Pro-Second Amendment organization Bama Carry has endorsed U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) for Alabama's open U.S. Senate seat, according to a release.
The group, which offered the grassroots push for the Alabama Legislature's passage of Constitutional carry earlier this year, said Brooks had a superior record over his opponent, former Business Council of Alabama (BCA) President and CEO Katie Britt.
"As you know, it is imperative, now more than ever, to support candidates with an unwavering dedication to protecting the Second Amendment," the announcement said. "As we analyzed the record of the two candidates in the runoff, there is only one candidate with a true history of defending and fighting for our Second Amendment rights: Mo Brooks. Therefore, we formally endorse Congressman Brooks for U.S. Senate. In addition to our support and that of the NRA, Mo has also been backed by the National Association for Gun Rights and the Gun Owners of America. He received A+ ratings from Gun Owners of America and the NRA every single year he's been in Congress. For Mo, his proven track record of defending the Second Amendment cannot be questioned."
The group was critical of Britt's attacks on Brooks and association with the BCA.
"While Katie Britt claims to support our right to keep and bear arms, her record and public statements paint a very different picture," the release said. "Katie Britt attacked Mo Brooks for voting against Nancy Pelosi's National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Britt claims Mo voted against our military, when in reality he voted to kill multiple far-left provisions that Socialists democrats added INCLUDING red flag laws that allow the government to confiscate a person's guns without due process. Katie Britt said she would have voted for this version of the bill that included this obvious infringement of our Second Amendment rights. Furthermore, the Business Council of Alabama in 2013, which Britt proudly joined [afterward], previously opposed a bill that extended Second Amendment protections in the state.”
