NRA Awards Rifle To FCC Chairman Ajit Pai At CPAC For His “Courage Under Fire” In Ending Net Neutrality

The Hill reports:

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai received the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) “Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award” at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. The NRA-sponsored award was given to Pai in recognition of months of heavy criticism over his successful push to repeal the agency’s net neutrality rules. Pai led the push to repeal the rules, which were overwhelmingly supported by the public, in December.

“Ajit Pai is the most courageous, heroic person that I know,” said Dan Schneider, the executive director of the American Conservative Union, while introducing the FCC chairman. “He has received countless death threats. His property has been invaded by the George Soros crowd. He has a family, and his family has been abused in different ways. Chairman Pai, thank you for everything you’ve done.”

The award is a “handmade Kentucky long gun.”
