Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Pat Meehan for election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District this November.
"Pat Meehan will be a staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in Pennsylvania and across America," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.
Meehan believes the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to own and use firearms. He supports national right-to-carry reciprocity and efforts to reform the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Meehan 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.
Pat Meehan's commitment to preserving the Second Amendment has earned him an "AQ" rating and the endorsement of the NRA-PVF.
"On November 2nd, I urge all Pennsylvania NRA Members and gun owners to vote Pat Meehan for Congress," Cox concluded.
