Dear Representative Marino:

On behalf of our six million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse your candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 12th Congressional District of Pennsylvania in the November 6, 2018 general election.

Thank you for standing strong for freedom and defending NRA members and law-abiding gun owners in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. Based on your consistent and proven voting record on Second Amendment issues in the U.S. House of Representatives, you have earned an “A” rating from NRA-PVF for this election. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun legislator who has supported NRA positions on key votes and issues.

As a member of the House Committee on the Judiciary, you helped bring concealed carry reciprocity legislation to the House floor and voted for its passage. This bill is the strongest piece of self-defense legislation to ever come before Congress and would ensure that the nearly 20 million law-abiding Americans who can carry a concealed firearm in their home state are able to do so in any other state that does not prohibit it.

NRA members and Pennsylvania hunters appreciate your vote for the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreation Enhancement (SHARE) Act, a bill that would benefit sportsmen in Pennsylvania and throughout the country.

In addition, we applaud your votes to strike down an Obama-era regulation that stripped Social Security recipients of their Second Amendment rights without due process, and for legislation to protect veterans’ Second Amendment rights.

Finally, your dedication to protecting our right to keep and bear arms is demonstrated by your opposition to the Pelosi/Schumer/Bloomberg gun control agenda of banning guns, ammunition, magazines, and creating a so-called universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of firearms, which, according to the Obama Department of Justice, is only enforceable through federal firearms registration.

Congratulations on your “A” rating and endorsement, and thank you for your steadfast support of the Second Amendment. Good luck with your campaign, and we look forward to our continued relationship.


Sincerely, Dan Chris W. Cox
