U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- NSSF, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, released its 2022 Congressional Report Card, grading all 430 sitting U.S. Representatives (as of Aug. 8) and 100 U.S. Senators on key legislation that is of critical importance to the firearm industry, Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and America’s hunters and target shooters. Five U.S. House of Representatives were not graded due to special elections to fill vacancies and have no key legislative record to review.

“This scorecard is of vital importance to voters as we head into November elections. This tells voters exactly where their lawmakers stand on issues they care about like recreational shooting and hunting and the right to keep and bear arms,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “This nonpartisan scorecard reflects the voting record of each legislator. These grades indicate their public voting record as well as their sponsoring and co-sponsoring key legislation, their work on committees, letters signed to support issues and leadership to support our industry.”

NSSF awarded 32 U.S. Senators and 116 U.S. Representatives the highest rating of “A+.” This includes U.S. Sens. John Boozman (R-Ark.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), John Kennedy (R-La.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.). These senators are all running for re-election in 2022. All U.S. House of Representatives seats will be voted upon in November.

Grades are meant to analyze the level of support of each lawmaker during the 117th Congress and do not constitute an endorsement or opposition to a candidate’s election. The entire report, including the list of key legislation that comprised the scores, is available here.

“Marco Rubio (R-FL)” is in the 32 highest A+ rated Senators???? Are you f – – -ing serious????

They must have compiled this list from NRA records as it lost all credibility with that entry.


NSSF’s worse than NRA. Don’t care about small firms or pvt transfer rights (competes w/the big boys). Clik pic to see NSSF’s RINO Gun Control Heroes.

Gave fake As to 13 of 15 Sen RINOs who backed “Safer Communities” Gun Control. 2 fake Bs. As/Bs to the bulk of House RINOs who backed it. No Position! i.e. [wink-wink] Vote for it! We won’t downgrade!”

Re enforcing the gun controls most of us deem unconstitutional & the rest deem nearly all unconstitutional NSSF calls ATF “our partners”.

6 of 7 Rs who voted to convict Trump in ’21 are NSSF Heroes

NSSF makes noise about the ATF, but then partners with them. Wish they’d make up their f**king minds which side they’re on.


There are several RINOs on these lists that do not deserve the A or B rating they got . These clowns sold gun owners out on several occasions. Not going to name names . You know who they are ! Vote accordingly . Take out the trash .


That’s for damn sure.


The ATF is not a ‘partner’, they are an adversary! To think of them as anything else is to admit you don’t follow the Constitution or believe in natural rights.


The NSSF report card is about as accurate as NRA ratings. Look how many of these scumbag voted for arms laws and still received good grades.


John Cornyn does not deserve an “A”!
Sure wish he’d retire!


The NSSF are BATFE’s butt boys and only represent business interests and FUDDS, NOT the 2nd Amendment.


Depending on which residence in Colorado I vote from (District 2 or 4), the incumbents, Boebert and Buck are both solid 2A supporters.
Colorado’s Senators, Bennett and Lickshispooper (Hickenlooper) are both Gun Grabbing Sacks of Schitt. I’ll vote for anyone running against either one, but Denver and the surrounding Commie Communes pretty much have the Senate in a death grip.
