Fairfax, Va.— On behalf of our six million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed Chip Roy for U.S. House of Representatives in the 21st Congressional District of Texas.
“Chip Roy will stand strong to protect the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF.
Roy strongly opposes the Pelosi/Schumer/Bloomberg gun control agenda and will vote for legislation to protect and expand Americans’ Second Amendment freedoms. He supports concealed carry reciprocity legislation, which would ensure that the nearly 20 million law-abiding Americans who can carry a concealed firearm in their home state are able to legally carry concealed across state lines. He also supports veterans’ Second Amendment rights and opposes bans on commonly owned rifles and ammunition.
Roy’s opponent, Joseph Kopser, is an “F” rated candidate who would act as a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi’s gun control agenda. He opposes concealed carry reciprocity and wants to criminalize private firearm transfers between lifelong friends and many family members.
“Chip Roy is the only candidate in this race who will defend our Second Amendment rights. The NRA encourages all freedom-loving Texans in the 21st congressional district to vote Chip Roy for Congress in November,” 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.
