Hirsh Singh on Gun Control
If they take AR-15 rifles, will cell phones be next?
If those in power can take AR-15 rifles away from everyone because a few criminals use these tools in their pursuits, then how can we guarantee our cell phones, cars and trucks won't be next?
More Americans die annually from texting and driving than
by those who use AR-15 rifles. What do we do about your automobile? Every 50 minutes, someone is killed by a drunk driver. What about school vehicles, since more people are killed annually by them than by AR-15 rifles?

Enact reciprocity between states to own & carry firearms
The Second Amendment guarantees our constitutional right to own firearms, carry them how we choose and use them in defense of ourselves and our loved ones. Congress must affirm these rights by enacting National Reciprocity legislation and ensure our
constitutional rights are not abridged at state lines. Judges must fully acknowledge in no uncertain terms that our Second Amendment protects an individual's right to keep and bear arms -- without compromise.

Singh scores 86% by NRA on pro-gun rights policies
While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly three million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs.
The following ratings are based on lifetime voting records on gun issues and the results of a questionaire sent to all Congressional candidates; the NRA assigned a letter grade (with A+ being the highest and F being the lowest).
What the Grades Mean:

- A+: A legislator with not only an excellent voting record on all critical NRA issues, but who has also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.
- A: Solidly pro-gun candidate including voting record.
- AQ: A pro-gun candidate whose rating is based solely on the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and who does not have a voting record.
- B: A generally pro-gun candidate; may have opposed some pro-gun reform in the past.
- C: A candidate with a mixed record or positions on gun related issues, who may oppose some pro-gun positions.
- D: An anti-gun candidate who usually supports restrictive gun control legislation. Regardless of public statements, can usually be counted on to vote wrong on key issues.
- F: True enemy of gun owners' rights. A consistent anti-gun candidate.
- ?: Refused to answer the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire, often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners' rights.
