(El Cajon) The Bill Wells for Assembly campaign today announces a significant endorsement from the National Rifle Association (NRA). The NRA has nearly 4 million members nationwide with thousands residing in East County. Since its inception in 1871 the NRA has been dedicated to firearm education and the protection of the Second Amendment.
Bill Wells received an “A” rating by the National Rifle Association for his dedication to gun owners’ rights. Wells opposes the disastrous proposals coming from Sacramento to restrict gun rights, and instead supports better availability of concealed weapons permits.
“The NRA endorsement is a great honor. I have owned firearms for protection and recreation most of my life, and owe a debt to the hard work of NRA and its members over the years to protect our right to do so. As an NRA member I am committed to defending our Right to Bear Arms when I get to Sacramento.” Said Mayor Pro Tem Bill Wells.
Bill Wells is running for the 77th Assembly District to succeed Joel Anderson in the East County Assembly seat. The NRA joins a long list of financial supporters and endorsers including the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, the California Republican Assembly, the California Pro-Life Council, the California Dental Association, California Medical Association, and the National Electrical Contractors’ Association, among others.
The 77th Assembly district includes the communities of: Alpine, Borrego Springs, Bostonia, Casa de Oro – Mount Helix, Crest, El Cajon, Granite Hills, Harbison Canyon, Jamul, La Mesa, Lakeside, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, San Diego, San Diego Country Estates, Santee and Winter Gardens.
