NRA-PVF Endorses Roger Wicker for U.S. Senate

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Fairfax, VA-The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing U.S. Senator Roger Wicker for re-election in Mississippi.

“We are pleased to endorse Senator Wicker for re-election because of his longstanding, steadfast and proven commitment to preserving our Second Amendment freedoms,” said Chris W. Cox, Chairman of NRA - PVF. “We know he will continue the work he has started in the United States Senate.”

Roger Wicker has a history of defending the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. During his seven terms serving Mississippi’s first congressional district, Senator Wicker voted in support of and co-sponsored numerous NRA-backed bills, including measures bringing much-needed reform to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, preventing malicious lawsuits against the firearm industry through the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act and securing our Second Amendment freedoms in the wake of a natural disaster with the Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act.

As United States Senator, Roger Wicker has continued his strong support of gun owners’ rights by voting to revise current policies by the National Park Service and the National Wildlife Service to make right-to-carry laws consistent throughout our national parks. Senator Wicker also signed the historic congressional amicus brief in support of the right of Washington, D.C. residents to defend themselves with firearms in their own homes.

Roger Wicker’s strong pro-gun record has earned him an “A” rating and endorsement by NRA-PVF.

“NRA-PVF is endorsing Roger Wicker because we know that he has worked tirelessly to preserve our Second Amendment freedoms for future generations,” concluded Cox. “I ask every Mississippi gun owner and NRA member to vote for Roger Wicker for U.S. Senate on November 4th.”
