Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Texas State Senator Glenn Hegar for Comptroller of Public Accounts in the Republican primary election.
“Sen. Hegar is committed to protecting our Second Amendment freedoms,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “Because of his strong record of supporting our rights, Glenn Hegar has earned an endorsement from the NRA-PVF.”
As a State Senator, Hegar sponsored and helped pass landmark legislation in 2011 protecting the right of hard-working Texans to transport and store firearms in locked, private motor vehicles while parked at work. In 2013, he successfully worked to extend the same freedom from restrictive administrative parking lot policies to students with Concealed Handgun Licenses on the campuses of public and private institutions of higher education. Hegar is a past Chairman of the Texas Legislative Sportsman's Caucus, and in 2009, he was awarded the Doc Brown Legislator of the Year Award by the Texas State Rifle Association for his strong leadership in support of our Second Amendment rights in the Texas Legislature.
In 2013, Hegar received the Defender of Freedom Award from the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action in recognition of his outstanding legislative accomplishments in support of the Second Amendment.
“We urge NRA members and gun owners to vote Glenn Hegar for Comptroller of Public Accounts in the Republican primary election,” Cox concluded.
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.
