NRA and Oklahoma Second Amendment Association Endorse Candidate Jim Olsen as the Gun Rights Advocate for Oklahoma State Rep, District 2Roland, OK— Both of the pre-eminent gun rights advocacy organizations in the nation published their findings that Republican Jim Olsen is the gun rights advocate on the November 6 ballot for the open Oklahoma State House District 2 seat. In spite of the recent attempt by Democrat nominee Stites to mask his agenda with an offer of a gun shooting show, the NRA released a big question mark on how Stites would actually vote if he was given the opportunity in the state legislature to uphold or deny our constitutional right. The ‘?’ rating is defined by the NRA on the www.nrapvf.org website: “A rating of ‘?’ often indicates indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners' and sportsmen's rights.”
Oklahoma Second Amendment Association issued a less than impressive ‘C’ rating to the Democrat nominee Stites. Don Spencer, President of the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association said, “Mr. Stites received a ‘C’ rating from his OK2A Candidate Survey while Mr. Jim Olsen received an ‘A’ and our endorsement. Jim Olsen was an easy endorsement to make. The survey is not based on how many guns a candidate has, or how good a marksman, but on whether they will defend liberty.”While Olsen could have shown his own Oklahoma handgun license, guns, and shooting skills in response to the recent comical effort by Mr. Stites, Jim Olsen recognizes that the freedom and liberty to exercise the 2nd Amendment is a serious issue. Olsen instead followed the appropriate action of sharing his beliefs and awaiting leading experts in Constitutional gun rights advocacy to review the qualifications and convictions of the two candidates to determine who would better champion the Constitutional rights of the people to “keep and bear arms.”
Jim Olsen is thankful for the thorough review, and the endorsements and top grades awarded to him by both the NRA and OK2A. “I firmly believe the creation of the Second Amendment was clear and I will follow the path the Founders intended: the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Just as with all constitutional rights, my constituents can be assured that I will champion the Second Amendment in my legislative actions,” Olsen said.The general election for the open Oklahoma State House District 2 seat will be held on November 6, 2018.
