  • The NRA is OK with gun control to protect POTUS and Veep

"NRA banned nothing. The media does this every year". After all, they have all these good guys with guns to protect them.

"Publication of her identity would expose her to unwanted public attention and censure for exercising her right to challenge a statute denying her a fundamental constitutional right", the NRA said. Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was among the 17 students killed in the Valentine's Day shooting, wrote, "According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public".

While it's a Secret Service security protocol, the move triggered criticism of the NRA from their loudest opponents of late - students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and their families. "This is the Secret Service". She referred questions about the Secret Service's policies to that agency. Texas is an open-carry state.

The NRA posted a notice on its website saying that the arena will be under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Secret Service during the leadership forum.

As Liasson reported, the NRA spent more than any other outside group on Trump's presidential campaign - more than $30 million.


Trump is scheduled to speak Friday at the annual gathering in Dallas.

He has told the gun rights group that it came through big for him and he would come through big for the NRA.

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.

NRA members are also to hear from Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, the pro-Trump black social media propagandists known as Diamond & Silk, who have accepted money from white nationalist Paul Nehlen, a neo-Nazi candidate running to replace Speaker Paul Ryan in the Wisconsin congressional election.
