John White: Publish NRA ratings

Publish NRA ratings

I found information about how legislators vote for the NRA-backed legislation.

The Official NRA Political Victory Fund is the NRA’s political action committee.

In the past, Congressmen David Price and Mel Watts have had the coveted “F” rating from the NRA. Sen. Richard Burr and a number of others have an “A” rating.

I suggest you publish the NRA ratings (based on voting records) for both federal and state legislators.

Are those with “A” ratings still strong advocates for carry laws (in restaurants, schools, churches, etc.) and do they still oppose the assault weapons ban?

A number of your readers would like to know.
