Lafayette, La. — Today, Jeff Landry announced that he has received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in the upcoming Louisiana Governor’s race.
“We are humbled and honored to receive the endorsement of the NRA. As a former police officer, I know how important it is for law-abiding citizens to have the right to self-defense. As someone who grew up hunting and fishing, I was raised to respect firearms. Our Second Amendment must be protected and as Governor, I look forward to continuing that fight,” said Jeff Landry.
NRA’s Endorsement Letter:
Dear Attorney General Landry:
On behalf of NRA’s Political Victory Fund and our members in Louisiana, I am pleased to announce your “A+” rating and endorsement in the October Primary Election for governor. This endorsement reflects your lengthy and proven record of support for the Second Amendment and our hunting heritage. This is our highest rating.
As Attorney General, you worked to protect and expand the right to self-defense by calling on Congress to pass national concealed carry reciprocity. You petitioned the United States Supreme Court to uphold gun owners’ rights in NYSRPA v. Bruen. And you unapologetically stood with gun owners and sportsmen in Louisiana by joining every important legal effort to protect the Second Amendment.
Critically, you have also stood against anti-gun zealots, refusing to bend to their calls for gun control as an ineffective means to reduce violent crime. Clearly, if elected the next governor of Louisiana, you will continue to stand against those who seek to diminish our freedoms by ultimately destroying the Second Amendment and our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
Your rating and endorsement will be listed on our website at www.nrapvf.org and shared with NRA members prior to the upcoming election. Please feel free to communicate your rating and endorsement to voters as you travel the state. Best of luck with your campaign, and we look forward to continuing to work with you to defend and promote our rights in the Pelican State!
