Saratoga: Today, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) gave Congresswoman Elise Stefanik an A+ rating due to her record of fighting for the Second Amendment and the rights of recreational hunters and target shooters. NSSF is the trade association for firearms that supports the firearm and ammunition industry and Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and America’s hunters and target shooters. They have a membership of thousands of manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen’s organizations and publishers across the country.

“This scorecard is of vital importance to voters as we head into November elections. This tells voters exactly where their lawmakers stand on issues they care about like recreational shooting and hunting and the right to keep and bear arms,” said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel. “The unparalleled firearm sales this year reflect the importance of ensuring lawmakers continue to protect and support the industry that makes it possible for Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. This nonpartisan scorecard reflects the voting record of each legislator. These grades indicate their public voting record as well as the weight and importance of these lawmakers sponsoring and co-sponsoring key legislation, their work on committees, letters signed to support issues and leadership to stand for our industry.”

“I’m proud to be one of the strongest fighters for our Second Amendment rights in New York State and to support recreational hunting and shooting,” said Stefanik. “I’m grateful to the National Shooting Sports Foundation for recognizing my work in Congress on their behalf and I’m proud to receive an A+ rating on their congressional scorecard. Recreational hunting and shooting is an incredibly important industry in the North Country and ensuring the right to bear arms is not infringed upon by the Left is critical to keeping this sport alive. I will never waver in my firm support of the Second Amendment, and I’m proud to have also received an A+ rating from the NRA.”
