About Our Grading Scale

We're tough graders.

Without a voting record, even candidates who "talk the talk" perfectly will only receive an A-. That's not a slam, at all. We fully expect these candidates to "walk the walk" in the near future.

Still, A grades are reserved for proven pro-rights candidates -- candidates whose actions, in the legislature or elsewhere -- match their words.

A+ grades are reserved for superstars: gun rights leaders who go beyond saying the right things and voting the right way -- leaders who push the envelope, stand up for what's right, and bring others along with them.

Our grading scale:

A+ Leads the way for gun owners and sportsmen in Minnesota (very few qualify for this grade).
A
A-
A stalwart supporter of Minnesota gun owners and sportsmen.
B+
B
B-
Can be expected to usually support Minnesota gun rights.
C+
C
C-
Not necessarily a passing grade. Indicates a mixed record and/or mixed or weak statements on key issues.
D+
D
D-
Often, but not always, votes and speaks against Second Amendment rights.
F Hostile to Second Amendment civil rights.
F (Provisional) May be hostile to Minnesotans' gun rights: did not complete the GOCRA candidate questionnaire. Our experience is that candidates who do not return surveys may be hiding their positions, and often vote against gun owners.
