Trump Set For Big Boost From Significant NRA Ad Buy

“Donald Trump supports my right to own a gun.” 

That’s what Kristi McMains tells the camera in a national television spot this week—part of the largest advertising push to date for the National Rifle Association’s support of the Trump campaign. Against a stark black backdrop, McMains says her right to carry a firearm saved her from a knife-wielding attacker in a Louisville parking garage, adding, “Every woman has a right to own a gun if she chooses. Hillary Clinton disagrees.” 

The 26-year-old lawyer shared more of her story with Fox News: A man followed her off a garage elevator, then began chasing her, stabbing at her with a serrated knife. She fought back, finally managing to grab her gun from her purse and shooting her attacker multiple times, saving her life. The ad follows an earlier NRA spot featuring Kimberly Corban, a woman raped in her apartment who now speaks out for the Second Amendment rights of all women.
