Fairfax, Va. – Today the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is announcing its endorsement of Johnny Isakson for election to the U.S. Senate this November.
“The NRA-PVF is endorsing Johnny Isakson because he is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “His solid and consistent pro-gun support has earned him an ‘A’ rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.”
As a United States Senator, Isakson has demonstrated a consistent commitment to Second Amendment rights by voting for legislation that prevents bogus lawsuits against gun manufacturers and prohibits gun confiscation during states of emergency. He voted to restore self-defense rights in our nation’s capital, as well as signing the pro-gun congressional amicus brief to the Supreme Court supporting the individual right to keep and bear arms in the Heller case. Isakson also signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief arguing that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans in the McDonald case. Additionally, he voted against confirmation of anti-gun Supreme Court Justice nominees Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.
“On November 2nd, I urge all Georgia NRA members, hunters and gun owners to vote Johnny Isakson for U.S. Senate,” Cox concluded.
