Former NRA Prez Speaks Out On Clinton, Trump

posted on August 19, 2016

After serving the National Rifle Association well during his two-year term as president, Birmingham, Ala., attorney Jim Porter is proving he’s not content to sit idly by and let important political matters take care of themselves.

At a recent gathering of the Hoover, Ala., Chamber of Commerce, Porter addressed the importance of this November’s election to law-abiding gun owners. Contrasting candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Porter said: “It's a pure choice you have between whether you believe you have a Second Amendment right or you don't. It's that clear.”

Porter also told those in attendance that law-abiding gun owners and other members of the NRA aren’t responsible for violent crime. “There's not one NRA member who has ever been guilty of perpetrating any of these recent heinous crimes,” he said. “And in fact, most of the ones who are perpetrating, if they're registered anything, they're registered Democrats who do that. Go look it up.”
