Fairfax, Va.— On behalf of our members in the State of Mississippi, the National Rifle Association's Political Victory Fund (PVF) proudly announces its endorsement of Governor Phil Bryant (R) for re-election in the 2015 Mississippi Primary Election.
Under Governor Bryant's leadership, Mississippi has significantly reformed its laws to affirm our Second Amendment freedoms
NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox stated, "Under Governor Bryant's leadership, Mississippi has significantly reformed its laws to affirm our Second Amendment freedoms by giving law-abiding citizens more legal personal protection options with less government interference. He has also helped work to ensure that the Magnolia State preserves its rich hunting heritage and sporting traditions for generations to come."
During his first term as governor, Phil Bryant has signed into law more than a dozen pro-gun and pro-sportsmen measures. He also actively promoted passage of Amendment No. 1, the Right to Hunt and Fish amendment to the Mississippi Constitution, which was adopted by 88 percent of the voters in 2014.
"We encourage all NRA members and sportsmen to vote Phil Bryant for Governor in the August 4 Primary Election," concluded Cox.
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
