NRA Endorses Donald Trump for President of the United States!

Donald Trump at NRA Leadership Forum

The chairman of the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund, Chris W. Cox, released the following statement on Friday:

Donald Trump at NRA Leadership Forum
On Friday, Trump received the a coveted endorsement from the NRA.

“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.  Mrs. Clinton has said that the Supreme Court got it wrong on the Second Amendment. So, the choice for gun owners in this election is clear.  And that choice is Donald Trump. That’s why the National Rifle Association of America is announcing our endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President of the United States.”

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation’s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.

  1. Nope! I do not vote for Progressive Liberals, even if their name is followed by an “R.” Bad move all the way around. I’ll support the Libertarian candidate thank you very much.

  2. I am still getting a chuckle over the NeverTrump-eteers, the lamestream media, the GOP establishment, and even the few trolls in this forum that would have staked their lives on Trump never getting this far. These people are choking on crow because they never anticipated having to accept something they never believed would ever happen.

    The thing is, Trump’s rise is not so much a result of our earnest support of him; rather it serves as our message to the GOP establishment that we refuse to tolerate their insider lame duck BS any longer. So in particular I appreciate watching the self-righteous arrogant GOP cronies’ smugness wiped clean off their faces as they implode and scramble over this stark reality known as “TRUMP”.

  3. “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.”

    Hyperbolic broken record. I’m still waiting for BILL Clinton to grab my guns.

    Now, as for the Republican voters’ choice for President of the United States, let’s check a couple of facts, pesky things they are. Here is the content of Trump’s tweet after President Obama spoke of the Newtown massacre.

    “President Obama spoke for me and every American in his remarks in #Newtown Connecticut.” 2:21 PM, 17 December 2012

    Additionally, before he was running for president, the brash New York billionaire called out Republicans who “walk the NRA line” and “refuse even limited restrictions” on firearms.

    “I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun,” he wrote in his 2000 book, The America We Deserve.

    But then, to garner votes from a certain demographic that is not too sleuthy when it comes to fact-checking, the guy who calls out people who “walk the NRA line” says,”“I love the NRA. I love the Second Amendment.”

    That about does it for integrity.

    1. @ Torminator,

      Regardless of his wealth, even Donald Trump admits this to be a unique and new experience – to embark upon a Country-wide mission that has afforded him the exceptional opportunity to collect stories and accumulate experiences that changed his mind about many things. Yet you choose to hang back in a world of doom-and-gloom disbelieving that a man can change; and instead challenge his changes as an issue of “integrity”.

      Normally the successful change brought about in a person’s attitude after topical discussions is usually considered a positive thing, but I guess not so much for you.

      So what exactly is your point… that the best alternative for the NRA would have been to instead endorse Hillary? With such a deceitful prospect as Hillary in mind, we can say with certainty that even if Trump is as big a liar as Hillary, at least he was smart enough to never get anyone killed with his lies.

      I’ll take my chances with Trump over Hillary any day, and as the polls are beginning to show, so will the American people.

  4. This is a good thing. Mr. (future President I hope) Trump has been the best choice all along and ESPECIALLY now.
    Though his words are not always tactful one knows where he stands. I don’t agree with anyone all the time but Mr. Trump is someone you can invite into your home for lunch and coffee and enjoy the visit. He is also one of a VERY few future Presidents I would be honored to be in his security detail.
    Not just his 2A stand but on many other issues. He will no doubt have some teething pains along the way but I believe he is an AMERICAN THRU AND THRU.

  5. The NRA is correct in their belief that Hillary Clinton would do her best to take away our God given right to bear arms, to be able to protect ourselves and our loved ones, and to keep us helpless against a rogue government. They are also right to lend their support to Donald Trump, as a Ted Cruz supporter now that my candidate was beaten by Mr. Trump I will now vote and lend my support to the one candidate left remaining who I feel will work to protect my rights as a citizen of this country and that is Donald Trump!

  6. If gun rights and immigration were the only issues, it would be an easy choice, but there are a lot more important issues and Trump does not know much about most of them. I am still undecided and might not decide until I walk into the voting booth. It does not matter anyway because I do not live in a swing state such as Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, etc.

      Then who would you vote for? Clinton or a Third party candidate who would have no chance to win and therefor whom voting for would just be giving Clinton another vote?
