Friday, April 23, 2010
Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is pleased to endorse State Representative Tom
Knollman (R-55) for re-election in Indiana's Republican Primary on
"Representative Tom Knollman is the gun owners' choice for
Indiana's 55th House District," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of
NRA-PVF. "An NRA Life Member himself, Tom Knollman is a rock-solid
supporter of the Second Amendment and will stand up for the rights
of gun owners and all freedom-loving Hoosiers."
Throughout his tenure in the Indiana State House, Tom Knollman
has maintained an uncompromising commitment to the Second
Amendment, both in Indiana and around the country. In 2009, Rep.
Knollman participated as a signatory 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.
Most recently, Rep. Knollman supported legislation closing
access to Indiana's concealed carry permit database, preventing
local governments from confiscating firearms from law-abiding
citizens during states of emergency and enacting parking lot
protections for gun-owning Hoosier employees.
Rep. Tom Knollman's steadfast support for individual gun
ownership rights earned him an "A+" rating and endorsement by
"It's up to gun owners to vote for freedom on May 4th,"
concluded Cox. "I urge gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in
Indiana's 55th District to re-elect Tom Knollman."
