Fairfax, Va. - On behalf of our more than five million members, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed Bill Powers for re-election to the 22nd Senate district of Tennessee.
"Bill Powers is an unwavering supporter of our Second Amendment freedoms and we can trust him to defend our right to self-defense," said Matt Herriman, NRA-ILA's Tennessee state director. “The NRA is proud to endorse his re-election.”
Powers earned an "A" rating from the NRA. A longtime champion of the right to keep and bear arms, one of Powers' greatest displays of expanding the rights of gun owners came in his support of the new online concealed carry permit and his public showing of support for Gov. Lee's constitutional carry bill.
"We can count on Bill Powers to stand up for our right to self-defense. The NRA encourages all members, gun owners and sportsmen to vote Bill Powers on Aug. 6," Herriman concluded.
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
