Breitbart News’s Second Amendment columnist AWR Hawkins won the 2017 Journalist of the Year Award on September 30 at the 32nd Annual Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Dallas, Texas.
The GRPC is hosted by the Second Amendment Foundation.
Hawkins received Journalist of the Year in 2015, Gun Rights Defender of the Year in 2016, and now Journalist of the Year again.
Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb commented on Hawkins’ award, saying, “AWR Hawkins broke more important Second Amendment stories than any other journalist this past year. And those news stories had a major effect on gun rights.”

Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow commented on Hawkins’ award, saying, “Dr. Hawkins is an ideal journalist. He’s a 24/7 news junkie, he knows his beat better than anyone, and he’s a great team player. I’m proud of him and I’m glad to see his work continues to get recognition.”
