NRA Leaders Endorse Sen. Roy Blunt

posted on August 13, 2016

U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., who is seeking re-election this year, was joined at a recent campaign stop by NRA’s Wayne LaPierre and Chris W. Cox.

Addressing the crowd gathered in Missouri, Blunt said, “The problem is not that we don’t have enough laws, the problem is the administration isn’t enforcing the laws we do have.” 

LaPierre, NRA executive vice president and chief executive officer, concurred. “The whole discussion about gun control has nothing to do with making people safer. It is simply that they have a political agenda that they don’t want Americans in this country to own guns,” he said. “They should enforce existing gun laws against the people who commit crimes, and they don’t do it.” 

The NRA leaders also took the opportunity to endorse Blunt. NRA-ILA Executive Director Cox called the senator a “champion for individual freedom” and urged voters to turn out in November.
