NRA-PVF Endorses Doug Lamborn for U.S. House of Representatives in Colorado’s 5th Congressional District

Friday, September 17, 2010

Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Doug Lamborn for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Colorado’s 5th Congressional District this November.

“Doug Lamborn is a strong defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen in Colorado and across America,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.

During his time in Congress, Lamborn voted to allow carry license or permit holders to carry and transport firearms for self-defense in national parks and wildlife refuges and to protect hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational shooting on public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. He cosponsored and voted for legislation to force much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) and cosponsored the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act, which would extend federal protection of state right-to-carry licenses and permits across the country. He also voted for the Childers Amendment to reverse a 32-year ban on gun ownership in the nation’s capital and cosponsored the Second Amendment Enforcement Act to restore gun rights to law-abiding residents of Washington, D.C.

Lamborn cosponsored the Firearms Interstate Commerce Reform Act that would remove several antiquated and unnecessary restrictions imposed on interstate firearms business since 1968, including interstate handgun sales. In addition, he signed the pro-gun congressional “friend of the court” brief in the 2008 Heller case, supporting the Second Amendment as an individual right and striking down the gun ban in our nation’s capital, and signed the pro-gun congressional brief in the McDonald case, supporting the position that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans.

Doug Lamborn's record and his commitment to preserving our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage has earned him an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.

“On November 2nd, I urge all Colorado NRA Members and gun owners in the 5th District to vote Doug Lamborn for Congress," Cox concluded.
