Governor Jim Justice Highest Rated Republican for the U.S. Senate by the National Rifle Association

As a lifelong outdoorsman, Governor Justice is the strongest supporter of the Second Amendment and hunting traditions running for U.S. Senate.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) announced that Governor Jim Justice is the ONLY candidate to receive an A+ rating, the highest rating possible of any candidate, in the Republican Primary for U.S. Senate in West Virginia.

Governor Justice received an “A+” for his record defending the Second Amendment as Governor of West Virginia. An “A+” is reserved for a candidate with an excellent record supporting all critical NRA issues who has vigorously promoted and defended the Second Amendment.  

“I’m grateful for the highest rating possible from the NRA and its members, and the grade is attributed to my strong Second Amendment record,” Justice said. “As a lifelong hunter and outdoorsman, I strongly support the Second Amendment and the great traditions around responsible firearm ownership. The Second Amendment guarantees our people the right to keep and bear arms. As the next U.S. Senator from West Virginia, I’ll fight against radical gun control laws and oppose liberal judicial nominees who support infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners.”

Governor Justice is the ONLY Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate to receive the “A+” rating in West Virginia, the highest rating possible. During his time as governor, Justice enacted strong Second Amendment reforms, including:

  • Signed into law the Campus Self Defense Act, which will permit law abiding West Virginians to defend themselves on college campuses.
  • Signed the “West Virginia Keep, Bear, and Drive with Arms Act” into law, affirming West Virginians’ lawful right to possess firearms in their vehicles in the manner they choose.
  • Enacted reforms to stop financial institutions from using payment card processing systems and data to monitor Second Amendment activity and discriminatory conduct.
  • Took action to ensure no government emergency can restrict the Second Amendment by prohibiting state, county, and local governments from banning the lawful carrying, sale, or use of firearms and ammunition during a state of emergency.
  • Reduced the fees for applications to carry concealed firearms lawfully and eliminated the fees for honorably discharged military veterans.
  • Exempted firearms and ammunition sales from state sales and use taxes.
  • Expanded our hunting tradition in West Virginia by legalizing Sunday hunting on all public lands.

“Look at my record; it’s rock solid with the Second Amendment. I’ll always be a strong defender of the Second Amendment and the traditional West Virginia values and heritage of responsible firearm ownership that so many Second Amendment patriots celebrate and pass on to their sons and daughters,” concluded Governor Jim Justice.
