“I am proud to have earned the NRA’s endorsement,” Garrett said in the release. “I have voted for and carried challenging pro-gun legislation. Not only have I voted correctly on every gun bill over my five years in the senate, I have stood without fear and carried pro-gun legislation when others have refused.”
