Lankford Receives Major Endorsement from NRA

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Families for James Lankford announced the campaign was endorsed by the National Rifle Association. Jason Ouimet, Chairman of the NRA-Political Victory Fund penned a letter of support for James’ re-election. James is the only candidate running for Senate in Oklahoma that has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association.

“I am grateful to have the support of the National Rifle Association. Our Second Amendment rights are under attack by Biden and Democrats,” said Lankford. “I’ve supported conservative judges, fought against Biden’s extreme ATF nominee and successfully had him removed from consideration, and I’m pushing back on recent ATF regulations that continue to strip away the rights of every Oklahoman. I will continue to defend the rights of every law-abiding gun owner in Oklahoma & fight the right way to protect our Oklahoma conservative values.”

Dear Sen. Lankford:

On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse your candidacy for the June 28, 2022, Republican primary election for U.S. Senate in Oklahoma. 
As a U.S. Senator, you have staunchly defended the Second Amendment freedoms of NRA members and law-abiding gun owners in Oklahoma and throughout the country. Based on your consistent and proven voting record on Second Amendment issues in the U.S. Senate, you have earned an “A” rating from NRA-PVF. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun legislator who has supported NRA positions on key votes and issues. 
NRA members greatly appreciate your steadfast opposition to the Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden gun control agenda of banning lawfully-owned firearms, ammunition, and magazines. We also appreciate you voting multiple times against a so-called “universal” background check system, which would criminalize the private transfer of firearms between law-abiding citizens and is only enforceable through a federal firearms registry. 
We also thank you for voting against legislation that would deny persons on secret government blacklists their ability to purchase or own a firearm without due process, as well as voting to overturn an Obama/Biden regulation that arbitrarily stripped social security recipients of their ability to possess a firearm for self-defense. 
Moreover, we applaud your support for law-abiding citizens’ right to self-defense by cosponsoring and voting for Right-to-Carry reciprocity legislation, which would allow millions of law-abiding Americans who can carry a concealed firearm in their home state to do so in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry. Furthermore, we commend you for sponsoring legislation to block the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) from implementing a proposed Biden rule to ban pistols attached with stabilizing braces and turn millions of American gun owners into felons overnight. 
Finally, we thank you for voting to confirm scores of judges who respect and value the Second Amendment, including three Supreme Court Justices. The impact of your efforts cannot be overstated, as these judges will protect our individual freedoms for generations to come. 
Congratulations on your “A” rating and endorsement, and thank you for your strong support of the Second Amendment. Good luck with your campaign, and we look forward to our continued relationship.

Jason Ouimet
