By now, most NRA members have heard that President Donald Trump will address NRA members on April 28 at the National Rifle Association Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta, Ga.
What you might not know, however, is that seating is limited. So it’s critical to get your tickets now if you want to attend the president’s speech.
NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox made the announcement last Friday via Twitter: “Honored to have @POTUS speak at the 2017 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum @NRA’s 146th Annual Meetings and Exhibits #MAGA #NRAAM2017 #2A”
On Monday, Cox went on NRATV’s “Stinchfield” to discuss the truly historic upcoming event.
“This is going to be exciting. I’m fired up as an NRA member,” Cox said. “To have President Trump there for all of us as members to talk about the things that are important to this organization and this country is really historic, and I’m really looking forward to it.
“Having the president at the meeting is going to send a great message to the country, and a great message to NRA members who worked so hard last year to help him get elected.”
Trump will address the crowd at the annual NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, which is set to begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Georgia World Congress Center. Last year at the same event, NRA-ILA’s Cox first announced that the Association was endorsing Trump for president, kicking off several months of unwavering support that in the end helped Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.
Trump will be the first president to address the annual NRA convention since Ronald Reagan did so in Phoenix in 1983. Reagan told NRA members, “You know, I've always felt a special bond with the members of your group. You live by Lincoln's words, ‘Important principles may and must be inflexible.’ Your philosophy put its trust in people. So, you insist on individuals being held responsible for their actions. The NRA believes that America's laws were made to be obeyed and that our constitutional liberties are just as important today as 200 years ago.”
Other confirmed speakers at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum include NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre and NRA-ILA’s Cox, as well as many Second Amendment champions like Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, Lt. Col. Allen West (Ret.), U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins and many more.
