Gov. Tate Reeves (R) will return to the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion after winning reelection to the governorship of the Magnolia State.

Throughout his tenure as governor, Reeves has defended the right to keep and bear arms. As such the NRA Political Victory Fund endorsed him with an A+ rating.

“I’ve known Gov. Reeves for several years, and he has always been eager to help NRA promote pro-gun policies. At the height of the recent pandemic, while some governors tried to shut down firearm manufacturers and retailers, Gov. Reeves made sure they remained open as essential services,” wrote Randy Kozuch, executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (ILA).

Reeves was also endorsed in his initial gubernatorial run in 2019. “The NRA wholeheartedly endorses Reeves for governor and looks forward to what he can accomplish in the state’s highest office,” said the NRA at the time.

Since then, Reeves has lived up to this endorsement. In 2019, he designated firearms manufacturers and retailers as “essential businesses” during outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, Reeves also signed legislation that would block credit-card companies from creating de facto registries of firearms owners by implementing a specific code used for firearms purchases.

“Governor Reeves has always been steadfast in his defense of law-abiding citizens' Second Amendment rights in the state,” wrote the NRA-ILA at that time.

The good news of Reeves’ victory comes in addition to that from the neighboring state of Louisiana, where Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) will become governor. Landry is a staunch defender of our freedoms and has promised to pass constitutional carry in the Bayou State.

These two wins illustrate the importance of elections and how crucial a part they play in the ongoing fight to defend our constitutional rights.
