Leading Candidates Ignore The Rights of Gun Owners

Tennessee Firearms Association has conducted its 2018 candidate survey.

Rather than give “ratings” or “endorsements” which can be misleading and/or influenced by inappropriate factors, the TFA is releasing both a copy of the blank survey that was sent to the candidates as well as a response spreadsheet.

TFA tabulated the responses into a spreadsheet. This response shows an “S” for support under each question that the candidate answered with an unqualified supportive answer. If the candidate did not answer the question or the answer was negative, then the response is blank to indicate a negative response and make the grid easier to identify positive responses. Once again, a candidate that did not return his or her survey is presumed to have answered in the negative on all questions. Further, any candidate who refuses to answer a survey disclosing in writing what they do or do not support should be cautiously avoided.

TFA has scanned all original candidate responses in the event a candidate wishes to challenge the tabulations. TFA does not plan, at this time, to post the individual scanned responses online.

You can view the survey questions and responses on the TFA’s website on the 2018 Survey Response post.

Joining and supporting TFA is an investment in the fight to restore our constitutional rights and to fight against politicians who are willing to sell their votes and your rights to whichever business interest gives them the most money!
