing is why I dropped my NRA membership years ago, and have stuck with GOA ever since, as they do not compromise and/or “go along to get along”…and yes, I will not be compromising and will vote for Brannon this month.

I am a GRNC member as well, and was a little surprised that they conceded to Burr even though Brannon was rated higher…this was a rare compromise for them, but I still give them the benefit of the doubt.

GRNC endorses Greg Brannon over Burr, but acknowledges that Brannon probably won’t win in November. So I’m voting for Brannon in the primary, then we’ll see.


After Gillibrand, Harry Reid and the many other jokers that the NRA has “graded”, endorsed and fobbed on us, I can no longer trust their evaluations. Like Congress, it’s time to clean the deadwood out of the NRA forest. I’m not saying Burr is not a good one. I’m saying NRA grades can’t be trusted.
