(Springfield, VA) Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to announce the endorsement of Randy Brogdon for Governor of Oklahoma.
"State Senator Brogdon is a leader in protecting Second Amendment rights and in the battle against federal intrusion in Oklahoma," said Tim Macy, Vice-Chairman of Gun Owners of America.
"Senator Brogdon stood up for states' rights when he opposed the 2005 Real ID Act, a law that would have compromised the privacy of gun owners," said Mr. Macy. "He has stood up and supported every pro-Second Amendment bill that came up in the State Senate, including several votes for implementing the castle doctrine in Oklahoma.
"This year Senator Brogdon has authored one of the brightest and boldest pro-gun bills ever introduced in the Sooner State. The bill is modeled after Montana’s Firearms Freedom Act. It says that any firearm made in Oklahoma and kept in the state is exempt from federal regulation."
GOA also points out Sen. Brogdon’s clear understanding of the Second Amendment’s role in a free society. "I am one of the few elected officials,” says Brogdon, “who truly understands what the Second Amendment is all about. It’s not about a turkey shoot, or a quail hunt, it’s really not even about me being able to protect myself from you, or vice versa. The Second Amendment states that you and I have the right to bear arms in the event that the federal government gets out of control."
Brogdon, having spent 30 years owning and operating his own business in Oklahoma, has learned the value of persistence and hard work. He is the father of two grown sons and has been married to his wife, Donna, for 37 years. He has served in the State Senate since 2002, and has worked tirelessly to ensure the prosperity and sovereignty for the people of Oklahoma.
"Gun Owners of America is proud to support Randy Brogdon for Governor, and encourages all Oklahoma gun owners and sportsmen to get behind the Brogdon campaign as a volunteer and with financial support," said Mr. Macy.
