The National Rifle Association is claiming victory for a number of “impressive wins” in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
“Yesterday, America’s gun owners sent a strong message to Washington, D.C. that their constitutional freedoms must be respected,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF.
“Michael Bloomberg and national anti-gun groups were dealt a significant blow by Second Amendment supporters across the country,” Cox continued. “A clear takeaway from these elections is that candidates who support gun control do so at their political peril.”
The NRA said pro-gun candidates won in Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Dakota and West Virginia. Additionally, pro-gun governors won in Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Texas and Wisconsin, while a Bloomberg-funded governor in Maryland was ousted.
