Conservative Republican 10th Congressional Candidate Dan Meuser received the endorsement of The Firearms Owners Against Crime. The Firearms Owners Against Crime is a non-partisan, non-connected Political Action Committee formed in 1993 and opposes restrictions on the legitimate use of firearms, including personal and property protection.
In a letter today, the organization said they "looked forward to working with [Dan Meuser] on issues of mutual concern".
"As the son of a police officer, I grew up around guns and have a deep appreciation of gun safety as well as personal and property protection," Dan Meuser said. "I believe the Second Amendment is a non-negotiable individual right and I will oppose legislation that would infringe on our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms."
According to their statement of purpose, "[Firearms Owners Against Crime] recommend that you never, ever vote for the lesser of two evils.' If [FOAC] cannot make a good recommendation, then [they] simply do not make a recommendation for that race."
The FOAC's letter continued to say they selected Dan Meuser for endorsement after a thorough review and that they will communicate this information to their membership.
Chairman Stolfer said, "We believe that a strong, independent and constitutionally sound Government is essential for our society to flourish in these trying times."
Dan Meuser is endorsed by former Senator Rick Santorum, Mayor Lou Barletta, American Conservative Union Chairman and NRA Second Vice President David Keene as well as the Northumberland and Lackawanna County GOP, Sen. John Gordner, Sen. Charlie Lemmond, Rep. Merle Phillips, Rep. Russ Fairchild, Rep Adam Harris, Rep. Garth Everett and numerous other local elected officials.
