hunting heritage," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRAâ"PVF.
Jeff Duncan's steadfast support for individual gun ownership
rights earned him an "A" rating and endorsement by NRA-PVF.
In response to his endorsement Congressman Jeff Duncan said,
"Today I am honored to have the endorsement of the National Rifle
Association. As an avid hunter, outdoor enthusiast, and life member
of the NRA, I understand the importance of protecting the right to
keep and bear arms. In the South Carolina House, I have fought
against liberal special interest groups wanting to rollback Second
Amendment protections. For my proven track record the NRA has
endorsed my candidacy. I look forward to representing the 3rd
District in Washington and taking the fight to those who aim to
take our Second Amendment rights away in D.C. just as I have in
Throughout his tenure in the South Carolina state House, Jeff
Duncan has maintained a perfect pro-gun voting record and
cosponsored several key pieces of legislation including: Castle
doctrine; repeal of South Carolina's one-handgun-a-month law;
closing access to South Carolina's concealed carry permit database;
and reforming South Carolina's Right-to-Carry reciprocity laws.
Duncan also voted in favor of preventing local governments from
confiscating firearms from law-abiding citizens during states of
emergency; and a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to
hunt and fish for all South Carolinians.
"The choice is clear for NRA members, gun owners, hunters and
sportsmen in South Carolina's 3rd Congressional District,"
concluded Cox. "Vote for Jeff Duncan on June 22nd."
