Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Bob Corker for U.S. Senate in Tennessee.
"Bob Corker has fought to protect our Second Amendment rights," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "His strong voting record has earned him an "A" rating from the NRA-PVF, and we proudly endorse him for re-election to the U.S. Senate."
Bob Corker voted against confirming anti-Second Amendment Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, and joined the historic briefs filed before the U.S. Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago, which argued that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Tennessee or anywhere else in America. Senator Corker signed bipartisan letters opposing any international treaty by the United Nations or any other global organization that would impose restrictions on American gun owners. He also voted for the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity amendment, which would have ensured that law-abiding Americans with a valid concealed handgun permit would have been able to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.
“We need senators like Bob Corker to continue defending our rights,” continued Cox. “We urge all NRA members, gun owners, and sportsmen in Tennessee to vote Bob Corker for U.S. Senate 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.
