Ed Martin, Republican candidate for Attorney General of Missouri, talks about 2nd Amendment issues and endorsements ahead of Tuesday's election. Martin's opponent, Chris Koster, was endorsed by the NRA despite the fact that both Martin and Koster received the same "A" rating from the group. When two candidates earn the same rating, the NRA has a policy of endorsing the incumbent.
Martin was endorsed by another 2nd Amendment group, the Gun Owners of America (GOA). In their statement endorsing Martin, GOA said:
Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to endorse Ed Martin for Attorney General.
Ed Martin is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment who is dedicated to protecting the rights of Missouri’s gun owners.
As state Attorney General, Ed will stand against unconstitutional intrusions of the federal government. He understands that the U.S Constitution is a check federal power—not a grant of unlimited authority.
