Fairfax, Va.— On behalf of our nearly six million members across the country, the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed Scott Wagner for governor of Pennsylvania.
“Scott Wagner is a staunch supporter of our Second Amendment freedoms and he will fight to protect our fundamental right to self-defense,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF.
Wagner voted for state preemption, which would prevent counties and municipalities from imposing confusing and conflicting local gun control laws. He opposes the extreme Bloomberg gun control agenda, including bans on commonly owned firearms and the criminalization of private firearm transfers between lifelong friends and many family members.
Wagner’s opponent, Tom Wolf, strongly opposes state preemption and supports granting municipalities the ability to enact gun control ordinances. In addition, he supports banning commonly owned rifles and ammunition.
"Scott Wagner is the only candidate in this race who will fight to protect our constitutional rights. The NRA encourages all members, gun owners, and sportsmen to vote Scott Wagner for governor in November,” 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.
