Based on his consistent and proven voting record on Second Amendment issues in the U.S. House of Representatives, Representative Walden has earned an “A” rating from NRA-PVF for this election. An “A” rating is reserved for a solidly pro-gun legislator who has supported NRA positions on key votes.
Representative Walden is 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. He voted for a similar bill in 2011.
Representative Walden voted for H.R. 3590, the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act of 2013, a bill that would positively impact sportsmen throughout Oregon and the country. Specifically, the SHARE Act would protect traditional hunting ammunition and fishing tackle, 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, Representative Walden voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress on both criminal and civil charges for the flawed and tragic Fast and Furious scandal.
Furthermore, Greg Walden opposes the Obama-Bloomberg agenda of banning guns, ammunition, magazines, and creating a so-called “universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of firearms between life-long friends and many family members.
That’s why it’s important for you and every freedom-loving voter in Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District to vote for Greg Walden for U.S. House of Representatives on or before Tuesday, November 4th!
