"FCC Chairman Ajit Pai was honored by the National Rifle Association with a handmade Kentucky long gun as part of its Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award to mark his efforts to repeal most of the FCC’s net neutrality rules.

Pai was given the honor during an appearance on Friday before the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he appeared on a panel along with fellow FCC Republicans Michael O’Rielly and Brendan Carr.

Carolyn Meadows, a second vice president of the NRA, said that the award is for someone who has “stood up under pressure with grace and dignity and principled discipline.” She noted that the award is not given every year, but Rush Limbaugh, Phyllis Schlafly, Vice President Mike Pence, Sheriff David Clarke and Roy Innis were past recipients.

“We cannot bring it on stage,” she said, adding that it will be “housed in our museum with a plaque to you. When you can receive it we will give it to you…You will love it.””*
