National Rifle Association Endorses McHenry

Press Release

Location: Hickory, NC

The National Rifle Association (NRA) Political Victory Fund has announced their endorsement of Congressman Patrick McHenry for re-election in North Carolina's 10th Congressional District. The NRA has awarded Congressman McHenry an "A" rating for his pro Second Amendment voting record.

"As your representative, I will defend the rights of law abiding citizens to purchase, use, and keep personal firearms. Gun control laws only endanger honest citizens. Criminals will not be deterred by additional government regulation preventing the right to bear arms," Congressman McHenry stated in response to the endorsement.

He continued by saying, "I will vigorously oppose measures to register firearms with law enforcement or government agencies. History demonstrates that registration is the first step to confiscation."
McHenry voted for the Sportsmen's Heritage Act (H.R. 4089) on April 17, 2012, which would clarify federal authorities and policies for the management of hunting and fishing on public lands. The bill also protects the use of traditional ammunition and fishing tackle from new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.
