Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing U.S. Congressman Dan Boren (D-OK) for re-election in Oklahoma's Democratic primary election on July 27th.
"Congressman Dan Boren has always been, and continues to be, a rock-solid supporter of the Second Amendment. Gun owners and hunters in Oklahoma's 2nd Congressional District can count on him to continue to stand up for their rights," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.
As a member of Congress, Dan Boren has proven his steadfast commitment to the Second Amendment, both in Oklahoma and around the country. Congressman Boren has voted to allow law-abiding permit holders to carry in national parks and refuges; protect hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational shooting on public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management; prevent the confiscation of firearms from law-abiding citizens during states of emergency; and restore Second Amendment rights within the home for self-protection purposes.
Congressman Dan Boren's steadfast support for individual gun ownership rights earned him an "A+" rating and endorsement by NRA-PVF.
"The choice is clear for NRA members and gun owners in Oklahoma's 2nd Congressional District," concluded Cox. "Dan Boren is the best person to serve them. I ask every NRA member, hunter and gun owner to vote for Dan Boren on July 27th."
Chris W. Cox is executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. 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.
