NRA-PVF Endorses Charles Grassley for U.S. Senate

Monday, September 20, 2010

Fairfax, Va.-- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Charles Grassley for re-election to the U.S. Senate this November. 

 

“Charles Grassley is a steadfast supporter of our freedom,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.  “He has an unwavering record of fighting for the Second Amendment freedoms of all law-abiding Americans and has earned the trust of Iowa gun owners.”

 

As a United States Senator, Grassley has demonstrated a proven commitment to our Second Amendment rights. He cosponsored and voted for legislation enacted into law that prevents bogus lawsuits against gun manufacturers and voted to prohibit gun confiscation during states of emergency as happened after Hurricane Katrina.  He also voted to repeal Washington D.C.'s gun ban/registration statute and restore the right of self-defense to law-abiding residents of our nation’s capital.

 

Grassley signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of our individual right to keep and bear arms in the historic Heller case and signed the congressional amicus brief stating that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that applies to all Americans, no matter where they live, in the McDonald case. Additionally, he voted against the confirmation of anti-gun Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

 

Senator Grassley voted for the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity amendment, which would extend federal protection of state right-to-carry licenses and permits across the country, and cosponsored legislation to force much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

 

 “Iowa hunters and gun owners value their right to own firearms and Charles Grassley is the best candidate to help them preserve that freedom,” Cox continued. “We urge all NRA members and gun owners to vote Charles Grassley for U.S. Senate on November 2.”

 

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.
