Trump expected to address NRA's annual meeting

Therefore, "firearms and firearm accessories, knives or weapons of any kind will be prohibited in the forum prior to and during his attendance". He was not one of the politicians rated on the NRA's most-recent grades in 2010. Fla., shooting, immediately ripped into the NRA for becoming what he said was "a hilarious parody of itself".

Parkland shooting survivors and their families, who have been battling the NRA over gun-safety reforms, blasted the NRA for not sticking to its guns when it comes to its own events.

A parent whose 14-year-old was killed in the Parkland school massacre, Fred Guttenberg, tweeted, "On so many levels, this is enlightening". "However once they placed on a conference, the weapons are a priority?"

It will mark the 147th year the NRA has held the conference. The NRA doesn't ban these things, the Secret Service did during President Trump's speech.

"You may disagree. but in my opinion the very people that claim to protect the [Second Amendment] should never host an event that requires disarming the good guys. Sad".
