This past week President Trump once again spoke to the gathered membership of the National Rifle Association (NRA) at their annual leadership forum.
Last year, he became the first sitting President to speak to the organization since President Reagan did so more than 30 years ago.
This year, the President attended despite the negative attention the NRA has been receiving in recent months due to several high profile mass shootings (most recently the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida). However, when Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the President’s decision to speak at the event, she said that while “safety” was of utmost importance to the President, “We also support the Second Amendment, and strongly support it, and don’t see there to be a problem with speaking at the National Rifle Association’s meeting.”
The President, never one to bow before the voices of his critics decided to speak to the members of the NRA and promised his continued friendship, despite the forces of leftwing fascism attempting to undermine the 2nd Amendment.
