NRA-PVF Endorses John Waterman for Re-Election in Indiana's 39th Senate District
Friday, April 23, 2010
Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is pleased to endorse State Senator John Waterman
(R-39) for re-election in Indiana's Republican Primary on May
"The NRA is synonymous with freedom, and Hoosiers in the 39th
Senate District could not have a better friend than John Waterman,"
said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "We are pleased to endorse
John, because we know he will continue to fight for and protect the
Second Amendment for all law-abiding gun owners in Indiana."
Throughout his tenure in the General Assembly, Sen. Waterman has
maintained a 100% pro-Second Amendment record, both in Indiana and
across the country. In 2009, John Waterman participated in two
pro-gun amicus briefs supporting the McDonald v. Chicago lawsuit to
overturn Chicago's gun ban before the Seventh Circuit Court of
Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. In 2010, Sen. Waterman
voted to close access to Indiana's concealed carry permit database,
to prevent firearm confiscations during states of emergency and to
enact parking lot protections for Hoosier employees.
Senator John Waterman's steadfast support for individual gun
ownership rights earned him an "A+," the highest possible rating
awarded by NRA-PVF.
"It's up to gun owners to vote for freedom on May 4th,"
continued Cox. "Hoosiers value their right to own firearms, and
John Waterman is the right man to represent them."
