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.

    Dear NRA,
    I don’t feel very respected here in Kalifornia.
    You know that state you’ve completely left to the liberal gun control leftists.
    We’re getting it up the yazoo big time here, which by the way is one of the reasons I quit the NRA and went grass roots.
    I’m not seeing anything out of the NRA here so sorry but I don’t feel very excited.
