NRA-PVF Endorses Joe Wilson for U.S. House of Representatives

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

FAIRFAX, VA-The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Congressman Joe Wilson for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in the second congressional district of South Carolina.

“During his tenure in the House, Congressman Wilson has consistently supported the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen, and demonstrated a strong commitment to the Second Amendment and our country’s rich hunting heritage,” said Chris W. Cox. “Because of this unwavering pro-gun support, Joe Wilson earned an ‘A+’ rating and an endorsement from NRA-PVF.”

“I am honored to have the endorsement of the National Rifle Association,” said Congressman Wilson. “I have been a longtime supporter of the right to keep and bear arms and have stood by many of my fellow South Carolinians in respecting and honoring the rich tradition of gun ownership. During my time in the State Senate, I had the privilege to act as floor leader during debate on a concealed weapon permit law that has helped reduce the level of crime in our state. If given the opportunity to continue serving the people of the second congressional district of South Carolina, I will continue to fight for Second Amendment rights.”

Rep. Wilson has voted to curb frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers for gun-related harm caused by criminals, and to prohibit gun confiscation during states of emergency. He also signed on to the Congressional amicus brief to the Supreme Court in the case of Heller v. District of Columbia, holding that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.

Cox continued, “Joe Wilson believes in South Carolina values, and will continue to be a true and consistent friend in the U.S. House of Representatives. To successfully preserve these positive movements, gun-owners and NRA members must continue to vote for candidates who support our Second Amendment at all levels of local, state and federal government.”

Chris W. Cox serves as Executive Director and Chairman of NRA-PVF. The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund is responsible for political candidate rankings. These are based on candidate voting records, public statements and responses to NRA-PVF questionnaires.
