The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund has endorsed Republican Thom Tillis in North Carolina’s U.S. Senate primary.

Victory Fund chairman Chris Cox called Tillis “a champion on Second Amendment issues.”

“As Speaker of the North Carolina General Assembly, Thom was instrumental in passing two of the most comprehensive pro-gun reforms in state history,” Cox said in a statement.

As speaker, Tillis supported measures that, among other things, make it easier to carry concealed weapons in bars, restaurants, parks and school grounds. The NRA statement said Tillis also opposes universal background checks on gun purchases. Jim Morrill
