Release: Reed Receives NRA Endorsement



Corning- Tom Reed’s campaign today announced the endorsement of the National Rifle Association of America with an “A” rating from the organization’s Political Victory Fund.

Citing legislative accomplishments, the NRA highlighted Tom Reed’s support of H.R. 3590, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act, which will positively impact sportsmen throughout New York and the country, as well as the SHARE Act which protects traditional hunting ammunition while opening additional land access for hunting and fishing on land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers.

“Throughout your career, you have consistently opposed all attempts to ban lawfully-owned firearms and magazines,” said NRA-PVF Chairman, Chris Cox.

The National Rifle Association’s endorsement follows the endorsement of the New York Shooters Committee on Political Education with the organizations “A+” rating for the firm protection of Second Amendment rights while also becoming the first candidate to sign the SCOPE “Anti-SAFE Act Pledge.” Martha Robertson received an “F” rating for her votes in favor of the SAFE Act, voting to ban rifle hunting in Tompkins County and failing to sign the anti-SAFE Act pledge.

"As a life-long hunter and sportsman, Tom's views on the Second Amendment are very clear,” said Katherine Pudwill. “Since he took the oath of office he has worked to ensure that the constitutional freedoms of our friends and neighbors in the Southern Tier are never compromised. In contrast, Martha Robertson voted in support of the SAFE Act and served as chair of the only county legislature in upstate New York that has yet to oppose the legislation. It's no wonder she's getting thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from anti-Second Amendment extremists like Nancy Pelosi.”
