Statement by Dick Whiting, West Virginia State Rifle and Pistol Association President
ARLINGTON, VA - Today, West Virginia State Rifle and Pistol Association President Dick Whiting issued the following statement:
"The West Virginia State Rifle and Pistol Association is endorsing President Bush because America needs a president who always respects our Second Amendment rights. West Virginia voters aren't going to trust a candidate who came to our state and pranced around the stage with a shot gun that he once supported banning. That was after Kerry went to Wisconsin and talked about hunting deer while crawling around on his belly. The reality is that Kerry has an 'F' rating from the NRA and deserves an F' rating when it comes to his credibility among West Virginia sportsmen."
Note: On September 17, 2004, the West Virginia State Rifle and Pistol Association formally endorsed President George W. Bush as candidate of choice for President.
