NRA Endorses Sen. Larry Boggs in District 7 race
September 30, 2016 -- Sen. Larry Boggs (R-Wilburton) is proud to announce the endorsement of the National Rifle Association in his District 7 re-election campaign. The NRA gives Boggs an A rating for his pro-Second Amendment voting record.
According to the NRA, Senator Boggs is a "solidly pro-gun candidate."
The NRA says an A rating means Boggs is "a candidate who has supported NRA positions on key votes in elective office or a candidate with a demonstrated record of support on key issues."
Boggs co-authored a gun rights bill, SB-2614, which was signed into law by Governor Fallin in 2014.
Larry Boggs is a lifetime member of the NRA and believes this endorsement will have a strong influence on voters in November. The Democrat challenging Boggs refused to return the NRA questionnaire which the NRA considers "an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners' and sportsmen's rights."
"I will always support and defend the Second Amendment," says Sen. Boggs. "It's a right that voters in Southeastern Oklahoma take very seriously so I consider the endorsement of the NRA an honor. It lets voters know I will always be a vigilant leader when it comes to defending our constitutional rights."
Larry Boggs is a lifelong resident of Southeastern Oklahoma, successful business owner and rancher. For details on his plans for Oklahoma visit www.BoggsForSenate.com.
