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 Lamar Alexander for U.S. Senate in Tennessee.
“Lamar is an ally in the fight to preserve our Second Amendment freedoms,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “He will strongly oppose any attempt by President Obama and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to dismantle our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”
Alexander 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 any treaty by the United Nations or any other global organization that would impose restrictions on American gun owners.
Alexander has been a leader in the fight against Obama’s attempt to ban legally owned ivory. He also voted for concealed carry reciprocity, which would allow law-abiding Americans to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.
“On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Lamar for his support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Tennessee to vote Lamar Alexander 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.
