Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Bobby Schilling for election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Illinois' 17th Congressional District this November.
"The NRA-PVF is supporting Bobby Schilling because we know he will be a staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in Illinois and across America," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.
Bobby Schilling's commitment to preserving the Second Amendment has earned him an "AQ" rating and the endorsement of the NRA-PVF.
Schilling supports national right-to-carry reciprocity and efforts to reform the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. He also opposes reenacting the Clinton gun and magazine ban and believes sportsmen should have access to federally-owned or administered lands for hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational shooting.
"On November 2nd, I urge all Illinois NRA Members and gun owners in the 17th District to vote Bobby Schilling for Congress," Cox concluded.
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.
