Where to find Q&A for NRA/TSRA voter guide?

So apparently I have a new state representative, Tom Oliverson.

I have been attempting to find out more about how he has answered 2A questions before I begin "pestering" him about HB 560. I am failing to do so. Are the candidates answers to voter guide questions made public? The TSRA has endorsed him, but I would like to know more about his stances.

He appears to be pro-carry according to his website, but I'm still wanting to dig in deeper if possible for my own curiosity:
2nd Amendment Rights

A staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, Dr. Oliverson is a firm believer in both campus carry and open carry in the State of Texas. He often says, “gun-free zones promote tragedy rather than prevent it,” and “gun-free zones should be renamed ‘defenseless victim zones.’” Dr. Oliverson strongly believes in a citizen’s right to defend themselves and others, and will work to eliminate restrictions on where a law-abiding citizen may carry a firearm legally. He will also oppose attempts by federal or state authorities to restrict the ownership of firearms through selective ammunition, magazine capacity, or so called “assault weapon bans.”

Edit: I've gone ahead and started pestering him anyway, but still want to read up on him some more if I can.

The NRA rated him "AQ". That means he answered the questionnaire well. ... -Guide.pdf
