  • Rating Letter to Tiahrt from the NRA

    NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA
    POLITICAL VICTORY FUND
    11250 WAPLES MILL ROAD
    FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA 22030


    NRA-PVF


    July 21, 2010


    The Honorable Todd Tiahrt
    Tiahrt for Senate
    2250 N.Rock Road #118A
    Wichita, KS 67226


    Dear Congressman Tiahrt:

    Thank you for the opportunity to answer questions regarding your current and past ratings from the National Rifle Association. On behalf of the NRA Political Victory Fund and the more than 50,000 NRA members in Kansas, I am pleased to inform you of your "A+" rating in the 2010 Republican primary election for the U.S. Senate. While not an endorsement, an "A+" is our highest rating and a testament to your steadfast support of the rights of gun owners and sportsmen throughout the nation. As for your past ratings, you received an "A+" in your last three congressional races and you have never received a rating less than an "A".

    Throughout your career, you have consistently worked to defend the rights of America's law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen by voting for every pro-gun bill, including critical pro-gun reforms such as the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act; legislation to expand Right-to-Carry to national parks and wildlife refuges; legislation to reform the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and legislation to restore Second Amendment rights to the residents of our nation's capital. In addition, you signed critical friend of the court briefs in the landmark Heller and McDonald cases which recognized the Second Amendment as protecting a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms.

    Most importantly, gun owners all over America are grateful for the "Tiahrt Amendment" - which protects the privacy rights of gun owners and protects law enforcement investigations by prohibiting the public release of sensitive law enforcement firearms trace data. Since becoming law, this effort has ensured this information would continue to be available to law enforcement agencies for bona fide criminal investigations, but could not be used by anti-gun trial lawyers and big city mayors intent on bankrupting the firearms industry.

    America's law-abiding gun owners owe you a debt of gratitude for your unwavering commitment in the face of repeated assaults by anti-gun opponents in Congress and the media.

    Thanks again for your support and your service. If you have any further questions about your ratings, please do not hesitate to call me at (703) 267-1140.

    Yours in freedom,


    Chris W. Cox
    Chairman

    MEDIA ADVISORY:
    PRESS CONFERENCE WITH
    KANSAS STATE RIFLE ASSOCIATION


    WHAT: Press Conference: Kansas State Rifle Association and U.S. Senate Candidate Todd Tiahrt

    WHEN: Monday, July 26th, 1:00 PM


    WHERE: State Capitol Building, Old Supreme Court Room, Topeka, Kansas




    OPEN TO THE PUBLIC



    MEDIA ADVISORY
    The Kansas State Rifle Association and U.S. Senate Candidate Todd Tiahrt will hold a press conference on Monday, July 26th at 1:00 p.m. The press conference will be held in the Old Supreme Court Room at the State Capitol Building, Topeka, Kansas.

    The Kansas State Rifle Association will discuss Tiahrt's long record of fighting for the rights of firearm owners and his success in protecting our Second Amendment rights.

    Tiahrt is the leading conservative running to replace Sam Brownback in the United States Senate. He is known nationally for protecting the privacy rights of firearm owners as the author of a federal law known as the Tiahrt Amendment. Tiahrt has come under repeated attack from gun-control organizations and liberal East Coast mayors, such as NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, for his role in drafting this firearm privacy-right law. The Tiahrt Amendment is supported by the NRA and the Paternal Order of Police, the world's largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers.

    Tiahrt is consistently rated as the most conservative member of the Kansas delegation and holds the highest lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union and the National Taxpayers Union. He is the only candidate for the Senate who has never voted for a tax increase, and he has been recognized throughout his career for fighting for lower taxes, traditional values and limited government.

    Tiahrt has been endorsed by conservative leaders from across the state and nation, including Gov. Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, former Congressman Tom Tancredo, Minuteman founder Jim Gilchrist, Karl Rove, Dr. James Dobson, Steve Forbes, Dick Morris, Rep. Mike Pence, former US Attorney General John Ashcroft, JC Watts, Sen. Jim Inhofe, Kansas House Majority Leader Ray Merrick, Kansas House Speaker Pro Tem Arlen Siegfreid, Kansas House Assistant Majority Leader Peggy Mast, Kansas House Majority Whip Rob Olson, 23 Fourth District State Legislators, former Sen. Rick Santorum, Morton Blackwell, Tony Perkins, David Keene, Erick Erickson, former Sen. George Allen, Congressman Mike Rogers, former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, former Congressman Jim Ryun, and conservative talk radio icon Mark Levin.

    The Kansas State Rifle Association joins the growing list of conservative groups to support Tiahrt, including the Tea Party Express, the Northwest Johnson County Republicans organization, the Kansas 9.12 Project, the Kansas Federation of College Republicans, the Independence Caucus of Kansas, Concerned Women for America PAC, Kansans for Life PAC, Family Research Council PAC, Citizens United, the Traditional Values Coalition and Eagle Forum.
