Senator Strange touts NRA endorsement in TV ad

Highlights Strange's record of fighting Obama agenda while AG

Birmingham, Ala.  -  U.S. Senator Luther Strange released his second TV ad on Tuesday, highlighting the NRA's endorsement of his special election primary candidacy and his record of fighting President Obama's policies and executive orders while serving as Alabama's Attorney General. 

"My opponents may talk about their conservative beliefs, but I'm the candidate who repeatedly took on Obama's radical agenda in court, and won," said Strange. "While a dysfunctional Congress and liberal courts kept passing the buck, I worked hard alongside my fellow Republican Attorneys General from across the nation to fight the assault on religious liberties and gun-rights, while stopping Obama's efforts to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants."

Strange's efforts to protect the Second Amendment resulted in the NRA endorsing his candidacy last week.NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox said in a letter to Senator Strange,"Throughout your career, you have consistently opposed all attempts to ban lawfully-owned firearms and magazines, and have stood strong against Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and former New York Mayer Michael Bloomberg's gun control agenda. You have been a champion for gun owners in Alabama and across the country, and you are the right person to succeed Jeff Sessions as U.S. Senator." 

"The right to bear arms is our last line of defense against tyranny, and one I'll continue to fight for on behalf of the people of Alabama," responded Strange, a life member of the NRA

Background: 

  • In the Senate, Strange is a co-sponsor of the Constitutional Conceal Carry Act, introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), which allows permit holders in one state to conceal carry in other states which allow conceal carry.
  • In addition, he recently co-sponsored The Hearing Protection Act, introduced by Sen. Mike Crapo (R-IN), which removes the unnecessary tax and paperwork associated with purchasing a suppressor.  
  • As Alabama's Attorney General, Strange worked to remove signs that unlawfully restricted the rights of Alabama gun-owners to conceal and open carry.
  • He also joined the NRA and other Republican Attorneys General to fight the Obama administration's attacks on the Second Amendment in federal court.
