NRA Endorses Trump

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Donald Trump slammed Hillary Clinton as “heartless” for backing restrictions on gun ownership that he said would leave Americans in high-crime areas unable to protect themselves. He also challenged Clinton to follow his lead and release a list of potential Supreme Court nominees.

Trump’s remarks came at the National Rifle Association convention in Louisville, Kentucky. The gun rights’ organization endorsed the presumptive Republican nominee ahead of his remarks, despite Trump’s previous support for measure like an assault weapons ban that the NRA vigorously opposes.

Trump centered much of his remarks on Clinton, claiming she would seek to “abolish” the Second Amendment if elected president. He called her a “Heartless Hillary” – a new nickname for the likely Democratic nominee – for backing restrictions aimed at reducing gun deaths, saying her proposals would instead law-abiding citizens at risk from criminals.
