Fairfax, Va. - Today the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is announcing its endorsement of John Boozman for election to the U.S. Senate this November.
"The NRA-PVF is proud to endorse John Boozman because he is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in Arkansas," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "Because of his solid and consistent pro-gun support, John Boozman has earned an 'A' rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF."
Rep. Boozman has demonstrated a proven commitment to Second Amendment rights by cosponsoring National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity legislation and authoring the Secure Access to Firearms Enhancement Act. He voted for the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act that prevents attempts to bankrupt the American gun industry through bogus lawsuits and to prohibit gun confiscation during states of emergency. He also voted to restore Second Amendment freedoms in our nation's capital through the Second Amendment Enforcement Act and voted in favor of allowing commercial airline pilots to be armed in the cockpit. Finally, Boozman voted last year to allow concealed carry permit holders to carry and transport firearms for self-defense in national parks and wildlife refuges.
"On November 2nd, I urge all Arkansas NRA members and gun owners to vote John Boozman for U.S. Senate," Cox concluded.
