Trump Wins NRA Endorsement, Blasts Clinton on Gun Stance

The National Rifle Association threw its weight Friday behind Donald Trump, as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee personally assured the group’s members he would protect Second Amendment rights if elected – and claimed that likely Democratic rival Hillary Clinton would threaten them.

The billionaire businessman and leaders of the nation’s powerful gun lobby joined forces as they amplified warnings that the Supreme Court vacancy only raises the stakes for gun owners in this election. Trump, speaking to the NRA-ILA (Institute for Legislative Action) forum in Louisville, Ky., even challenged Clinton on Friday to release a list of her potential Supreme Court nominees, after he did so earlier this week.

“I would like for Hillary Clinton to put a list together also, and I want to see what the list consists of,” he said. “It will be day and night, it won’t be good for the people in this room and the country.”

He charged, “Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment.”

He addressed the NRA-ILA forum moments after Executive Director Chris Cox announced the group’s Trump endorsement.

In a written statement, Cox also said: “The stakes in this year’s presidential election could not be higher for gun owners. If Hillary Clinton gets the opportunity to replace Antonin Scalia with an anti-gun Supreme Court justice, we will lose the individual right to keep a gun in the home for self-defense. … So the choice for gun owners in this election is clear. And that choice is Donald Trump.”

    I saw the film clip of the NRA introducing Mr. Trump and all of the attendee’s seemed to like him they have 5 million members so if all of them vote for Mr.Trump in Nov that’s 5 million more than crooked Hillary will have. There was protesters in New Mexico where Mr.Trump was having a rally there were a few inside the hall that the cops grabbed an tossed out. It looks like Senator Sessions is one of the people that has been picked for possibly Mr.Trumps VP this is the one guy that has been fighting against illegal immigration for years I hope he takes the job I couldn’t think of anybody better to be Mr.Trump’s running mate because when the two terms are up Senator Sessions could very easily step into the White House and continue to control our Borders and deportation that should have been done the past 8 years and was not.
