BEDFORD, NH – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner is one of a handful of candidates nationwide endorsed by the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR).
“I thank the Association and its members for this endorsement,” says Messner, a Wolfeboro resident working to unseat Democrat U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen. “I have always believed in the right to bear arms, envisioned by our Founders and protected by our Constitution, and the National Association for Gun Rights has been a steadfast ally in the fight against relentless attacks on our Second Amendment freedoms.”
“At a time when the Second Amendment is under assault by anti-gun politicians in both parties, it’s encouraging to see a candidate make protecting the right to bear arms a centerpiece of his campaign.” says NAGR PAC Director Dudley Brown.
Messner has vowed to fight legislation that would infringe upon the Constitutional right of Granite Staters to defend themselves, their families or their home, or to engage in hunting or other shooting sports.
The National Association for Gun Rights has become one of America’s leading champions of gun ownership since its founding in 2000. One of its principal focuses is making “Constitutional Carry” a reality in 50 states, and the group actively supports prominent Republican U.S. Senators, such as Rand Paul (KY) and Mike Lee (UT).
