NRA-PVF Endorses John McCain for U.S. Senate
Thursday, June 03, 2010
Fairfax, Va.-- The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) in
the August 24 Republican primary.
"John McCain has steadfastly voted against every gun and
ammunition ban in Congress," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of
NRA-PVF. "This along with his commitment to preserving our hunting
heritage has earned him the NRA-PVF's endorsement."
Sen. McCain voted to end reckless lawsuits against gun
manufacturers and to prohibit gun confiscation from law-abiding
Americans during states of emergency. He is leading the fight to
restore self-defense rights in Washington, D.C. through his
introduction of the Second Amendment Enforcement Act.
McCain signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief to the U.S.
Supreme Court in support of the individual right to keep and bear
arms in the historic Heller case. He also signed the congressional
amicus brief stating that the Second Amendment applies to all
Americans, no matter where they live, in the McDonald case
currently before the Court.
Sen. McCain's consistent opposition to the failed Clinton
semi-auto ban, dating back to the original votes in 1993, has made
him a friend to gun owners across the country. He continues to be a
strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts by the United Nations to
dismantle the Second Amendment.
Cox continued, "We ask all Arizona gun-owners, hunters and NRA
members to vote for John McCain in the U.S. Senate republican
primary on August 24th."
Established in 1871, the National
Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's
group. Four million members strong, NRA continues its mission to
uphold Second Amendment rights and to advocate enforcement of
existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The
Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and
training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the
