National Rifle Association Endorses Spartz in CD-5

NOBLESVILLE, IN – The National Rifle Association announced today it has endorsed Republican State Senator Victoria Spartz in the race for Indiana’s 5th Congressional District.

“As someone who grew up under a government dictatorship and understands that the fundamental reason for the 2nd Amendment is to protect people from any potential tyranny of the government, I am honored to be the only candidate in the 5th District to be endorsed by the NRA,” Spartz said. “We must always remember that our Founding Fathers made this amendment the second, not the fifth or the tenth, for a reason. They knew that you would lose your first if you don’t have the second. Only the government and criminals will always have the ability to have guns. The first thing every dictator did, whether it’s Hitler, Stalin or Mao, was take the guns from law abiding citizens. These rights make us stronger as individuals to protect ourselves and make us free and less dependent on the government. As a life member of the NRA and a state senator, I have a proven record defending these rights and I always will!”

Jason Ouimet, Chairman, NRA-PVF, shared the following statement: “Victoria Spartz has been a tireless defender of every law-abiding Indiana gun owner’s Second Amendment freedoms. The NRA wholeheartedly endorses Victoria Spartz and urges all members, gun owners, and sportsmen of Indiana’s 5th Congressional District to cast their vote for Spartz come June 2​.”

The National Rifle Association is America’s longest-standing civil rights organization. Founded to advance rifle marksmanship, the modern NRA continues to teach firearm safety and competency and has more than 5 million members.
