Chris Cox, NRA’s chief lobbyist and chairman of the NRA-PVF, commenting on the endorsement, "Congressman Mollohan has a long record of fighting for and protecting the Second Amendment for law-abiding West Virginians. His steadfast support of West Virginia gun owners and sportsmen has earned him the NRA’s endorsement."
Alan Mollohan earned an "A+" rating , the NRA-PVF’s highest rating, based on his perfect pro-gun voting record and his pro-active efforts to preserve the Second Amendment in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Congressman Mollohan was a co-sponsor of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, that President Bush signed into law last fall. This law put an end to politically motivated lawsuits against American gun makers by holding criminals responsible for the crimes that they commit. He is also a co-sponsor of the legislation to repeal the decades-old gun ban in Washington, D.C.
"West Virginia’s hunters and gun owners value their freedom, and Alan Mollohan is the best candidate to serve them." Cox continued, "We urge our members and West Virginia gun owners to vote for Alan Mollohan on November 7."
