Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Alabama State Representative Paul DeMarco for the July 15, 2014 Republican primary runoff in Alabama's 6th Congressional District.
"Paul's voting record on Second Amendment issues in the Alabama House of Representatives has earned him an 'A' rating," noted Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. "During his time in the state legislature, Paul voted for numerous pro-gun reforms that were signed into law, including one that makes Alabama a 'shall issue' permit state."
Paul also voted to extend Alabama's Castle Doctrine to include places of business; he voted to allow for all other valid state-issued concealed firearm permits to be recognized in Alabama; he voted to allow those who possess a valid Alabama pistol permit to keep handguns stored in their vehicle while at work; and he supported legislation to allow those who possess a valid Alabama hunting license to store an unloaded rifle or shotgun in their vehicle while at work.
"Paul has proven his determination to fight for gun owners and hunters in Alabama. He shares the NRA's commitment to stand strong against the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda in Washington. We urge all NRA members and supporters in Alabama's 6th Congressional District to vote for Paul DeMarco on July 15th," concluded Cox.
