The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, representing four million members across the country, awarded its endorsement to United States Representative Lou Barletta. Citing Barletta's solid and consistent pro-gun voting record, the NRA-PVF also gave Barletta an "A" rating.
"On behalf of our four million members nationwide, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse you for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District. Based on your solid and consistent pro-gun voting record, you received an "A" rating from the NRA-PVF," stated James J. Baker, Director of Federal Affairs. Baker continued, "Thank you for your unwavering support of the Second Amendment. We urge our members, gun owners and sportsmen in Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District to vote for you on November 6th."
"As a gun owner, I understand the meaning and significance of the Second Amendment. I believe in an individual right to keep, own, and use firearms and my record is consistent with that belief. I will always be vigilant in defense of the Second Amendment and I am honored to accept the endorsement and support of the NRA." Congressman Barletta responded.
