Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Michael McCaul for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Texas' 10th Congressional District.
"Michael McCaul's steadfast commitment to preserving our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage has earned him the NRA-PVF endorsement," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "We can trust Mike to continue fighting for the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding gun owners in Texas and across the country."
McCaul has consistently supported gun rights for law-abiding Americans. He signed the pro-gun congressional "friend of the court" brief in the 2008 Heller case, supporting the Second Amendment as an individual right and striking down the gun ban in our nation's capital. He also signed the pro-gun congressional "friend of the court" brief in the McDonald case, supporting the position that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans.
McCaul cosponsored and voted for the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity amendment, as well as legislation to repeal the D.C. gun ban and restore the right of self-defense to law-abiding residents of our nation's capital. He also cosponsored and voted for both the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act that prevents attempts to bankrupt the American gun industry through bogus lawsuits and legislation to force much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). Additionally, McCaul voted to prohibit gun confiscation during states of emergency and to allow carry license or permit holders to carry and transport firearms for self-defense in national parks and wildlife refuges.
Michael McCaul's unwavering commitment to preserving our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage have earned him an "A" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.
"On November 2nd, I urge all Texas NRA Members and gun owners in the 10th District to vote Michael McCaul for Congress," Cox concluded.
