As the presumptive GOP nominee, Donald Trump is gathering more and more endorsements. Today, he received the endorsement from the National Rifle Association.
That might not be so earth-shattering, but what is interesting is the comment from Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “Now is the time to unite. If your preferred candidate dropped out of the race, its time to get over it,” Cox said before Trump took the stage at the NRA’s annual convention Kentucky today.
ABC News reports, Trump has spoken about his support of the Second Amendment regularly on the campaign trail and is a gun owner himself.
Trump has spoken about guns regularly and has pledged to get rid of “gun-free zones” at schools and military bases.
“My first day, it gets signed, OK? My first day. There’s no more gun-free zones,” he said in January.
He has also cited gun control as being partly to blame for mass shootings like those in Paris and San Bernardino, arguing that the attackers could have been stopped more quickly if more bystanders had guns.
Well, chalk another one up for The Donald. Let’s hope our side continues with the unity. We cannot allow Hillary Clinton into the White House!
