2016 Candidate Ratings

The 2016 elections are around the corner. Gun rights in this state are in peril and the only way to maintain our liberties is to elect good people who believe in preserving our Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights.

Oregon Firearms Federation Political Action Committee has compiled candidate ratings.

Candidates who are incumbents have been graded on their votes on gun bills. In 2015 and 2016, anti-gun votes were overwhelmingly from Democrats. On the major gun related bills, Republicans voted 100% pro-gun.

For candidates who are not incumbents or who have no previous record of serving in elected office, grades were determined by answers to our candidate survey. “NR” in the grade column indicates the candidate chose not to answer a survey. If no candidates in your district answered the survey, contact them and ask them why they do not want their positions made public.

PLEASE NOTE, for candidates who are NOT incumbents or have no history in the legislature, a grade of “B+” is the highest grade they can get. This is NOT an indication that the candidate is lacking in their pro-gun positions.

An “*” next to a grade indicates that OFFPAC has endorsed the candidate. As you can see, there are several non-incumbents with a “B+” who are endorsed by OFFPAC.  The “B+” is simply a way of distinguishing between good candidates and good candidates who have actually cast votes on tough issues.

To find out what districts you are in, please use this link.   Don’t sit this election out.
