Consolidated List with “Common Ground” Rating
How the ratings were calculated:
The “common ground” rating is calculated based on candidate alignment with six positions held by a majority of those who do, and do not, own guns (data from non-partisan polls.)
An “A” rating indicates the candidate supports all six “common ground” positions. A “B” rating indicates the candidate supports five of six positions. “No Rating” means the candidate did not return our candidate information request, despite repeated contacts.
Here are the common ground issues:
- A background check for every gun purchase
- Minimum age for gun purchase 21
- Ban “bump stocks”
- Enact Emergency Risk Protection Order legislation
- Don’t arm teachers
- Require permit for gun concealed carry
