Hopefully, Rand Paul will receive the NRA endorsement with our help. Rand is the obvious choice for any organization with an interest in the right to keep and bear arms. This is a great opportunity for the NRA to demonstrate that they are solidly behind gun rights. There is no stronger second amendment candidate in that race.
I think the NRA makes these decisions based on issues of electability, often picking a weaker candidate on the gun rights issue as a pragmatic compromise, endorsing a candidate not simply on the basis of gun rights, but based instead on a more complex calculation that considers gun rights and electability. In the case of Rand Paul, there is no need to make any compromise. Rand is the best second amendment candidate AND he's leading in the polls with a lot of positive momentum carrying him forward.
Rand Paul has already received the Gun Owners of America endorsement. It's time for the NRA to endorse Rand Paul as well.
