BALTIMORE (AP) - The National Rifle Association has downgraded Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan's ranking and is refusing to endorse him.

The move comes after the Republican governor signed several pieces of gun control legislation.

The Baltimore Sun reports that NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said Saturday that the organization now rates Hogan a "C" on protecting the rights of gun owners.

Four years ago, the NRA rated Hogan as an "A-." Baker said the NRA will not endorse Hogan this election as it did during his successful 2014 run for governor.

The National Park Service has embarked on a 3 to 5 year plan, in collaboration with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the National Forest Service, to remove all mountain goats from Olympic National Park in Washington state.

As part of that plan, more than 75 mountain goats arrived in Washington's North Cascade mountains by refrigerated truck in recent weeks, before being transferred to helicopters for the ride of their lives.
