Halfmoon, NY – New York State Senator Kathy Marchione (R,C,I,Reform-Halfmoon) today proudly announced that she was endorsed for re-election this fall by the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) in recognition of her consistent championing of the right to keep and bear arms.

In addition to endorsing Senator Marchione for re-election this fall, the NRA-PVF also awarded Marchione the coveted grade of A+ – the NRA’s highest possible rating – for her proven record of being a true defender of the Second Amendment.

“Senator Marchione is one of the most ardent supporters of the Second Amendment in Albany.  Her A+ rating is well deserved and reflective of the hard work she does on behalf of New York gun owners,” said Darin Goens, NRA-ILA New York State Liaison.

“She was one of the few who stood and spoke out against the SAFE Act as it was being forced through the process in the middle of the night in 2013. While some have paid lip service to the issue, Senator Marchione has been a true warrior, fighting in the trenches for the state’s gun owners.”

“Receiving the NRA’s strong endorsement for my re-election this fall – coupled with the grade of an A+, the highest rating provided to only the very strongest pro-Second Amendment candidates – is an honor and a privilege. I thank the men and women of the NRA for their strong endorsement and recognition of my commitment to defending freedom,” Senator Marchione said.

“The Second Amendment is our God-given right to protect ourselves, our family, our homes and our freedom and it shall NOT be infringed. I am proud to be a champion of America’s first freedom and I’ll continue leading the fight in the New York State Legislature to defend our right to keep and bear arms,” SenatorMarchione said.

More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation’s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
