Monday, April 26, 2010
Fairfax, Va. - Today the National Rifle Association Political
Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is announcing its endorsement of U.S. Rep.
Bob Inglis (R-SC) for re-election in South Carolina's Republican
primary election on June 8th.
Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF stated, "The National Rifle
Association is proud to lend our support to Congressman Inglis
because he is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms
of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in South
During his time in Congress, Rep. Inglis has demonstrated a
proven and consistent commitment to South Carolinians' Second
Amendment rights by voting for legislation enacted into law to curb
bogus lawsuits against gun manufacturers and to prohibit gun
confiscation during states of emergency. He has also helped to
restore self-defense rights in our nation's capital by cosponsoring
and voting for the D.C. Personal Protection Act and the Second
Amendment Enforcement Act, as well as signing the pro-gun
congressional amicus brief to the Supreme Court supporting our
individual right to keep and bear arms in the Heller case. Most
recently, Rep. Inglis signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief
stating that the Second Amendment applies to state and local
governments in the McDonald case, which is now before the Supreme
Court. He also cosponsored legislation to force reform at the
federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and to
allow reciprocity between states for concealed carry.
"I'm very grateful for the support and endorsement of the NRA,"
Rep. Inglis said. "I support the Second Amendment, and I value the
NRA's commitment to constitutional freedom. The Constitution is the
place where we protect liberty by law. The NRA is a guardian of
that law-enshrined liberty."
Congressman Inglis has been one of the NRA's closest allies and
bravest pro-gun advocates during his combined six terms in the U.S.
House of Representatives, ranging all the way back to 1993. Rep.
Inglis' support for the Second Amendment in the U.S. House has
earned him an "A" rating and the endorsement from NRA-PVF.
"On June 8th, I urge all South Carolina NRA members and gun
owners to re-elect Bob Inglis to South Carolina's 4th Congressional
District," Cox concluded.
