NRA Endorses Ron DeSantis for Governor of Florida

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to announce its endorsement of Ron DeSantis for governor in the 2018 Florida general election.

“At a time when the Second Amendment is under attack like never before, Ron DeSantis has stood strong in protection of our freedoms and been a steadfast supporter of law-abiding gun owners,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF.

“DeSantis voted for the strongest self-defense bill ever to come before Congress, supported pro-sportsman legislation, and worked to protect the constitutional rights of our veterans.”

DeSantis has earned an “A” rating from the NRA. This grade is reserved for candidates with an excellent voting record on critical Second Amendment issues. During his time in Congress, DeSantis voted for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which would ensure that the nearly 20 million law-abiding Americans who can carry a concealed firearm in their home state are able to carry across state lines. In addition, DeSantis voted for the SHARE Act, which would protect the rights of hunters and sportsmen. And he supported legislation to protect both veterans and Social Security beneficiaries from losing their Second Amendment rights.

“Ron DeSantis is the only candidate in this race who will fight to protect the constitutional rights of all law-abiding citizens. The NRA encourages all Floridians to vote Ron DeSantis for governor on Nov. 6,” Cox concluded.

i wouldn’t vote for anyone endorsed by the nra. the nra pays congressmen millions of dollars to have those congressmen side with nra, and not critically think outside the box to step up gun regulations. some people can be bought by the nra. we need to VOTE BLUE and cripple the nra. by the way, NO ONE WANTS TO TAKE AWAY YOUR GUNS OR YOUR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS.there is no danger to the second amendment, the nra just like 45, wants to spread lies and fears among the american people. america has the most deaths by guns in the… Read more »

“oh and hey there has still not been a member of the NRA involved in any mass murders”

That’s a false statement: Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was an NRA member. He killed 168 people and injured over 680 others. The bombing was the deadliest act of terrorism within the United States prior to the September 11 attacks, and remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in United States history.

Thanks for the correction… I’ve also made that claim, and I appreciate the information.

On one other hand, McVeigh didn’t exactly take a semi-automatic weapon into a gun-free zone and shoot people, either, did he?

Fine. One example. Do you have (m)any more?

I do Guns dont kill people, people kill people. If they cant get a gun they will use a bomb we have seen plenty of that. If people want to kill they will find a way, and quite frankly I have a better chance of surviving a gunshot then being blown up and I can protect myself if I have a gun. It’s common sense. They are lots of ways to kill take Guns away guaranteed bombs are going to blowing up everywhere

Mcveigh was not a member of the NRA in 1995 ,his membership stopped in 94 because he didn’t think the NRA held a tough enough stance on gun rights ,get your facts straight TROLL !

The trash does get in that’s for sure, when I think back to the imbeciles, inside the Republican party, I know this is a party of people with long-term medical conditions that require taxpayers to pay off their medical bills since most don’t know insurance is needed, by the way, what route did you or parent take to come to our America.

The NRA has always advocated for strict background checks and safe gun ownership, the problems lie with your wonderful Democratic leaders, who refuse to enforce the laws that are already on the books.

You are an ignorant Democratic plantation party brainwashed socialists .. There are only 5 million NRA members .. There are 330 million Americans . So , how does the NRA control the House and Senate ? A magic wand ? No , asshole . It is the NRA that protects Americans from Copperheads like you. Anybody else notice that this fool addresses our Constitutionally elected President as only #45 ? Sounds like Mad Maxine Waters and the socialist/communist progressive Democratic plantation party !

Steph… May I gently offer to beg to differ with you? I fancy myself as being pretty good at what you mentioned… “Critical Thinking.” But when folks who encourage tougher gun control laws make their ‘arguments and points,’ I find very little ‘critical thinking’ evidenced in their logic. The areas of the country and world with the toughest gun control ‘laws’ have OBJECTIVELY tended to NOT be lower in gun crime, murders, deaths, etc., from firearms. To the contrary, their death rates have been demonstrably higher. Many of the ‘mass shootings’ were done using weapons purchased legally in- or out-of-state,… Read more »

@stephbeth1, ” wouldn’t it be better to learn how other countries have produced gun control and model our selves on the country with the least deaths by guns?”, you ask. No, it would not.
Our Constitutional Civil Rights are limits on government. When you diminish Rights, you unleash government.

Screw you and your gun regulations!! You see a car wreck and you blame the person responsible. You see a shooting and blame guns and law abiding gun owners and not the idiot responsible for the shooting!!! I thank my lucky stars that there is an NRA to protect my rights with the corrupt, left wing politicians!! YOU JUST MADE A BRAND NEW NRA MEMBER!! NRA, SIGN ME UP!!

VOTE RED or you’ll not only lose your right to bear arms Illegals will be allowed to vote taxes raised,ect. Dems ran this country into the ground DO NOT let them have the wheel again! Anyone voting Blue is desperate so they will say anything to change your mind luckily most of are intelligent enough to see through them. Anyone who lies and destroys a mans life to get what they want cant be trusted ever. We have already seen what they are capable of and that is why so many are leaving Democrats, they are ashamed of the way… Read more »

Bloomberg, Gifford & Soros spend >$100M combined, compared to NRA’s $3.4M. Who’s buying politicians? Certainly not NRA!! The national police organization, Police One, AND the National Police Chief’s association BOTH back arming school staff, allowing all vetted citizens to bear arms AND agree that armed citizens are valuable in preventing violent crime. These are NRA’s positions! Gun controllers ignore police beliefs; how illogical can a liberal be?? And your quoting Lankford’s fans story about US gun deaths compared to rest of the world! He refused to make public either his raw data OR methodology; he also refuses to respond to… Read more »

Before this November’s elections; NRA should produce a film showing the actual history of the NRA, from the meetings of the Civil War veterans lamenting thepoor marksmanship of soldiers from cities in the North. Included should be , incto establish the “Board for the promotion of rifle practice”; The Director of Civilian marksmanship”; etc.
Notable former members including ; e.g. Reagan, et al.
Include :Eddie Eagle” and other educational items.
LET THE PUBLIC KNOW: the NRA, is NOT “Public Enemy”, but a Patriotic 2nd. Amendment supporter.
Show that many law enforcement trainers are NRA trained.

William… look at the anti-NRA posts here and try to imagine ANY kind of information, video, publication or anything else which might change the alleged minds of the anti-NRA trolls. I assure you… nothing would change their minds. If there were something that would, it already would have had an effect. I joined the NRA about two years ago with ONE purpose in mind… to hear THEIR side of the story in THEIR words, rather than what Bloomberg and the other MSM folks were peddling… long before I even considered buying a hand gun. Now I own one pistol and… Read more »

DeSantis is a strong supporter of the NRA, Trump, and SA rights.
Gillum sued the NRA and is a gun grabbing, Soros funded socialist.
Seems pretty cut and dry to me.
Voting DeSantis in November.

Unfortunately, he has chosen state Rep. Jeanette Núñez of Miami as his running mate. She s a Trump hating RINO who voted for the knee jerk anti 2A measures run through the Florida legislature this spring. Bloomberg has vowed to convert the state of Florida, Here, take the blue pill and you will see rhe light!

Unfortunate but we must make it clear that this is about a republican constitutional government and NOT a socialist party. He may have decided that Nunez is needed to pull in the hispanic populus. It’s still politics as much as I wish it were only about truth and freedom.

Who else could they possibly support?
The Democrat, Gollum, is an anti gun communist.
Let’s hope we can overturn the Florida bump stock ban if DeSantis is elected.
Our Rino senate candidate, Rick Scott, signed the bump stock ban as Governor.
It’s a tough decision to vote for him. At least with the current democrat we know we have an anti gunner
