Chuck Norris advocating for the Second Amendment beside house sign that reads, ‘We don’t dial 911’
World martial arts champion, longtime television and movie star and WND columnist Chuck Norris is working with the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund to ask voters to remember that their Second Amendment gun rights are important on Election Day.
Norris has created an ad which has been posted on the NRAPVF website explaining the importance of the issue.
“I’m Chuck Norris, a black belt patriot,” the ad says. “If some thug breaks into my home I can use my roundhouse kick, but I prefer he look down the barrel of my gun.”
“And millions of other law-abiding families also rely on their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms,” he continues. “Some politicians say they support your rights but unfortunately their voting records say otherwise. Protect your rights on Election Day.”
Norris, who also recently released a new book called “Black Belt Patriotism: How to Reawaken America,” advises in the video for voters to “check the candidates’ records and see who stood up for your families and who protected the criminals.”
He’s standing next to a sign on the side of his home while he’s speaking, a sign which states, “We don’t dial 911.”

While Norris doesn’t advocate for a particular candidate in the video, the NRA website has an option to submit a zip code and get a listing of candidates for that district who advocate for the Second Amendment.
The NRA’s Political Victory Fund has endorsed the GOP ticket of Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin on its site.
In a message from NRA president Wayne LaPierre, he said, “In just a few days, on November 4, gun owners will be presented with a very clear choice of a pro-Second Amendment versus an anti-Second Amendment presidential ticket. John McCain and Sarah Palin versus Barack Obama and Joe Biden represents a stark contrast for the future of our freedom.
“In that choice, one fact is foremost:
“The next president, by filling inevitable vacancies on the U.S. Supreme Court, will determine the continued existence of our Right To Keep and Bear Arms,” he said.
“The landmark Heller decision by the U.S. Supreme Court – which struck down the D.C. gun ban and its attendant criminalizing of armed self-defense in the home – was decided by a one vote margin, in a 5-4 decision. The court’s decision was aided by briefs filed by Congress and states – briefs signed by John McCain and by Palin’s state of Alaska,” LaPierre continued.
“Barack Obama and Joe Biden refused to sign in support of the Second Amendment. But for President George W. Bush’s two high court nominations, it could easily have gone the other way. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Associate Justice Samuel Alito truly made the difference. Keep in mind that Barack Obama and the man who is now his running mate, U.S. Sen. Joseph Biden, voted against confirming both.”
The political victory fund also warned Biden “was radically opposed and used every trick in the book including the threat of a filibuster to kill the confirmation process (for Bush’s Supreme Court nominees).”
During his own failed presidential bid, Biden said, “The next president is likely to name at least one, if not three new Supreme Court justices. We should start this national debate by recognizing the truth – that Roberts and Alito have turned the court upside down … . I guarantee you that will change,” according to the NRA.
Officials said the ad will be used nationally on cable networks but also in 10 battleground states including Colorado, Nevada, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The NRA website also includes other videos, including one referencing Obama’s condemnation of Americans with traditional values as those people who “cling” to their “religion and guns.”
Norris’ book gives a no-holds-barred assessment of American culture, tackling everything from family values to national security. More than a cultural critique of what’s wrong with our nation, “Black Belt Patriotism” provides real solutions for solving our problems, moving our country forward, and changing our nation’s course for the better.
