WH on Trump Speaking to NRA: 'We Support 2nd Amendment'

After a deadly school shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, Trump suggested he was open to new gun control measures.

Matt Deitsch, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who has helped organize many protests including "March for Our Lives" took to Twitter asking for an explanation as to why the "NRA wants to protect people who help them sell guns, not kids".

In reality, the NRA was not responsible for the decision to bar attendees from carrying guns at the 2018 Leadership Forum. "According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public".

Texas allows licensed open carry of handguns and open carry of long rifles. According to the NRA, we should want everyone to have weapons when we are in public. "But when they put on a convention, the weapons are a concern?" Several emails were attached to the NRA's filing, including one dated February 28 saying, "Next time I hope it's someone in your family looking down the barrel of a gun or shot in the back trying to flee some great Floridian".

In April 2018, some onlookers detected a whiff of a double standard when the National Rifle Association announced the security restrictions for their annual Leadership Forum to be held in Dallas, Texas, in early May. "Obviously even republicans and so called leaders don't trust the 'good guys.' I realize it's the VP, but still makes our whole argument look foolish". After all, they have all these good guys with guns to protect them. "No excuses for this...it makes us look stupid".

Guns were also banned during Trump's appearance at the NRA's annual meeting in Atlanta past year.

As Liasson reported, the NRA spent more than any other outside group on Trump's presidential campaign - more than $30 million.

The irony was not lost on some Parkland students and parents.

Trump is scheduled to speak Friday at the annual gathering in Dallas.
