George Allen endorsed by National Rifle Association

Today, the National Rifle Association (NRA) endorsed George Allen for U.S. Senate, citing his stellar record of defending the Second Amendment and protecting our Constitutional right to bear arms.  The NRA is America’s leading organization promoting gun safety education and the Second Amendment with more than 4 million current members nationwide.

“It’s a most significant honor to receive the important endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA), a great American organization with so many patriotic, active members throughout Virginia.  The NRA supports law enforcement professionals, gun safety education and stands strong for our foundational Second Amendment rights.  I have always been proud to support the natural rights of law-abiding citizens to protect their families and themselves.  In the U.S. Senate I will remain committed to defending our rights enshrined in our Constitution,” said George Allen.  

“My friends in the sportsmen community who enjoy the natural beauty of Virginia’s fields, forests, streams and lakes can count on me to be a strong and steadfast advocate for their freedom to hunt and fish.  And all Virginians have my commitment to stand up for their God-given rights.  The way to reduce crime is to crack down on criminals, not disarm our law-abiding citizens.”

George Allen has been a leader for more than three decades in defending our Second Amendment rights, enacting truth-in-sentencing, and supporting victims, their families and law enforcement professionals.  He has consistently earned an A or A+ rating from the National Rifle Association.
