Treat NRA grades with skepticism

Gun Rights

With all the “grades” being issued by the National Rifle Association (NRA) for Montana political candidates I’d like to offer some perspective on this highly partisan organization.

I am 74 years old and have hunted for nearly 60 years in Montana.  When I was honored to be elected as a Democrat to the Montana House of Representatives back in the 1990s I earned a “D” rating from the NRA the entire time I was in office.  The Republican gentleman who defeated me in my fourth bid for re-election had never hunted, fished or owned a gun but received an “A” rating from the NRA.

So when highly-qualified candidates…. such as Kathleen Williams, Steve Bullock or Mike Cooney…. offer to serve us in public office, take their NRA “grades” with a grain of salt and a tablespoon of skepticism.
