Virginia Delegate Scott Lingamfelter to Get NRA Carter-Knight Freedom Award

Friday, February 1, 2013

On January 11, the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund voted to award Virginia Delegate L. Scott Lingamfelter with the Carter-Knight Award.  Delegate Lingamfelter is chairman of the House Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee.  He was the chief patron of legislation last year that repealed Virginia’s gun rationing (one-gun-a-month) statute.  In addition, Delegate Lingamfelter is the founder and co-chairman of the Virginia Legislative Sportsmen Caucus.

"We were most impressed with Delegate Lingamfelter's unwavering principles, proven expertise and genuine accomplishments," said Fund Chairman and NRA Director William H. Dailey.  Established in 1989, the Carter-Knight Freedom Fund Award is the most prestigious honor bestowed by the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund.  Named for Harlon Carter, founding Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, and George Knight, founder of the Fund, it was created to honor those who demonstrate exemplary support for the constitutional and human Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

The announcement of this award was made last week in this news release.  For more information about this award, please click here.

Delegate Scott Lingamfelter is and has been a champion of and leader on our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage during his entire tenure in the Virginia House of Delegates.  Accordingly, he deserves your appreciation and praise.

An anti-NRA group posing as pro-gun has recently circulated information questioning the motive and timing of this award.   This same state group and its national ally have also disseminated information misrepresenting gun-related legislation in the Virginia General Assembly.
