Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Massachusetts State Representative Jeff Perry (R-Sandwich) for election to the U.S. House of Representatives in the September 14 Republican Primary.
"Jeff Perry's strong commitment to preserving our hunting and shooting heritage has earned him the NRA-PVF's endorsement," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "Jeff was a proven leader on gun owners' and sportsmen's rights in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and I know he will continue to fight for and protect the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding gun owners at the federal level."
Perry has demonstrated a proven commitment to our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage. He co-sponsored the Mass Firearm Regulation Reform Legislation to eliminate the Commonwealth's current draconian firearms regulations and supported Senate Bill 2367, the most important set of firearm law reforms since the passage of Massachusetts' worst in the nation gun laws. In addition, he supported the Precision Sports Legislative Reform Bill, which would protect the rights of target shooters in Massachusetts, and voted for a bill to reduce firearm license fees.
Perry's steadfast support for individual gun ownership rights earned him an "A" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.
"Gun owners in Massachusetts value their Second Amendment freedoms, and Jeff Perry is the clear choice to represent them," Cox concluded. "We ask all gun-owners, hunters and NRA members in Massachusetts' Tenth Congressional District to vote Jeff Perry for Congress on September 14."
