State Representative Rob Sampson has received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association as well as an “A” rating in his bid for re-election to the Connecticut House of Representatives.
The NRA or National Rifle Association is America’s foremost defender of Second Amendment rights. Since its inception in 1871, it has also been the premier firearms education organization in the world. Purposes and objectives of the NRA include protecting the right to keep and bear arms, furthering the shooting sports, marksmanship and safety training, and the promotion of hunter safety.
“As a gun owner and sportsman myself, I understand the issues and concerns that the NRA fights for.” Sampson said. “It’s an honor to have the support of this important organization to ensure that the fundamental principles contained in our Constitution are vocalized in Hartford. I believe strongly in the importance of maintaining our second amendment liberties and will never waver from my responsibility to defend them.”
Earlier this year, Rep. Sampson was also honored by CCDL, the Connecticut Citizen’s Defense League, the state’s largest pro-second amendment organization, as their “Legislator of the Year”.
