GOCRA
Candidate Ratings 2014

During election cycles, GOCRA evaluates Minnesota candidates to determine their positions on issues of importance to gun owners, and all Second Amendment supporters. We examine voting records of incumbents, send questionnaires to all candidates, and review candidates' public statements and actions. We use this research to produce candidate grades below.

To find your district and polling place, please visit the Minnesota Secretary of State's poll finder web site at http://pollfinder.sos.state.mn.us/

Is this information valuable to you? Please consider supporting GOCRA with a membership today.

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.
