Antonia Okafor: 'Voting for Obama Was My Mistake'

Antonia Okafor, campus carry advocate and founder of EmPOWERed, said she is proud to call the National Rifle Association one of the greatest civil rights organizations in history. 

"No matter the color of your skin, no matter where you come from, no matter your economic status or your education level, whether you're young or old or a man or a woman, if you're a law-abiding citizen of this country, you have a constitutional right to your Second Amendment and a God-given freedom to protect yourself and your family," Okafor said at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, part of the 146th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Atlanta.

Okafor went on to say that she's proud to fight alongside the NRA for her rights and the rights of all citizens, but she admits that her journey has been "long and evolving."

"You see, I voted for Barack Obama...twice," she said. "I now know I was wrong. Sometimes we have to learn things through our mistakes. Obama was my mistake. He did nothing for our country, nothing for my community and nothing for my future."
