NRA-PVF Endorses Steve Stivers for U.S. House of Representatives in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District

Friday, September 10, 2010

Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Steve Stivers for election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Ohio's 15th Congressional District this November.

“The NRA-PVF is proud to endorse Steve Stivers because he is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in Ohio,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “Because of his solid and consistent pro-gun support, Stivers has earned an ‘A’ rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.”

Stivers voted for state right-to-carry legislation in 2003 while serving in the Ohio Senate and supports repealing the D.C. gun ban/registration statute to restore the right of self-defense to law-abiding residents of our nation’s capital. He also supports legislation to force much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Steve

Stivers will be a strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts by anti-gun politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment. In contrast, his opponent, Mary Jo Kilroy, has consistently opposed the Second Amendment, earning an ‘F’ rating from the NRA-PVF. She accepted campaign contributions from national gun ban groups like the Brady Campaign, as well as from radical anti-hunting groups like Humane USA Federal PAC. Kilroy’s long list of anti-gun support includes: refusing to sign the pro-gun congressional “friend of the court” brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in the historic McDonald case supporting the position that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans; voting twice in committee to allow taxpayer-supported public housing agencies and owners of assisted housing to ban the possession and use of legal firearms by law-abiding residents; and refusing to answer NRA’s federal candidate questionnaire this year and in the past – a clear indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to the rights of gun owners and sportsmen.

“Steve Stivers is the clear choice to protect our right to keep and bear arms in Ohio,” Cox continued. “We ask all gun-owners and hunters in Ohio’s 15th District to elect Steve Stivers to the U.S. House on November 2nd.”

Chris W. Cox is NRA's chief lobbyist. He also serves as 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.
