NRA-PVF Endorses Lee Terry for U.S. House of Representatives in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Rep. Lee Terry for re-election to the
U.S. House of Representatives in Nebraska's 2nd
Congressional District this November.
"Lee Terry is a steadfast supporter of freedom. He earned the
NRA-PVF endorsement by standing up for our Second Amendment rights
and hunting heritage," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.
"Nebraska's gun owners and hunters appreciate his strong dedication
in the U.S. House of Representatives."
Rep. Terry cosponsored and voted for the District of Columbia
Personal Protection Act, which would repeal the D.C. gun
ban/registration statute and restore the right of self-defense to
law-abiding residents of our nation's capital. He cosponsored and
voted for legislation to end reckless lawsuits against gun
manufacturers and for legislation to prohibit gun confiscation from
law-abiding Americans during states of emergency.
Terry 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
guarantees a fundamental right that applies to all Americans, no
matter where they live, in the McDonald case. In addition,
Rep. Terry cosponsored the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity
amendment, which would extend federal protection of state
right-to-carry licenses and permits across the country, and
legislation to force much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
"Lee Terry's pro-gun voting record and steadfast support for
individual gun ownership rights has earned him an "A" rating and
endorsement from the NRA-PVF," Cox continued. "We ask all Nebraska
gun owners, hunters and NRA members in Nebraska's 2nd
Congressional District to vote Lee Terry for Congress on November
