Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Reid Ribble for U.S. House of Representatives in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District.
“Reid Ribble has a proven record of defending our Right to Keep and Bear Arms,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “Because of his solid support for our rights, Ribble has received an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.”
Reid Ribble supports District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago, which held that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms for all law-abiding Americans. Ribble cosponsored and voted for H.R. 822, “The National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act,” which would ensure that law-abiding Americans with valid concealed handgun permits would be able to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry. He also voted for H.R. 4089, “The Sportsmen’s Heritage Act,” which would promote America’s hunting heritage and positively impact sportsmen throughout the country.
In addition, Rep. Ribble voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal and civil contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas related to the deadly Operation Fast and Furious scandal. Ribble opposes a federal gun database and voted for an amendment to prevent the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from circumventing the will of Congress by centralizing records of thousands of Americans’ long gun purchases.
“There are ongoing efforts to undermine the Second Amendment, and we need Members of Congress like Reid Ribble to defend our rights,” concluded Cox. “We urge all NRA members and gun owners in Wisconsin’s 8th District to vote Reid Ribble for U.S. House of Representatives on November 6.”
