Bolling Gets NRA Nod

The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund announced today that it is endorsing Virginia Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling for re-election. Bill Bolling’s strong support of the Second Amendment has earned him an “A+” rating.

Democrat Jody Wagner, Bolling's opponent, failed to return the NRA candidate questionnaire which is often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, toward gun owners’ and sportsmen’s rights.

In a press release announcing the endorsement Chris Cox said:

As a former state senator and as Virginia’s current lieutenant governor, Bill Bolling has given 14 years of public service to defending and preserving the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Virginians.

From his days in the State Senate, Lieutenant Governor Bolling has consistently earned NRA-PVF’s highest legislative rating for his support of law-abiding gun owners and Virginia’s proud hunting heritage.

In 2005, he voted in favor of HB 2282, a bill introduced at the request of VSSA by fellow member Delegate Bill Janis, creating a statewide standard for range noise management that ensures Virginia’s sportsmen have adequate venues in which to practice firearm safety and proficiency. Also that year, Bolling voted against SB 807, which would have been the first step to banning the private transfer of firearms, even between family members.

Virginia's gun owners are urged to do all they can to help Lt. Governor Bolling win re-election. You can find contact information at http://www.billbolling.com/.

Here's a funny music video making fun of "gun free zones from sea to sea." The vision of "New America" according to progressives, who hate the NRA:
