NRA-PVF Endorses Boucher for Congress in Virginia

Friday, March 19, 2004

National Rifle Association of America Political Victory Fund Institute for Legislative Action 11250 Waples Mill Road Fairfax, Virginia 22030-7400 _________________________________________________
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: For More Information: March 19, 2004 (703) 267-3820 FAIRFAX, VA -- The National Rifle Association`s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has proudly announced its endorsement of Rick Boucher in his reelection bid in Virginia`s Ninth Congressional District. Boucher has also received an "A+" rating from the Association.

"Rick Boucher is the choice for law-abiding gun owners in Virginia`s Ninth District," said Chris W. Cox, NRA`s chief lobbyist. "Congressman Boucher is a strong advocate of hunters, sportsmen and all who believe in the right of law-abiding citizens to own firearms. We urge all law-abiding gun owners to support him at the polls on November 2nd."

Cox underscored Boucher`s commitment to the cause. "Rick Boucher is a strong Second Amendment supporter. As a member of Congress, he has proven to be a loyal and consistent friend of Virginia gun owners and sportsmen. He has been a key leader and supporter for H.R. 1036, common sense legislation intended to stop big-city lawsuits, orchestrated by the anti-gun crowd, that wrongly attempt to blame law-abiding firearms and ammunition manufacturers for the acts of violent criminals.

"Rick Boucher is a candidate who understands the importance of protecting our sporting heritage for future generations. Voters can be confident that Congressman Boucher will continue to be a staunch defender of Second Amendment rights in the U.S. House of Representatives," concluded Cox.
