March 29, 2016 - Today, Counter-Terrorism Military Officer, Reserve Deputy Sheriff and leading candidate, Paul Chabot, announced the endorsement from Gun Owners of America (GOA).
"Paul Chabot is an American hero who has served in our military and as a reserve deputy sheriff," said Tim Macy, Chairman, Gun Owners of America.
"Too many politicians come to Washington and quickly become part of the D.C. establishment. But I know Paul Chabot is different. He is a fighter with a proven record of standing up for the constitutional rights of the people of California. GOA is proud to make this endorsement, and to stand with Paul Chabot for Congress."
With over 300,000 members nationwide Gun Owners of America remains one of the last organizations left to defend Americans' 2nd Amendment Rights. The GOA Board of Directors brings over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience on guns, legislation and politics.
"It is an honor to receive GOA's endorsement," said Chabot. "Responsible firearm ownership in this nation is a right that so many take for granted - except those who have had their lives saved because of it. Violent crime has increased statewide 14% and in some places in the 31st it is well over 25%. We need leaders who know, first-hand, what it takes to fight crime. As a Member of Congress I will fight to ensure that law-abiding Californians don't have their rights trampled on by out-of-touch career politicians in Washington."
