NRA Endorses Chuck Fleischmann

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

The National Rifle Association has endorsed Chuck Fleischmann for re-election.

In a letter to Rep. Fleischmann, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund thanked him for his "steadfast support of the Second Amendment" and congratulated him on his "A" rating. They also thanked him for his stand against President Obama and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control agenda. The NRA also mentioned Congressman Fleischmann’s support of National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity legislation, and his support of the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act.

"The support of the NRA means a lot, and I am grateful for it. I have always been a strong defender of our Second Amendment rights and their endorsement confirms that. In Congress, I will always fight for our right to ‘keep and bear arms’," Rep. Fleischmann said.
