NRA Endorses Young for Re-Election

The National Rifle Association has endorsed Congressman Todd Young, R-In., in his re-election bid. The group's Political Victory Fund notified Young of the endorsement on Thursday, saying the freshman lawmaker has a "solid and consistent voting record" and an A-rating from gun rights advocates. NRA leaders also praised Young for co-sponsoring the National Right to Carry Reciprocity Act, which would allow out-of-state visitors to carry concealed firearms as long as their home states permits them to do so."I'm proud to support the Second Amendment right of our fellow Hoosiers to keep and bear arms," Young said in a statement. "This right is especially important in our part of the state, where our thousands of acres of forest and field provide numerous opportunities for hunting.  But more than that, Hoosiers deserve to feel safe and protected in their own homes, and proper and responsible ownership of firearms provides exactly that."Young is running unopposed in the GOP primary.
