Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Rick Crawford for U.S. House of Representatives in Arkansas’s 1st Congressional District.
“Rick Crawford is committed to protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms guaranteed to all Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “His strong dedication and voting record have earned him an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF, and we proudly endorse him for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.”
Rick Crawford supports District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago, which held that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms for all law-abiding Americans. While serving in Congress, Rick Crawford cosponsored and voted for H.R. 822, “The National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act,” which would ensure that law-abiding Americans with valid concealed handgun permits would be able to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry. He voted for H.R. 4089, “The Sportsmen’s Heritage Act,” which would promote America’s hunting heritage and positively impact sportsmen throughout the country.
Crawford voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas related to the deadly Operation Fast and Furious scandal, and voted for an amendment to prevent the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from circumventing the will of Congress by centralizing records of thousands of Americans’ long gun purchases.
“Voters in Arkansas can trust that Rick Crawford will respect their right to self-defense and will honor their rich hunting heritage,” Cox continued. “We urge all NRA members and gun owners in Arkansas’s 1st District to vote Rick Crawford for U.S. House of Representatives on November 6.”
