NRA Endorses Tom Corbett
On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Tom Corbett for Governor in Pennsylvania.
Based on his support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Corbett has earned an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF in the 2014 general election. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun candidate who has supported the NRA’s position on issues of importance to gun owners and sportsmen.
“Tom Corbett has stood up to the gun control crowd and protected our Second Amendment freedoms in Pennsylvania,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “As Governor, he signed into law ‘Castle Doctrine’ legislation expanding protection to law-abiding citizens for self-defense. Prior to that, when he served as Attorney General, Tom tripled the number of right-to-carry reciprocity agreements with other states allowing Pennsylvanians to better protect themselves and their families while traveling outside the Keystone state.”
Gov. Corbett has a proven record supporting our fundamental, individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms. He believes hunting is a valuable tool for wildlife management, a positive use of natural resources, and an American tradition that teaches young people responsibility and respect for the outdoors. In addition, Corbett signed pro-gun “friend of the court” briefs in the landmark Heller and McDonald cases asserting that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual right for all law-abiding Americans.
“We can continue to count on Tom Corbett to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in Pennsylvania,” added Cox. “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Tom for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Pennsylvania to vote Tom Corbett for Governor on November 4.”
The race for Pennsylvania Governor is FAST becoming a referendum on the right to bear arms with even national implications! The most recent additions to this unfolding drama is the endorsement of Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Tom Wolf, by Cease-Fire PA a statewide anti-gun group and anti-gun former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (creator of the anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns)!
Every gun owner in Pennsylvania has a right to be concerned as well as an obligation to be informed as to where the real issues lie with both candidates for governor!
Gov. Corbett signed Castle doctrine into law and Cease-Fire PA opposed this legislation and a citizen’s right to self-defense. Further as an attorney general, Tom Corbett used his office to spearhead the gun violence task force in Philadelphia that in one year reduced overall homicides by 25%.
Cease-Fire PA makes erroneous claims that Tom Corbett has not done anything to protect our families (as if they know ‘anything’ other than banning gun ownership) and yet the very anti-gun agenda that Tom Wolf has pledged to support from Cease-Fire PA has been shown to significantly increase the likelihood of harm to our families.
The factually and philosophically challenged anti-gun groups of cease-fire PA and Bloomberg’s minions are hard at work trying to advance a candidate to office who has said in writing that he will work hard to advance the anti-gun agenda. This has never worked in any state in our nation and this agenda is before all of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on this November 4! The stark contrast between these two candidates, Tom Corbett versus Tom Wolf, has never been more starkly apparent.
The gunowners in Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland, New York, and others all felt that it could not happen to them! It has! It is up to you now to decide if Pennsylvania joins the ranks of those states on November 4! Please try to do all you can and to get your friends and family to the polls! Thank you for all your time, your consideration of these concerns and any assistance you can offer!

The Honorable Keith Rothfus
P.O. Box 435

Dear Representative Rothfus:
On behalf of our five 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 Pennsylvania’s 12 th Congressional District. 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 in the November 4, 2014, election. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun legislator who has supported NRA positions on key votes. Throughout your career, you have consistently opposed all attempts to ban lawfully- owned firearms and magazines, and have stood strong against President Obama and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control agenda. You voted for H.R. 3590, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Act, a bill that would positively impact sportsmen throughout Pennsylvania and the country. Specifically, the SHARE Act would protect traditional hunting ammunition, open additional land access for hunting and fishing, and allow firearms to be legally carried on land managed by the Army Corps of Engineers. In addition, you are a cosponsor of H.R. 2959 , the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013. This bill would ensure that law-abiding Americans with a valid concealed handgun permit would be able to carry their concealed firearm in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.
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.

NEW RIFLE RANGE RULES, CHECK MEMBERS AREA BEFORE GOING TO THE RANGE!
Sportsmen and Gun Owners,
HB 921 – PICS to NICS
This bill transfers the PICS (Pa Instant Check System) over to the federal government NICS (National Instant Check System) to approve the transfers of firearms as it’s currently done in 38 other states. This will save PA taxpayers at least $6 million a year and let the Pennsylvania State Police focus their efforts on catching bad guys, instead of keeping records of gun owners, which have no demonstrable purpose of crimes solved with retention of the Records Of Sales.
An opportunity has surfaced for Pa firearms owners / purchasers to get the Pa State Police out of the approval of the firearms purchase business.
Prior to their election in 2010, Tom Corbett and Jim Cawley made an appearance at a Firearms Owners Against Crime (FOAC) meeting in Whitehall Pa. where Tom Corbett promised, if elected, to see what he could do about moving Pa. from the PICS to the NICS system.
At a Re-elect Tom Corbett campaign meeting in New Castle on August 22nd, which myself, and FOAC members Craig Holdren and Vic Gurinowitsch attended, I reminded Governor Corbett about that promise. He stated he would sign that legislation, HB 921, if it gets to his desk.
With the current anti-gun climate in the country following Sandy Hook, firearms legislation in Harrisburg, including HB921, has been languishing in the House. But for whatever the reason, resistance to this bill has softened and it appears that it will move if enough support can be generated through additional cosponsors. This is where we come in but, we have a limited period of time to act. Statewide we need to add 50 additional cosponsors by October 21st, to get this bill moving.
Attached is a chart of Beaver and Lawrence County State Representatives with a selected number of pro-gun House Bills and whether the rep has cosponsored that bill or not. This is only to give you an idea of how pro 2nd Amendment or not, that rep appears to be. The important one is HB921.
Please take advantage of this open door and donate 5 or 10 minutes of your time and call the reps who have not cosponsored HB921 and ask them to do so. Given the number of gun owners in Pa. Their cosponsorship of this bill will increase their “Street Cred” among the gun owning, sportsmenʼs community. Plus they can tout their desire to save Pa tax payers $6 million per year.
For the reps you call who are not your own, your leverage will be the Beaver County Sportsmenʼs Conservation League (BCSCL) and the number of sportsmen it reaches in the western Pa area.
Thanks and please avail yourself of a chance to make a positive move on the 2nd Amendment front. This doesnʼt happen that often so take advantage of it while you can.
FOAC, Regional Coordinator
BCSCL, Secretary & Legislative Liaison
Did you know that, Article 1 Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution states:
“The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.”
