Bell’s “strong expressions of support for the Second Amendment” result in an
“A” rating from the NRA in her bid for the House District 7 special election.
The Lynda Bell Campaign today announced that she has earned top marks from both the National Rifle Association and the Unified Sportsmen of Florida. Bell has earned an “A” from the NRA and is rated “Pro-Gun” by the Unified Sportsmen of Florida. She is running in the special election for District 7 in the Florida House of Representatives.
“The Constitution is unequivocal about the right to keep and bear arms,” said Bell. “It is critical that any attempt to erode our Second Amendment rights be confronted and stopped so that law-abiding Floridians continue to enjoy the right to defend themselves, their loved ones, and their property. I’m proud and honored to receive the NRA’s top rating, and I look forward to working with them, as well as the Unified Sportsmen of Florida, to protect this cherished and important right.”
Marion Hammer, past NRA President and Executive Director of the Unified Sportsmen of Florida, wrote to Bell that “your strong expressions of support for the Second Amendment and your previous actions along with your responses to our 2018 questionnaire in support of Second Amendment, self-defense, and anti-crime issues” have earned her both organizations’ top ratings.
District 7 was represented by Halsey Beshears from 2012 until earlier this year when he was appointed Secretary of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. The district includes Calhoun, Franklin, Gulf, Jefferson, Lafayette, Liberty, Madison, Taylor, and Wakulla Counties and part of Leon County, where Bell and her husband reside.
