NRA-PVF Endorses Alaska Governor Sean Parnell for Re-election

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Alaska Governor Sean Parnell for re-election in the state's November 2nd general election.

Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF stated, "The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund is endorsing Governor Parnell because of his unequivocal support for the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding Alaska gun owners. Sean Parnell has earned the support of the NRA-PVF. Our members in Alaska know they can trust him to protect their gun rights."

As governor, Parnell signed into law important legislation to protect the rights of Alaska gun owners, including: a bill to require the notifying of permit holders when their permits are about to expire and allowing permit holders to retain their permits if they move out of state; as well as legislation to clarify that individuals who have been released from state supervision and who have had their rights restored under existing Alaska law have full restoration of their Second Amendment rights.

Parnell has earned an "A" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF for his strong commitment to protecting our Second Amendment rights as Governor of Alaska and during his service in the Alaska Legislature.

"On November 2nd, I urge all Alaska NRA members and gun owners to vote for the candidate with a proven track record who will stand up for their gun rights -- Sean Parnell," Cox concluded.
