Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing David Freed for Attorney General in Pennsylvania.
“David Freed is committed to protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms guaranteed to all Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “He has earned an “AQ” rating from the NRA-PVF, and we proudly endorse him for election as Pennsylvania’s Attorney General.”
As Cumberland County’s District Attorney, Freed has consistently supported the right to self-defense. He has a proven record of standing up for law enforcement and private citizens who have been forced to use deadly force to defend themselves.
In contrast, his opponent, Kathleen Kane, has publically advocated for more gun control laws. Kane expressed support for anti-gun measures during a debate at the Pennsylvania Progressive Summit in February 2012. She is rated “?” by the NRA-PVF for refusing to return the NRA state candidate questionnaire. That refusal is viewed as a sign of indifference or outright hostility to the rights of gun owners and sportsmen.
“The choice in this election is clear. David Freed will protect our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage. Kathleen Kane will not,” Cox continued. “We urge all gun owners and sportsmen in Pennsylvania to vote David Freed for Attorney General on November 6.”
Chris W. Cox is NRA's chief lobbyist. He also serves as chairman of NRA-PVF. The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund is responsible for political candidate ratings and endorsements. These are based on candidate voting records, public statements and responses to NRA-PVF questionnaires.
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
