Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Steve Chabot (Ohio-1) for election to the U.S. House of Representatives this November.
"Steve Chabot has earned the NRA-PVF endorsement for his unwavering pro-gun record throughout his career in the U.S. House of Representatives," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "His commitment to preserving our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage makes Steve Chabot the obvious choice for Ohio gun owners."
Chabot cosponsored and voted for legislation to end reckless lawsuits against America's gun manufacturers and legislation to prohibit gun confiscation from law-abiding Americans during states of emergency. He also voted to repeal of the D.C. gun ban/registration statute and restore the right of self-defense to law-abiding residents of our nation's capital.
Steve Chabot signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of our individual right to keep and bear arms and striking down Washington, D.C.'s gun ban in the historic Heller case. In addition, he cosponsored the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity bill, which would extend federal protection of state right-to-carry licenses and permits across the country. He also cosponsored and voted for legislation to force much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
"Steve Chabot's pro-gun voting record and steadfast support for individual gun ownership rights has earned him an "A" rating from the NRA-PVF," Cox continued. "We ask all gun-owners, hunters and NRA members in Ohio's District 1 to vote Steve Chabot for U.S. House of Representatives on November 2nd."
