Trump to speak at NRA/ILA meeting today

Big ChiefBig Chief Senior MemberPosts: 32,995 Senior Member
Starts at 2pm EST, I believe. So we will see what his stand is and I believe it will very pro-gun rights and the NRA will get behind him.

I'll bet he puts earlier fears away and has come around and seen the light.

So lets see what he says before condemnation. I'd rather have someone who changed his mind than on some gun issues than one who said they were for the RKBA and broke their promises as we have see in the past.

And we all know what the Witch wants to do with our gun rights.

Fox News will have it live too or some of it.

    Looks like the NRA is endorsing Donald J. Trump for President. They seem to like his views on ending gun free school zones and nationwide recognition of carry permits.

    I'm guessing we have a couple members who will be burning their NRA membership cards.:roll2:

    I listened to his remarks. Not bad and geared towards his audience. If he makes it to the White House then I hope he delivers.

    In related news, Hillary Clinton was also going to be allowed to speak in counterpoint after Trump, but there was a huge problem. Not enough ripe and/or rotten tomatoes and other produce could be procured in time so the NRA had to withdraw her invitation. :roll2: :tooth:

    Unusual for the NRA to endorse a candidate this early, but as they said a LOT IS AT STAKE in this upcoming election that will have repercussions for years to come.

    Then again, admittedly not that hard a decision between Trump and Pantsuit or Bernie for the NRA and especially to back him who came out strong for our RKBA.

    Breaking News!!!!

    Donald Trump is running for President on the Republican Ticket, and has endorsed gun rights before a crowd of NRA donors.

    In other news. The NRA has made a surprise move, and endorsed the Republican nominee for President.

    This has been a day of firsts folks.

    What do mean news? Were you honestly surprised?


    It's all well and good, let's hope he isn't full of crap.

    Although, I would like to have seen the NRA squeeze his balls a little. Ask him just What The French made him change his mind. But, that will never happen.

    Yep, the unarmed FRENCH gettin slaughtered in Paris are part of his attention gettin points about our RKBA and if they had it things could have been different, not as bad if a few in the audience were armed.

    I was surprised they endorsed him so soon and didn't even know he was a keynote speaker at this event, first I heard was about 30 minutes before it began. So yes it was news to me even though I figured they would eventually endorse him.

    What is not good about seeing him reach out to the NRA and gun owners?

    They were saying Romney and a Bush weren't endorsed until later, OCT I think for Romney because his campaign didn't want to be associated with the NRA and give the other side more ammo (no pun intended) to go after him on. Or a reasonable facsimile thereof..................

    As usual, "the Donald" is telling people what they want to hear. Some reporters called around to several of trump's hotels and resorts and found that some of his own properties are "gun free zones".

    I'll bet that gets fixed quick if he(??) or the local managers are doing that.

    Good hope it makes him investigate and see what is going on.

    The NRA/ILA was gun free too where he was speaking..... in that part in the auditorium because of the SS requirements. That was discussed on TV before he spoke.

    At any rate it looks like things are coming together for his campaign and many are publicly giving their support to him.

    He ain't perfect, far from it, none of the 17 are/were...............he is the presumptive nominee like him/hate him/despise him.

    It is what it is. Hard pill for many to swallow and creates a dilemma which I understand completely, that is it at puts them at odds with making a choice against their convictions to cast a vote for him or end up with Pantsuit or Bernie.

    I guess it probably has been like that for many people in a lot of previous elections. He does take the cake with those who oppose him, though. Then again he has gotten more votes than any other REP in recent history in the primaries, which is hard to grasp by some.

    He is a political phenomenon we haven't ever seen the likes of before.

    As you know I happen to support him and have from early on this election cycle, to the chagrin of many on here.

    Bet it doesn't. You hold your breath I won't. It could be changed with a two minute phone call. I'm still waiting.

    You believe Trump is going to start allowing firearms in federal buildings, airports, federal courts, airplanes? Again I will not hold my breath. What authority does the POTUS have in this? Very little I think. Certainly not in movie theaters and such at the state/local level.

    Of course I do..........I think he will make good changes where he can as POTUS. I think you answered some of your own questions above.

    Yes Freedom Hall at the convention was a gun free zone with the TSA doing security checks just like in an Airport, with Secret Service Agents standing by to observe. No pocket knives were allowed in and had to be checked at a trailer outside. I had a Mini Mag light I forgot was on my belt and had to take it to my car or discard it, I took it to my car and had to go back through security.

    I listened to all speakers at the Leadership Forum, Donald was first to speak and had a standing ovation when he was introduced and numerous time throughout his speech. He had the most standing ovations of all of the speakers. All of the speakers were obviously Pro Gun and Second Amendment and it was an interesting Forum. Attendance was huge, lots of interesting displays of anything related to shooting.

    If you have never attended one of the National Conventions you are really missing something IMO.

    I can't believe the people would elect a businessman to run a country that is going into debt $2 billion a day, what we need are more career politicians in Washington because they are doing such a good job.

    At least his bankruptcy's didn't require the Government to bail him out like GM's Management.

    GM's bankruptcy didn't require it either, but they did it anyway. Do you suppose Trump is more or less likely to use bailouts as a president?

    Frankly, I'm guessing had a bailout been available to him, he would have used it...the only thing better than not paying your debts at all is getting the government to force others to pay them. It's just good business practice.

    I think we're looking at more of an "Anti-Hillary" endorsement than a "Pro-Trump" one, but functionally there's no difference and really, why the hell not? It's not like there's really any competition left in the Republican party to sort out, and it makes sense to have the internal fences mended well ahead of November. The NRA is undoubtedly planning to ramp up their usual fearmongering efforts in the coming months, and it helps to have the path settled on in advance. Personally, I'm more than a little tired of it - have been for years - but the stakes are justifiably high this time around. Even if there's further fratricide in the GOP at the convention, it's not like the necessary path is hard for the NRA to follow.

    I dunno Bigslug, the NRA tells of the worst case scenario and if who they point out had their ways, well it would come to pass. Like Pantsuit.

    They see the slippery slope to gun control behind every "Common Sense" measure the gun grabbers get passed or new Govt regulation policy designed to whittle away our RKBA.

    I'll stick with the NRA and their attention grabbing statements any day over the lies the likes of Pantsuit and the Brady Bunch.

    The NRA has to do the fearmongering thing because only 5,000,000 gun owners feel they need to pool their resources to fight for the rights of the rest by supporting, with actual money, the efforts of an organization that has been doing it right since 1871.

    The latest numbers indicate that 41% of all American households have guns in them, making the 5,000,000 a rather small percentage. Without that fearmongering, apathy from the common man would have destroyed our 2A rights decades ago.

    And despite the fear mongering there are still only 5,000,000 donating. Maybe they should try something else.


    Maybe they should not side with the Dems on stuff. HR 5175 Disclose Act.

    Maybe I will give them money again, when that worthless donkey Wayne Lapierre is bye bye.

    Maybe I will one day ride a unicorn, and Trump will be a conservative.

    Without "fear mongering" there would probably be 10 members and we'd all have target rifles locked at the club. The NRA is an organization that has been around since 1871 has a HUGE track record of wins. No other country in the world has such a successful organization fighting for the right to bear arms AND IT SHOWS!!!

    Unlike some folks here (or at least in their minds) no one has a 100% track record or bats 1000. If they compromised or made decisions that I don't agree with along the way I still have to take a look at them as a whole as opposed to shunning them for a few mistakes without a realistic game plan to continue supporting my cause. Oh and that worthless monkey took the NRA from 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 members. Tough to call that "worthless" in my book.

    Not only just in this country, they are in a lot of countrys trying to put forth the message. It's easy to sit back and bad mouth somebody for the way they do things, but unless you've walked in their shoes you have no clue. and that, Donkey-Monkey, whatever, since he's been in office he has doubled the size of the NRA. It is the most powerful Gun Lobby in the world. You don't hear the Libtards bad mouthing or even mentioning the other Gun Rights Organization, because the left isn't afraid of them. The NRA is the only one that puts fear in their hearts. People just don't know or appreciate what doing their job entails. Sometimes there's compromise in anything. But what counts is the score at the end of the day, and so far, not just so good but Very good. We still have guns, and the Senate is not going to consider affirming Obummer's choice for the SCOTUS, that's real power speaking there.

    Next time you get a call from the NRA asking for a Donation, give em $10 bucks. They'll appreciate it and it all adds up. Wayne La Pierre earns every nickle we pay him. I get tired of people bad mouthing him. He's a tireless spokesman for our rights.

    You're right. Everyone makes minor mistakes, and compromises. Pissing all over the First Amendment and wiping your donkey with it , so you can continue to enrich yourself on the backs of the membership, is a minor thing. I will write them a check tonight.

    There is no need for the second Amendment if you willingly toss out the rest.

    This is clearly the work of the NRA, and the Donkey. It has nothing to do with the Republican electorate, already ready to toss out all the bums that have affirmed most of the Obama agenda, after they were elected to do the opposite.:roll:
