MD Democrats Release Hogan’s (Likely) Answers to 2014 NRA Questionnaire

Apr 20, 2018

Annapolis, MD – Larry Hogan has been refusing to release his answers to the National Rifle Association (NRA) questionnaire that earned him his A-minus NRA rating, so the Maryland Democratic Party is releasing them for him. 

“We don’t need to see Governor Hogan’s answers to the NRA questionnaire,” said Maryland Democratic Party Chair Kathleen Matthews. “His enthusiasm for gun ownership over violence prevention is evident from his statements over the years and record of opposing common sense gun safety laws.”

The release comes as students in Maryland participate in the #NationalSchoolWalkouttoday to demand action to prevent gun violence on the anniversary of the Columbine shooting.  Maryland students are also planning to hold Hogan accountable for his ties to the NRA and his weak record on keeping Marylanders safe from gun violence is years.

Just last month, hours after the tragic shooting at Great Mills High school, Hogan cynically attempted to attack Democrats in an effort to divert attention from his record of opposition to gun safety measures and his refusal to release his answers to a National Rifle Association questionnaire thatearned him his A-minus NRA rating, an NRA endorsement, and thousands in campaign money.

If the 2018 legislative session was any indication, Hogan will keep attempting to shape-shift on guns, so let’s set the record straight:



  • Larry Hogan opposed and ridiculed as “silly” Democrats’ efforts to prevent individuals on the terrorist watch list from buying guns.
  • Larry Hogan accepts $4,000 in campaign donations from the NRA 


  • Hogan attempted to appoint an extremist gun advocate to the Handgun Permit Review Board.
  • Larry Hogan opposed Democratic legislation to ban guns on college campuses.
  • Larry Hogan opposed Democratic legislation to prevent convicted domestic abusers from owning guns.
