STATEMENT FROM CHRIS W. COX, CHAIRMAN NRA POLITICAL VICTORY FUND CONGRATULATING SENATOR-ELECT SCOTT BROWN ON HIS ELECTION TO THE U.S. SENATE
Tuesday, January 19, 2010
On behalf of the 4 million members of the National Rifle
Association, we would like to offer congratulations to
Senator-elect Scott Brown on his hard-fought and well-deserved
victory in the Massachusetts U.S. Senate Special Election. We would
like to thank all gun owners, hunters and NRA members in the Bay
State for seizing this unique opportunity to elect a supporter of
our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms to the U.S.
Scott Brown's victory is a stunning defeat for gun control
extremists, including the Massachusetts-based "Stop Handgun
Violence", who spent significant manpower in an unsuccessful
attempt to try and turn out anti-gun voters for Martha Coakley.
Their crass attempts to misrepresent Brown's record - a record that
in stark contrast to Coakley's, has been tough on criminals yet
supportive of the rights of law-abiding Massachusetts gun owners -
Again, the NRA congratulates Senator-elect Brown on his
outstanding and historic victory.
