Congressman Boyle Touts ‘F’ Rating From The National Rifle Association
WASHINGTON, DC – In the newly-released NRA ratings for the 2018 election, Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-13) received an ‘F’ grade, reflecting his consistent, strong support for commonsense gun violence prevention measures. In response to the grade, Congressman Boyle stated:
“I will wear this ‘F’ from the NRA as a badge of honor. The NRA’s dangerous agenda, promoting unfettered access to weapons of war for even the most violent among us, has cost countless Americans their lives.”
Congressman Boyle has a long track record of supporting reasonable gun violence protection legislation. He participated in a sit-in on the House floor held in the aftermath of the Pulse nightclub shooting to call for changing the nation’s gun laws. He cosponsors legislation to close the “gun show loophole” (H.R. 1612), prohibit gun sales without background checks (H.R. 3464), allow the federal government to fund gun violence research (H.R. 1478), and establish a Congressional Select Committee on Gun Violence (H. Res. 367). Congressman Boyle is also a member of the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force.
