Brownback gets endorsement of Kansas gun group

The Associated PressJuly 17, 2014 

— The Kansas State Rifle Association has endorsed Gov. Sam Brownback's re-election and is calling the Republican a strong champion of gun-ownership rights.

The association cited Brownback's support for multiple measures since taking office in 2011.

He's signed legislation nullifying local gun restrictions and allowing people with concealed carry permits to bring their weapons into more public buildings.

He also signed legislation declaring that the federal government has no authority to regulate guns manufactured, sold and kept only in Kansas.

Association President Patricia Stoneking posted an announcement Wednesday evening on her Facebook page. Brownback campaign spokesman John Milburn said he's pleased.

Democratic challenger Paul Davis' campaign did not immediately respond.

Brownback faces Wichita business owner Jennifer Winn in the Aug. 5 GOP primary, and she said she strongly supports gun rights.
