Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Deb Fischer for U.S. Senate in Nebraska.
“Deb Fischer is committed to protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms guaranteed to all Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “Her strong dedication and voting record in the state Senate have earned her an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.”
Deb Fisher opposes any anti-gun nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court and opposes any international treaty by the United Nations or any other global organization that would impose restrictions on American gun owners. She supports “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.
As a member of the Nebraska Senate, Fischer cosponsored and voted for LB 454 in 2006, granting law-abiding citizens the right-to-carry firearms for personal protection. She also voted to remove burdensome restrictions on Nebraska concealed carry permit holders.
In contrast, Fischer’s opponent, Bob Kerrey, has a history of opposing the rights of gun owners. As a result, Kerrey has earned an “F” rating from the NRA-PVF. During his time in the U.S. Senate, Kerrey voted for the failed semi-auto gun ban and voted for an amendment to put gun shows out of business.
“The choice is clear in this election. Deb Fischer will support our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage. Bob Kerrey will not,” Cox continued. “We urge all NRA members and gun owners in Nebraska to vote Deb Fischer 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.
