NRA leader: ‘Nothing more important’ than GOP Senate takeover

National Rifle Association (NRA) President Jim Porter called on members of his organization Saturday to help Republicans take control of the Senate at this year’s midterm elections.

In a speech at the group’s annual meeting in Indianapolis, Ind., Porter said that the effort was “critical.”

“There’s nothing more important than who gets elected to the United States Senate,” he said.

“I surely don’t mean any disrespect to anyone, but folks, it’s time that [Senate] Majority Leader Harry Reid [D-Nev.], after the next election, become the minority leader,” he said to thundering applause.

He added that gun legalization efforts in recent years have amounted to “greatest advancements of Second Amendment freedom since the Bill of Rights was written, and come November we’re going to prove that we’re not done yet.”

Republicans need to pick up six seats in November to boot Democrats from power in the Senate.

Recent polling has shown the GOP within striking distance of that mark. Democratic senators in Arkansas, Louisiana, Alaska and Montana are considered in danger, and open seats in South Dakota and West Virginia could easily wind up in Republican hands.

    Dear Jim Porter, NO we won’t vote for Republicans just because they’re Republicans. There are a lot of Republican traitors that consistently vote AGAINST our Constitutional Rights. Among the many backstabs by the NRA, was campaign donations to Harry Reid (Speaker of the ANTI-Gun Democrat Senate) from the NRA!! Dear Jim, ESFOAD.

    In talking about vulnerable Democrat Party Senators, Mark Warner from Virginia can be replaced, I think. Whoever becomes the GOP challenger needs to hammer on Warner’s voting record. He campaigned last time as if he was a conservative. However, when he got to DC he has voted over 90% of the time with the liberal majority. This includes the Democrat Party’s Obamacare, and he supports it to this day. People across the Commonwealth need to constantly keep this in front of the voters and make him be constantly on defense.

      Bet you are using an Apple product to comment with. They have a mind of their own, or maybe comments are being monitored by them and deleted or changed if it is too conservative.
