On April 28th, President Trump will become the first U.S. president to speak at an NRA convention since Ronald Reagan did so in 1983.
The NRA endorsed Trump’s candidacy last May after then candidate Trump addressed the NRA’s annual forum in Louisville, Kentucky.
Jennifer Baker, an NRA representative, said “The NRA is honored to have the president address our annual meeting at the leadership forum. We’re excited to once again have a president who respects the Second Amendment.”
Two previous Republican presidents never chose to address the NRA during their terms. George H.W. Bush in fact went so far as to withdraw his membership in the NRA in 1995 because of a fundraising letter he received from the gun-rights organization that had referred to some federal agents as being “jack booted thugs”.
Mr. Trump, despite seeming to reverse field on some of his campaign promises, has thus far been steadfast in his support of the second amendment. Considering the alternative of Hillary Clinton, who would most assuredly have done everything she could to erode gun rights – including packing the US Supreme Court with liberal, activist judges – gun owners can finally breathe a little easier with a pro-second amendment president in office.
