Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing State Representative Tom Knollman
(R-55) for re-election this November.
"Tom Knollman is the gun owners' and hunters' choice in this
race," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "We are pleased to
endorse Tom for another term because we know he will continue to
protect the rights of all law-abiding gun owners in the Hoosier
Throughout his tenure in the State House of Representatives, Tom
Knollman has consistently supported the Second Amendment,
including: establishing a hunter apprentice license; signing two
pro-gun "friend of the court" briefs in McDonald v.
Chicago, supporting the position that the Second Amendment
guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans;
and voting for Indiana's new Gun Permit Privacy Act and the
Emergency Powers and Parking Lot laws, which protect citizens
against firearm confiscations during states of emergency and
wrongful termination by their employers for locking a firearm in
their personal vehicle while at work.
Representative Knollman's dedication to preserving our Second
Amendment rights and hunting heritage has earned him an "A" rating
and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.
"We ask all Indiana gun-owners and hunters in the
55th House District to re-elect Representative Tom
Knollman on November 2", concluded Cox.
