NRA-PVF Endorses Dave Heineman in Nebraska’s Gubernatorial Race
Monday, September 27, 2010
Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Dave Heineman for re-election as
Nebraska Governor this November.
"Dave Heineman strongly supports gun owners and hunters in
Nebraska," said Chris Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "His
commitment to preserving the Second Amendment has earned him an
'A+' rating and the NRA-PVF's endorsement."
Governor Heineman will continue to be a strong voice in fighting
ongoing attempts by anti-gun politicians to dismantle the Second
Amendment. He signed legislation prohibiting municipalities from
passing handgun registration of right-to-carry permit
holders. He also signed legislation protecting shooting
ranges in Nebraska, as well as a bill that created a mentored
hunting program and lowered the minimum hunting age to preserve our
hunting heritage. In addition, Heineman publicly stated his support
for passage of Castle Doctrine legislation to protect the
fundamental right of self-defense for Nebraskans.
"On November 2nd, I urge all Nebraska NRA members and gun owners
to vote for the candidate with a proven record who will stand up
for their gun rights - Dave Heineman," Cox concluded.
