when it comes to his position on 2nd Amendment rights.
It certainly seems as though everyone is jumping on the Second Amendment rights bandwagon these days, mainly because it is politically expediently to do so. All rhetoric aside, a closer look at the facts can be very revealing.
A division of the National Rifle Association (NRA), an organization that, in election years, closely monitors and keeps track of gun issues, what the candidates and incumbents positions are, and how the incumbents voted on record concerning gun issues and Second Amendment rights legislation shows candidate Craig Fletcher of the 5th Assembly District is at the head of the class.
Fletcher is the only candidate running for the 5th Assembly District seat to earn an AQ rating from the NRA’s Political Victory Fund, the highest a new candidate can garner. An AQ rating means exactly this: “A pro-gun candidate whose rating is based solely on the candidate’s responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and who does not have a voting record on Second Amendment issues.”
The grading system ranges from A+ to F. The A’s only being awarded to those who have official state voting records. A “?” is awarded to those who, through indifference, disagreement, or hostility failed to respond to the group’s questionnaire.
