NRA Endorses Ken Paxton for Attorney General in Texas

Thursday, September 18, 2014

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 Ken Paxton for Attorney General of Texas.

Based on his support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Paxton has earned an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF in the 2014 general election.  An “A” rating is reserved for a pro-gun elected official who has consistently supported the NRA’s position on votes of importance to gun owners and sportsmen.

“During his service in the Texas State Legislature, Ken was a steadfast and strong supporter of the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF.  “He co-authored and voted for the landmark employee parking lot protection law and co-authored legislation to expand concealed carry rights in Texas.  As Attorney General, Ken will help lead the fight to protect our individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms against federal intrusion and attacks by local governments acting outside their authority under state law.”

Paxton also respects and supports hunting as a valuable tool for wildlife management and conservation.  Paxton rejects the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda, which includes restrictions on transferring firearms between life-long friends and family members.

“We can count on Ken Paxton to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in Texas,” added Cox.  “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Ken Paxton for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Texas to vote Ken Paxton for Attorney General on November 4.”
