WH on Trump Speaking to NRA: 'We Support 2nd Amendment'

  • Illinois gun owners and supporters file out National Rifle Association applications while participating in an Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day convention before marching to the Illinois state Capitol in Springfield Ill

"Due to the attendance of the Vice President of the United States, the U.S. Secret Service will be responsible for event security at the.Leadership Forum", the NRA said in a statement.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Cameron Kasky also weighed in on the matter, writing: "The NRA has evolved into such a hilarious parody of itself".

Dallas police are expecting "numerous" protests during the four-day convention, and warn that additional road closures are possible. "Can someone explain this to me?" Several emails were attached to the NRA's filing, including one dated February 28 saying, "Next time I hope it's someone in your family looking down the barrel of a gun or shot in the back trying to flee some great Floridian".

In April 2018, some onlookers detected a whiff of a double standard when the National Rifle Association announced the security restrictions for their annual Leadership Forum to be held in Dallas, Texas, in early May. "No excuses for this...it makes us look stupid".

It is fair to call the NRA and those gun rights activists hypocrites for accepting the rules of a government entity that ban guns in a place where guns were previously allowed. "Don't complain about your eroding credibility and people calling you "fake news" when you publish things like this", she wrote. It's Secret Service SOP and they supersede all start and local control.

A White House official said Monday that Trump will attend the group's annual meeting.

But the irony of a gun ban during a convention about firearms was not lost.

But at recent rallies, Liasson reported, Trump has been warning his supporters that if Democrats win in November, they will take away people's guns.

Both Trump and Pence will appear alongside other speakers during the convention's Leadership Forum to deliver commentary on political events, express their love for gun rights and gun rights advocacy, and rail against "the media".
