In the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy, President Obama on Wednesday announced new national gun control measures. He has already urged members of Congress to do the same. Here is our comprehensive look at where lawmakers stand on guns, as well as political spending and voting history...
(How individual members, House and Senate, rank with the NRA and the Brady Campaign on Gun Rights and Gun Control)

Texas redistricting moved me from an “A” to a “F” Representative.
Good reference. You’re right, the graphics are pretty cool. Thanks for posting it.
I’ve always thought Harry Reid a snake in the grass when it comes to gun rights. Sure he’s prevented certain laws from coming up for a vote in the senate. But he also voted to confirm Obama’s two anti-gun justices to the USSC. He can’t be trusted yet this graphic ranks him a “B”.
Great reference tool, thanks for posting.
BTW, I don't completely trust the NRA ratings ... I believe they overstate a given senaturd or reprehensible's dedication to RKBA
“R” Senator Kirk need to have another stroke.
we shall see. He refused to endorse Feinstein’s latest assault ban bill the other day. so far, so good.
My rep Tim Murphy (R PA-18) gets an A rating with the NRA.
I prefer the GOA http://gunowners.org/
They rate my rep an A.
GO with GOA, they rate Dingy Harry an F-
He’s below a snake.
BTW, GOA gives her an A rating as well...
Good, I’m going to save that GOA link along with the other.
I noticed GOA rated that Communist McDERMOTT with an F- (That’s MINUS). LOL!!
I prefer GOA ratings to NRA ratings. GOA doesn’t pull punches.
For example, GOA rates Harry Reid F-, while the NRA gives him a B.
GOA gives Senaturd Joe Munchkin ('Rat, WV) a "D" rating.
Not terribly accurate - at least for New Jersey.
Frelinghuysen is in no way pro-gun and supports Obama’s anti-gun intitiave, or so I’ve heard.
Lance refused to respond to a letter on the subject I sent him recently.
That light bulb grabber Fred Upton voted to ban "assault" guns back in the day.
Apparently his stripes have not changed.
I can’t believe Lehtman of s florida voted for the old awb.
she is a cuban refugee and should really understand the issue of freedom.
mccain and rubio are in the center column.
mccain is too squishy on rights.
rubio is demonstrating himself to be a water carrier.
