NRA endorses State Sen. Joseph Silk for re-election


State Senator Joseph Silk Earns NRA Endorsement & Top A+ Rating

(Broken Bow, OK, 09/27/2016) – State Senator Joseph Silk, has earned the highest rating the NRA awards to lawmakers, the A+ Rating, and is the only candidate endorsed in the Senate District 5 race on November 8th.

Just 9 lawmakers received the highest A+ Rating from a field of over 130 races and over 200 candidates graded by the NRA this cycle within the state of Oklahoma. Senator Silk is currently running for re-election to State Senate District 5, representing McCurtain, Leflore, Pushmataha, Choctaw and part of Atoka Counties.

According to the NRA, the A+ Rating is reserved to award only legislators who “not only have an excellent voting record on all critical NRA issues, but who have also made a vigorous effort to support and defend the Second Amendment.”

Silk was a Senate author of HB2637, known as the Hunting Freedom Act, signed into law this year by Governor Fallin.

Senator Silk is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment Right to “Keep and Bear Arms” – citing it as a fundamental right of Americans to be secure in our freedom. “When we cannot defend ourselves, we are no longer a free people,” he said. “I will stand tirelessly against those that seek to limit our access to that right, and will work to uphold and defend all of our freedoms defined in the U.S. Constitution.

Blogger's note: reelecting Sen. Silk is of utmost importance for Oklahoma conservatives and especially pro-life activists. He is the most conservative freshman in the State Senate and has taken very bold stands on ending abortion and protecting our rights.
