NRA-PVF Endorses Michael McCaul for U.S. House of Representatives in Texas’ 10th Congressional District
Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle
Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Michael
McCaul for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in
Texas' 10th Congressional District.
"Michael McCaul's steadfast commitment to preserving our Second
Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage has earned him the NRA-PVF
endorsement," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "We can trust
Mike to continue fighting for the Second Amendment rights of all
law-abiding gun owners in Texas and across the country."
McCaul has consistently supported gun rights for law-abiding
Americans. He signed the pro-gun congressional "friend of the
court" brief in the 2008 Heller case, supporting the Second
Amendment as an individual right and striking down the gun ban in
our nation's capital. He also signed the pro-gun congressional
"friend of the court" brief in the McDonald case, supporting the
position that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right
that protects all Americans.
McCaul cosponsored and voted for the National Right-to-Carry
Reciprocity amendment, as well as legislation to repeal the D.C.
gun ban and restore the right of self-defense to law-abiding
residents of our nation's capital. He also cosponsored and voted
for both the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act that
prevents attempts to bankrupt the American gun industry through
bogus lawsuits and legislation to force much-needed reform of the
federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
(BATFE). Additionally, McCaul voted to prohibit gun confiscation
during states of emergency and to allow carry license or permit
holders to carry and transport firearms for self-defense in
national parks and wildlife refuges.
Michael McCaul's unwavering commitment to preserving our Second
Amendment rights and hunting heritage have earned him an "A" rating
and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.
"On November 2nd, I urge all Texas NRA Members and gun owners in
the 10th District to vote Michael McCaul for Congress," Cox
