NRA-PVF Endorses Gov. Ivey for Reelection in Alabama

Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to announce its endorsement for the reelection of Kay Ivey as governor of Alabama.

"Kay Ivey has long demonstrated an unwavering support for our Second Amendment freedoms," said Jason Ouimet, chairman, NRA-PVF. “She is the strongest candidate in this race and has a proven record of defending our constitutional right to self-defense."

As governor, and previously as lieutenant governor, Ivey has generated an unvarnished pro-Second Amendment record. No where was her support more evident than her recent signing of Alabama's constitutional carry law earlier this spring. With her signature, every law-abiding Alabamian who can legally possess a firearm now has the right to carry that firearm for self-defense without a permit from the state.

“Today, in states across the country, the right to keep and bear arms is under attack. Blue state liberals, the mainstream media and Hollywood would love nothing more than to see an America without guns. Well, if they got their way, that country wouldn’t be ‘America’ at all,” Gov. Ivey said. “Here in Alabama, we don’t rely on the permission of gun-control loving liberals to exercise our God-given constitutional rights. We demand them, and no one will ever take them away. I know they won’t be taking my Smith and Wesson. In Alabama, ‘we dare defend our rights’ isn’t just a motto – it’s a way of life. I will always defend the right to keep and bear arms.”

Ivey earned an "A" rating from the NRA. This grade is reserved for candidates with an excellent record on critical Second Amendment issues. In addition to constitutional carry, Ivey has also opposed gun control efforts such as banning commonly owned firearms and magazines while supporting a strengthening of Alabama’s preemption statute.

“We can count on Kay Ivey to protect the rights of Alabama’s law-abiding gun owners. We urge all NRA members, supporters, and outdoorsmen in Alabama to vote Kay Ivey for governor in the May 24 primary election," Ouimet concluded.​​


Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
