Mitch McConnell’s Inconsistent Record on Gun Rights
Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC released the following statement regarding the NRA’s endorsement of Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY):
“It’s sad to see the NRA continue their policy of reflexively endorsing the incumbent in any given race,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project. “While Mitch McConnell would be a better choice for Second Amendment rights than Alison Lundergan Grimes, he is not the best choice in the race. Mitch McConnell has shown himself to be a fair-weather friend of gun owners over the years and has refused to lead against Sen. Harry Reid’s anti-gun agenda this year as GOP Leader. If not for the leadership of conservatives like Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), the Senate would have passed a gun control bill this year. If Senator McConnell wins the primary and no longer fears reprisal from conservatives, he will not be a reliable voice against the growing push to limit choices of guns and ammunition.”
Here is a sampling of some of McConnell’s shortcomings on gun rights issues:
“Matt Bevin will be a consistent voice for the Second Amendment,” continued Ryun. “He will oppose every effort of the left to infringe upon gun rights, including all procedural votes. Bevin is a concealed-carry permit holder and understands the effects of Washington’s heavy-handed efforts to curb gun ownership instead of dealing with the root causes of violent crime. That is why Gun Owners’ of America, the most effective voice for gun owners, endorsed Matt Bevin.”
