2014 General Grades

by NH Firearms Coalition on October 24, 2014

The NHFC is pleased to offer this Election Guide for U.S. Senate, Congress, NH Governor, Executive Council, State Senate and Representative races.

These grades are the result of each candidate’s answers to an extensive questionnaire and any available voting records. In addition, we our grade may also use any other reliable information regarding a candidate’s views on Second Amendment issues, such as a downgrade for public support of other anti-gun candidates. Examples of the candidate surveys can be found on our website.

The NHFC, Inc. hopes that you will find this information useful when you vote in our state’s General Elections on November 4th.
