Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Mary Fallin for Oklahoma Governor this November.
"The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund supports Mary Fallin because she is a champion and staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding Oklahoma gun owners," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "As a Congresswoman, Mary has worked to preserve and protect our gun rights, and I know she is committed to continuing this work as governor."
During her time in Congress, Mary Fallin has supported many pro-gun efforts, including signing pro-gun congressional "friend of the court" briefs in both the Heller and McDonald cases, stating that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual right that protects all Americans. Fallin opposes any effort to reenact the Clinton semi-auto ban. She voted in favor of allowing law-abiding citizens to carry in national parks and wildlife refuges and voted to protect access to federally-owned or administered lands for hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational shooting.
Fallin's voting record in Congress and her support for the Second Amendment have earned her an "A" rating and the endorsement of the NRA-PVF.
"On November 2nd, I urge all Oklahoma NRA members, hunters and gun owners to vote Mary Fallin for Governor," Cox concluded.
