NRA-PVF Endorses Tom Dermody for Re-Election in Indiana's 20th House District

Friday, April 23, 2010

Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse State Representative Tom Dermody (R-20) for re-election in Indiana's Republican Primary on May 4th.

"The NRA is synonymous with freedom, and Hoosiers in the 20th House District have a solid friend in Tom Dermody," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "We are pleased to endorse Tom, because we know he will continue to fight for and protect the Second Amendment for all law-abiding Hoosiers."

During his short tenure in the General Assembly, Tom Dermody has maintained a 100% pro-Second Amendment record. Most recently, Rep. Dermody voted to close access to Indiana's concealed carry permit database, to prevent firearm confiscations of law-abiding citizens during states of emergency and to enact parking lot protections for Hoosier employees.

Representative Tom Dermody's steadfast support for individual gun ownership rights earned him an "A" rating and endorsement by NRA-PVF.

"It's up to gun owners to vote for freedom in the May 4th primary," continued Cox. "Hoosiers value their right to own firearms, and Tom Dermody is the right man to represent them."

Chris W. Cox is NRA's chief lobbyist. He also serves as chairman of NRA-PVF. The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund is responsible for political candidate rankings. These are based on candidate voting records, public statements and responses to NRA-PVF questionnaires.
