Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing State Representative Randy Truitt (R-26) for re-election this November.
"Randy Truitt's support for preserving our Second Amendment freedoms has earned him the NRA-PVF endorsement," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "Indiana gun owners and hunters appreciate his commitment to protecting their right to keep and bear arms.
During his tenure in the Indiana House of Representatives, Randy Truitt has consistently supported Second Amendment rights, including: joining a pro-gun "friend of the court" brief in McDonald v. Chicago, supporting the position that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans; voting to protect the privacy of concealed firearm permit holders; preventing local municipalities from banning or confiscating firearms during a state of emergency; and prohibiting employers from firing employees who lock their firearm in their personal vehicles while at work.
Representative Truitt's commitment to preserving our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage has earned him an A- rating and the endorsement of the NRA-PVF.
"Hoosiers value their Second Amendment freedoms, and Randy Truitt is the clear choice to represent them," Cox concluded. "We ask all Indiana gun-owners and hunters in the 26th House District to re-elect Representative Randy Truitt on November 2."
