NRA Endorses Brenna Findley for Iowa’s Attorney General

Brenna Findley, Republican candidate for Iowa Attorney General, has earned the endorsement of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF).
Said Chris Cox, NRA-PVF Chairman, “Gun owners and hunters in Iowa can trust Brenna Findley to fight for their Second Amendment rights.”

In stark contrast Findley’s opponent, Attorney General Tom Miller, has earned an “F” rating from the NRA-PVF for refusing to stand with an overwhelming majority of state attorneys general who signed pro-Second Amendment “friend of the court” briefs in the landmark Supreme Court cases of Heller and McDonald. Additionally, Miller’s office issued interpretations of Iowa’s firearms preemption statute and right-to-carry law that took an extremely narrow view of the rights of Iowa gun owners.

Said Cox, “Brenna Findley’s support for individual gun ownership rights has earned her an “A+” rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF. We ask all Iowa gun owners, hunters and NRA members to vote for Brenna Findley for Attorney General on November 2.”

When learning of the endorsement Findley said, “I am committed to upholding and defending our Second Amendment rights. I appreciate the support of Iowa’s gun owners, hunters and sportsmen.”
