After presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump received an endorsement from the National Rifle Association Friday during its annual conference, he made a bombshell announcement that, ironically enough, perfectly highlighted why the NRA chose him in the first place.
“We’re getting rid of gun-free zones, OK,” Trump said to a standing ovation. “We’re getting rid of them.”
Boom. It is no wonder the NRA endorsed him — because he understands that prohibiting law-abiding Americans from carrying firearms does nothing but empower criminals, something liberals have never seemed to be able to wrap their heads around.

And speaking of liberals, Trump also took some scathing digs at presumed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at the NRA event.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton is the most anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment candidate ever to run for office,” he said, according to CBS News.
“In trying to overturn the Second Amendment, Hillary Clinton is telling everyone — and every woman living in a dangerous community — that she doesn’t have the right to defend herself,” he continued. “So you have a woman living in a community, a rough community, a bad community — sorry, you can’t defend yourself.”
The presumptive nominee also reminded folks that Clinton supported President Barack Obama’s criminal justice reform agenda “to release the violent criminals from jail.” And for supporting this initiative, she of course earned yet another nickname: “Heartless Hillary.”
Last but not least, he took shots at both Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, calling them “heartless hypocrites” for refusing to disarm their own bodyguards.
“Let’s see how good they do,” Mr. Trump said. “Let’s see how they feel walking around without their guns and their bodyguards. In the meantime, nobody else can have the guns, right?”
Wrong, though everybody besides the Clintons and their naive followers already know that.
