Fairfax, Va. – On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Tim Scott for U.S. Senate in South Carolina.
Based on his support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Scott has earned an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF in the November 4, 2014 election. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun legislator who has supported the NRA’s position on votes of importance to gun owners.
“Tim backs up his commitment to our Second Amendment Rights with one of the strongest pro-gun and pro-freedom voting records in the Senate,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “Tim speaks from his heart when he refers to the Second Amendment as the ‘cornerstone of our democracy'. Like the overwhelming majority of South Carolina gun owners and sportsmen, he believes that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms secures our other freedoms.”
Scott has stood up to the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda, including their so-called “universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of a firearm between life-long friends and many family members. Additionally, he opposes Obama’s anti-gun nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court, such as Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Scott also opposes any treaty by the United Nations or any other global organization that would impose restrictions on American gun owners.
“We can count on Tim Scott to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in the U.S. Senate,” added Cox. “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Tim for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in South Carolina to vote Tim Scott for U.S. Senate on November 4.”
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.
