President Trump Declares He Will “Protect Our Second Amendment”

posted on February 25, 2017

Speaking at his triumphant return to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), President Donald Trump received a rousing welcome from the estimated 10,000 attendees. However, brought the crowd to its feet for a standing ovation like no other:

“By the way, we are going to protect our Second Amendment.”

When the cheers subsided, he continued, “You know, Wayne [LaPierre] and Chris [Cox] are here from the NRA … they’re great people. They love our country. The NRA has been a great supporter. They love our country.”

NRA has a substantial presence at CPAC. NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox introduced Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday evening. NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre followed President Trump on Friday, preceded by The Blaze host (and NRA special assistant to the EVP for public communication) Dana Loesch on Thursday. On Friday, Katie Pavlich moderated the Armed and Fabulous panel, which included NRA contributors Kimberly Corban, Antonia Okafor and Kristi McMains, as well as 2013 Ms. Wheelchair USA, Ashlee Lundvall. Frequent NRA Annual Meetings speaker Sheriff David Clarke is scheduled to close the conference on Saturday.
