Chris W. Cox Says "I Can't Thank You Enough"

I can't thank you enough

Dear NRA friends,

At the beginning of this year, I asked you and your fellow NRA members to help win the most important election in our freedom’s history.

We knew it wouldn't be easy.

We knew we’d be fighting against more anti-gun money and more anti-gun hatred than we’ve ever experienced in any election.  We knew we’d be going up against mainstream media elitists who have all but declared war on our Second Amendment freedom.  And we knew we’d be going toe-to-toe against the most anti-gun president we’ve ever seen.

But YOU answered the call.  YOU chose to Stand and Fight for your freedom.

And yesterday, thanks to YOU and YOUR support, we sent a clear message to Washington, D.C. and politicians at every level of government that they have just two choices:

Defend our Second Amendment freedom, or face the consequences on Election Day!
Nearly everywhere you look on the map – Arkansas, Colorado, West Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Wisconsin, Texas, Kentucky, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Idaho – the pro-gun candidates we endorsed through NRA’s Political Victory Fund won big races over their anti-gun opponents.

In Maryland, we played an instrumental role in CRUSHING Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg’s gun ban candidate for governor!

The results speak for themselves.  In nearly every close race, and even in some races that weren’t predicted to be close, YOUR leadership as an NRA member made all the difference.


  1. I wonder how hollow this claim of victory happens to be since Brian Frosh defeated his republican opponent to become AG? Additionally, Hogan's campaign said that electing Brown would be the equivalent of a third term for O'Malley.

    I don't think a whole lot was made about the issue of gun rights in Maryland; however, taxes WERE a big issue.

    I would also toss in that Brown is black and Maryland does happen to be a Southern State.

    The upshot is that I594 won in Washington State, Dannel Malloy beat Tom Foley, and John Hickenloper beat Bob Beauprez.

    In fact, a lot of people turned out for this mid-term election which is unusual in the US.

  2. Ah, I get it. When politicians in favor of gun control win, its due to common sense gun laws that people want. When they lose, its about taxes, or because someone, somewhere in the party is black, including of course the President.

  3. Let's not forget this:

    Hardly a resounding victory for gun rights.

    And "Honest Gill" will say anything to get elected.

    1. "KUSA - Democrats will no longer have control of the Colorado state Senate, according to a 9NEWS projection.
      Republicans will gain one to three seats over the Democrats. It's still too early to know exactly how many seats they'll pick up.
      The Colorado House may also go to the Republicans or remain under Democratic control. Votes are still being counted in several close races. Some of those contests are in the battleground counties of Adams and Jefferson."

  4. "Nazi-looking gun rights fanatic"? Really, Mike?

  5. This election was not about guns. The people who won happen to be more pro gun than not.

    1. "This election was not about guns. The people who won happen to be more pro gun than not. "

      So why might gun control advocacy groups taking credit for these successes?

      "We also had an important trifecta of winning Governors - Cuomo (NY), Malloy (CT) and Hickenlooper (CO). All championed the most comprehensive gun-safety legislation in the wake of the tragic Newtown shootings and were targeted for defeat by the NRA. In fact, Gov. Hickenlooper was the NRA's number one target this year. The NRA is not invincible!
      Two other exciting wins in governor’s races: In Pennsylvania, Democrat Tom Wolf defeated the NRA-endorsed Republican Gov. Tom Corbett. Wolf supports expanded background checks and an assault weapons ban."

    2. I'll just repeat what I said since you seem to not be able to read, this election was not about guns.

    3. The gun control group cited above seems to disagree with you.

    4. By the way your claim that the recall meant gun control was finishec seems to have been wrong since the Democrats got their seats back in the real election. Yet you went on and on how that recall was the reflection of the people and a movement nationwide. No problem you must be used to being wrong by now.

    5. Do you really think those new Democrats are going to vote for gun control after seeing what happened to their predecessors? These are districts that vote blue but still like their guns. Pro-gun liberals are the worst thing for your movement because you can't just drum up cultural wars.

    6. I think Malloy, even more than the others mentioned, got re-elected on his gun stance.
