NRA-PVF Endorses Richard Burr for U.S. Senate

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

Fairfax, Va.— On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is pleased to endorse Richard Burr for the office of U.S. Senate in the North Carolina Republican primary.

Based on his leadership on Second Amendment issues, Richard Burr has earned an “A+” rating from the NRA-PVF in the 2016 election. An “A+” is the highest possible rating and is reserved for those with an excellent public record on critical NRA issues who have also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.

“On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Richard Burr for U.S. Senate in the North Carolina Republican primary. His leadership and consistent voting record in support of the Second Amendment has earned him an ‘A+’ rating from the NRA. As a North Carolinian and outdoorsman, Richard has always fought to preserve our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage, and has stood strong against President Obama and former New York City billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control agenda. I urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in North Carolina to vote Richard Burr for U.S. Senate in the March 15th Republican primary.”

Richard has a proven record of strongly supporting the individual right to Keep and Bear Arms. He has voted against the Obama/Bloomberg so-called “universal” background check system that could criminalize the private transfer of firearms which, according to the Justice Department, is only enforceable through a federal firearms registry. He also voted for Concealed Carry Reciprocity legislation, which would ensure that law-abiding Americans with the legal right to carry concealed would be able to carry their firearm for self-defense in any other state. Furthermore, he voted against anti-gun nominees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court. Moreover, Richard believes hunting is a valuable tool for wildlife management, a positive use of natural resources, and an American tradition that teaches young people responsibility and respect for the outdoors.

“We can count on Richard Burr to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in North Carolina,” added Cox. “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Richard for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in North Carolina to vote Richard Burr for U.S. Senate in the Republican primary on March 15th.” 


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.
