NRA-PVF Endorses Pat Tiberi for U.S. House of Representatives in Ohio's 12th Congressional District
Thursday, September 09, 2010
Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Pat Tiberi for re-election to the U.S.
House of Representatives for District 12 in Ohio this November.
"The NRA-PVF is endorsing Pat Tiberi because he is a staunch
defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun
owners, hunters and sportsmen in Ohio and across America," said
Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.
Pat Tiberi 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 voted to repeal of the D.C. gun
ban/registration statute and restore the right of self-defense to
law-abiding residents of our nation's capital.
Tiberi 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, Tiberi 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.
"Pat Tiberi is a strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts by
anti-gun politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment," Cox
concluded. "We ask all Ohio gun-owners and hunters to elect Pat
Tiberi to the U.S. House on November 2nd." Chris W. Cox is NRA's
