Hawley announces NRA endorsement in re-election bid
Press Release, State Assemblyman Steve Hawley
In his bid for another term representing Genesee, Orleans and portions of Monroe counties in the State Assembly, Steve Hawley (R-Batavia) announced today that he has received an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association and the group’s endorsement for the 2018 general election.
Hawley, a consistent proponent of the right to bear arms, has sponsors several bills to repeal the NY SAFE-Act, passed legislation authorizing big game hunting in Genesee and Orleans counties and has been an unwavering voice against New York’s left-wing extremist groups seeking to dissolve the Second Amendment and cut back the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
“I am honored to once again have the endorsement and full confidence of the NRA,” Hawley said. “The fear tactics and subsequent extreme stances of some groups in our state are trying to severely roll back the rights of law-abiding firearm owners and undercut our constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and I will not stand idly by while that happens.”
“Hunting and responsible firearm ownership is a tradition here in Western New York,” he said. “We deserve the right to protect our home and family from danger and deserve to pass down the rewarding and special tradition of hunting that teaches valuable lessons of patience, responsibility and reward to so many. I will always stand for the Second Amendment and, rest assured, that will remain my duty as your representative in Albany.”
