National Rifle Association endorses Karen Handel in CD-6

The National Rifle Association is weighing in on the race for Tom Price's former House seat. In a Wednesday announcement, the powerful group's Political Victory Fund said they will throw their support behind Republican Karen Handel. 

"Karen Handel supports our Right to Keep and Bear Arms,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “She has fought for the values and freedoms that Georgians hold dear. In Congress, she will defend our right to protect ourselves and our families.”

In a release, the NRA pointed to Handel's support of concealed carry reciprocity legislation, and opposition to attempts to ban certain firearms and ammunition. They added that she will stand strong "against the gun control agenda" of Democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi (who has worked to boost Jon Ossoff's fundraising efforts). 

“We're asking every freedom-loving Georgian in the Sixth District to vote Karen Handel for Congress in the June 20th special election,” Cox added.
