Congressman French Hill announces National Rifle Association Endorsement, ‘A’ Rating

February 18, 2016

Little Rock, Ark. — Republican Congressman French Hill (AR-2) issued the following statement upon receiving an ‘A’ rating from the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) for the March 1, 2016 Republican Primary in the 2nd Congressional District of Arkansas:

“I am honored to receive the distinction of an ‘A’ rating from the NRA. Protecting our constitutional right to bear arms is an issue I will continue to strongly fight for in Congress.”

Congressman Hill’s ‘A’ rating is exclusively for a pro-gun legislator who has supported the NRA on key votes and issues. In 2015, Congressman Hill proudly co-sponsored legislation to support and protect Second Amendment rights including H.R. 3516, the Social Security Beneficiary 2nd Amendment Rights Protection Act, H.R. 402, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act and H.R. 986, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act.

Congressman Hill is an avid hunter and gun rights advocate and has consistently opposed President Obama’s anti-gun Executive Orders and the Obama universal background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of firearms, which, under the Justice Department, is only enforceable through a federal firearms registry. Congressman Hill is a life member of the NRA.

Congressman Hill will continue to work to protect privacy, support Concealed Carry legislation, and oppose Executive Orders that infringe on gun rights.
