Everytown Statement on President Trump Speaking at This Week’s NRA Convention
NEW YORK – Today, Everytown for Gun Safety released the following statement on reports that President Donald Trump will speak at this week’s NRA convention in Dallas.
Vice President Mike Pence is also set to speak at the NRA convention on Friday.
STATEMENT FROM JOHN FEINBLATT, PRESIDENT OF EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY:
“The NRA’s $30-million-dollar investment in the Trump campaign is paying off—as millions of Americans demand common-sense gun laws, the President will reportedly fly to Dallas to celebrate an organization that has vehemently opposed them. You’d think a President who pays such close attention to the polls would realize that recommitting himself to the NRA’s dangerous agenda is a losing bet.”
