Fairfax, Va.-The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Rep. Bob Bischoff (D-68) for re-election to the Indiana House of Representatives this November.
Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF stated, "The NRA-PVF is endorsing Bob Bischoff because of his strong support for the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding Indiana gun owners. As author of Indiana's new Emergency Powers and Parking Lot laws, our members in the Hoosier State know they can trust him to protect their rights."
Throughout his tenure in the Indiana House of Representatives, Bob Bischoff has consistently supported the right to keep and bear arms, including: protecting gun owners from being held liable if their firearms are stolen and later used in a crime; establishing Indiana's Lifetime Concealed Firearm Permit - the first of its kind in the United States; signed 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; and authoring Indiana's new Emergency Powers and Parking Lot laws, protecting Hoosiers against firearm confiscations during states of emergency and wrongful termination by employers for locking their firearms in their personal vehicles while at work.
"On November 2, I urge all Indiana NRA members and gun owners in the 68th House District to vote for Bob Bischoff," Cox concluded.
