Donald Trump Forms “Second Amendment Coalition”

posted on November 5, 2016

In his speech at this year’s NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said, “Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment … we’re not going to let that happen, I can tell you that right now. We’re going to nourish it; we’re going to take care of it.” 

On Thursday, Trump took the next step in keeping that promise when he announced the formation of the Second Amendment Coalition, which will advise Trump and vice presidential nominee Mike Pence on Second Amendment issues during their time in the White House. The group is chaired by Donald Trump Jr., an avid hunter, outdoorsman and conservationist, along with Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA-ILA. A group of 62 co-chairs, including congressmen, industry officials, accomplished hunters and activists will provide additional support and input. 

“My father defends the Second Amendment so that [your family] can take care of themselves when someone much stronger, much meaner and much more vicious than them tries to break into their home,” Trump Jr. said. “It’s not just a hobby or something I do on the weekends. It’s a lifestyle, and as my father often says, ‘It’s about self-defense, plain and simple.’”
