– Republican Nominee for U.S. Senate in Missouri

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt won a heavily contested primary earlier this year and is set to become the state's next junior U.S. Senator. As AG, Schmitt stopped the FBI from obtaining data on conceal carry permit holders in his state. In July, Schmitt was told that several FBI Agents “planned to visit several county sheriff's departments in August to audit concealed carry weapons permits.” Per the Associated Press: “Schmitt said the concealed carry law passed when he was a state senator included the provision that only elected county sheriffs would have access to the permit records because lawmakers ‘wanted to leave no doubt that the citizens of Missouri have a right to bear , and the federal government has no business poking around to find out their identities.'”

Residents of the Show Me State will be better off with Schmitt as their senator compared to retiring incumbent Roy Blunt, who was one of 15 Senate Republicans to side with Democrats in the congressional gun control push earlier this summer.

Senior U.S. Senator From Iowa

Iowa's longest-serving Senator is once again running for reelection. Grassley has been a stalwart defender of gun rights since he was first elected to the Senate in 1981. Contrary to votes recently taken by his fellow Iowa Senator Joni Ernst, Grassley has always stood up for the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Not only Iowans, but all Americans, look forward to his further service to our nation in the next Congress, where he is poised to reassume the position of Senate Judiciary chairman should Republicans regain control of the Senate.

Grassley has a lifetime A+ rating with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and has actively worked to further 2A rights. One of the most notable actions recently taken by the senator was the 2021 reintroduction of the “Grassley-Cruz” amendment of 2013. Last year, Grassley spearheaded an effort to bring back the amendment as a separate bill that would prevent “ by ensuring that relevant agencies and institutions accurately submit records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).”

– Republican Nominee for U.S. Senate in North Carolina

Budd is currently the congressman for North Carolina's 13th District and is running to represent his state in the United State Senate during the next Congress.

His House voting record has earned him an A rating from the NRA. As this past year has shown, more than a few Senate Republicans are willing to compromise on their promises to gun owners when the climate doesn't factor into defending this key constitutional right, and Budd will be a reliable vote for preserving gun rights, not suppressing them.

Jen Kiggans Republican Nominee for U.S. Congress, Virginia's 2nd District

Kiggans, the Republican nominee in VA-02 (Virginia Beach, Suffolk) and a current Virginia state senator has a solid voting record on many issues, including gun rights. Her record of supporting the Second Amendment earned her an A rating from both the NRA and Gun Owners of America (GOA). VoteSmart noted that Kiggans received a 92% rating from the NRA and a 100% rating from the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL).

Republican Nominee for New York Attorney General

If Henry is able to unseat New York Attorney General Letitia James, that would be a monumental win for the gun rights community. Letitia James, New York's attorney general, is an a chief nemesis of gun owners. During her time in office, James has used her position to pursue a deeply divisive political agenda that may be her downfall at the ballot box this month. Henry is polling well against the incumbent. An October poll by Trafalgar had Henry leading — in a state that then-candidate Joe Biden won 61% to 38% over President .

Which candidate do you like most and are there any others deserving of their own special mention? As always, tell us below!
