Washington, D.C. – The Executive Director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, Chris Cox, was the keynote speaker at the second fundraiser for the Hunter Defense Fund.

At a May dinner in the Washington capital area, Chris delivered a powerful message about hunters and hunting being attacked not just by gun-control advocates, but also by individuals masquerading as sportsmen and women to score political points.

“Election cycle after election cycle, environmentalists and anti-gun groups try to hijack the good name of hunters to promote their extreme agenda,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox. “If we are going to protect our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage for current and future generations, it’s critical that we stand united. The Hunter Defense Fund plays a significant role in that effort, by uniting hunters in defense of our fundamental rights.”

The Hunter Defense Fund exists as the ONLY Super PAC dedicated to counteracting anti-hunters, by working to elect candidates willing to take the tough votes to preserve our hunting heritage in Congress. Contributions from hunters across America have already topped $100,000.

“If you care about the future of hunting, I hope you’ll support the Hunter Defense Fund, as well as the National Rifle Association,” concluded Cox.

About the Hunter Defense Fund: The Hunter Defense Fund is the “First Line of Defense for Hunters” against anti-hunting extremists who are united and working to suppress and restrict our right to hunt.  The Hunter Defense Fund will run dedicated campaigns to protect hunting and to defeat elected officials who are anti-hunting.  All hunters should help today, so that tomorrow is protected.
