The news broke on Sunday. President Donald J. Trump will be addressing the National Rifle Association's Annual Meeting in Dallas this week. The event, which kicks off on Thursday, will have close to 80,000 people attending the three-day event. Eight hundred exhibitors will also set off shop, displaying the latest in firearms and firearms technology to those who support freedom and the U.S. Constitution.
The event will also have scores of seminars on firearm laws, concealed carry, how to engage law enforcement, and crime prevention strategies. For history buffs, there will be a seminar on the firearms used during the Vietnam War. Vice President Mike Pence has already been slated to speak, but there were rumors over the weekend that the president would also address the convention, according to White House officials. Well, the NRA has now confirmed this: President Trump will be speaking at NRAAM:
“I am honored to welcome President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to the NRA Convention in Dallas this Friday,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA. “While I’m sure there will be a meltdown on the Left, we will be unapologetic in our celebration of American Freedom.”
The meeting will also be a time for supporters of the Constitution and Second Amendment freedoms to unite, rally, and be reminded of the fight that’s before us. The tragic school schooling at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida set off the latest offensive on our civil rights. Instead of focusing on school safety, the anti-gun Left has hijacked yet another tragedy to push their agenda. They’ve also recruited high school students to quarterback their efforts. In times past, other states, normally anti-gun states, passed laws that further constrained gun rights. The silver lining was that it was contained to the blue states, those with already anti-gun laws on the books. Now, we’re seeing this activism leach into our areas.
