On Wednesday, the NRA’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) announced its endorsement of incumbent Pat McCrory for governor of North Carolina.
During his first term in office, McCrory was a powerful advocate for Second Amendment rights in the Tar Heel State. His pro-gun legacy was cemented with the signing of the most comprehensive pro-gun measures in state history, HB937, which reformed the Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) system. But his tireless advocacy on the part of gun owners didn’t end there. In July 2015, he signed the Outdoor Heritage Act, removing the outdated prohibition on Sunday hunting, and in August he signed HB562, which further streamlined the CHP process, improved range protection laws, strengthened statewide pre-emption statutes and more.
“I urge our members and supporters in the Tar Heel State to vote Pat McCrory for governor in November,” said NRA-PVF Chairman Chris W. Cox. “McCrory will stand with NRA to protect our freedoms.”
