Plymouth Districts Senators and House Reps with good ratings and endorsements from the NRA

This page includes the grades given by the NRA and GOAL (Gun Owner’s Action League the MA affiliate of the NRA) to state Senators and State Reps in Plymouth Districts.  We are also working on a list for our neighbors in Bristol.

If you don’t know who your state legislators are, check here.

We did NOT include legislators with poor ratings from the NRA.  Endorsements usually require an application (eg. asking for the endorsement) and result in notifications of the endorsement made to the organizations members. Some endorsements include direct donations and some include the organization soliciting donations from it’s members.

Note, there are some Democrats on this list of mostly Republicans. Two of these Democrats are in leadership positions.   See more about gun legislation, ratings, articles, postings etc on our “Guns.” page.

Plymouth District Senators
with good ratings from GOAL and the NRA

As a Senator, anything above a zero indicates some support of NRA/GOAL advocated legislation. Senators votes have more power based on the number of Senators vs House Reps. Do you see an improvement in NRA/GOAL scores? Ask them “why?”
