Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Mike Ross for re-election to the U.S.
House of Representatives in Arkansas' 4th Congressional District
"The NRA-PVF is endorsing Mike Ross because he is a staunch
defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun
owners, hunters and sportsmen in Arkansas and across America," said
Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "His commitment to preserving
the Second Amendment has earned him an 'A+' rating from the
Mike Ross cosponsored and voted for legislation to end reckless
lawsuits against America's gun manufacturers and legislation to
prohibit gun confiscation from law-abiding Americans during states
of emergency. He also sponsored and voted for legislation to repeal
the D.C. gun ban/registration statute and restore the right of
self-defense to law-abiding residents of our nation's capital.
Ross signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief to the U.S.
Supreme Court in support of our 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, Ross cosponsored the National Right-to-Carry
Reciprocity bill, 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.
"Mike Ross is a strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts by
anti-gun politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment," Cox
concluded. "We ask all gun owners and hunters in Arkansas' 4th
District to vote Mike Ross for Congress on November 2nd."
