Fairfax, Va.-- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Rep. Paul Robertson (D-70) for re-election to the Indiana House of Representatives this November.
"Paul Robertson has earned the NRA-PVF endorsement for his unwavering pro-gun record throughout his political career," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. "His commitment to preserving our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage makes Paul Robertson the clear choice for Hoosier gun owners."
During his tenure in the Indiana House of Representatives, Paul Robertson has consistently supported gun rights for law-abiding citizens and helped pass important legislation in his capacity as Democrat Whip in his House Caucus. He voted to protect lawful firearm owners from being held liable if their firearms are stolen and later used in a crime; supported Indiana's Lifetime Concealed Firearm Permit - the first of its kind in the United States; and 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.
In addition, Robertson supported Indiana's new Emergency Powers and Parking Lot laws, protecting Hoosiers against firearm confiscations during states of emergency and wrongful termination from their job merely for locking their firearms in their personal vehicles while at work, as well as voted to protect the privacy rights of Indiana concealed firearm permit holders.
"Paul Robertson is a strong pro-gun voice in the House Democrat Caucus who will continue to support the Second Amendment," Cox concluded. "We ask all Hoosier gun-owners and hunters in the 70th House District to re-elect Paul Robertson on November 2."
