NRA-PVF Endorses Ron Johnson for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Ron Johnson for election to the U.S.
Senate in Wisconsin this November.
"We can count on Ron Johnson to defend the Second Amendment
freedoms of Wisconsin's law-abiding gun owners, hunters and
sportsmen," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.
Ron Johnson's commitment to preserving the Second Amendment has
earned him an "AQ" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.
Johnson supports national right-to-carry reciprocity and efforts
to reform the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
He also opposes reenacting the Clinton gun and magazine ban and
believes sportsmen should have access to federally owned or
administered lands for hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational
shooting. Johnson has also vowed to vote against anti-gun
Supreme Court nominees.
"Ron Johnson will be a strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts
by anti-gun politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment," Cox
concluded. "We ask all Wisconsin gun-owners and hunters to vote Ron
Johnson for U.S. Senate on November 2nd."
