Gun rights advocates say Donald Trump is their candidate for the White House

Donald Trump heads this month to the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Kentucky riding a wave of strong support from the country’s gun owners, who say he’s just what they’re looking for in November.

While pro-lifers, tax-cutters and others in the conservative coalition are struggling with Mr. Trump as the likely GOP presidential nominee, gun rights leaders say there’s no hurdle for them.

“I have not seen anything on the issue of guns that’s caused me to hesitate with him,” said Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League.

“He seems to be the real deal on guns,” Mr. Van Cleave said. “I’ve not seen anything where he’s done anything but [be] very much in line with what gun owners want.”

    I can understand why they wouldn’t like Hillary but trusting Trump not to change his mind in the second amendment my be risky. Now that he has knocked out the real conservatives he is backing down from a number of his stands on things. How long till he backs down on guns. He is becoming more liberal every day.

    The choice for the NRA is clear. Hillary Clinton wants to take away guns from the good guys, while she has no effective answer for all the guns in the hands of the bad guys. Donald Trump supports the Second Amendment, while also standing up for police departments across the country, since they are the ones who face armed thugs will illegal weapons every day. Hillary’s hypocrisy is evident when she tries to force law-abiding people to give up their right to self-protection, while she is protected 24/7 by armed bodyguards. How in the world did this woman get to be a prominent figure in this country?
