Chart: Gun groups rate U.S. senators

Here is a chart of the NRA and Gun Owners of America ratings for all 100 members of the new Senate in 2013, via The Fix. For a rundown of Scott Brown's record, go here (MA-Sen: Scott Brown (R), The Gun Lobby's Favorite Senator). He got $7,000 from Smith and Wesson alone. He may end up back in the Senate, so it's worth a look.

As John Dean tweeted, the "Double Fs looks great." We need to continue to replace Blue Dogs with Progressives, if that's even possible.

Starting next month, more than half the Senate will have served one term or less. And because gun issues haven’t really come up very often in recent years, many of those members have yet to build substantial voting records. That suggests there could be some surprises.
