DONALD TRUMP TO SPEAK AT NRA EVENT NEXT WEEK
On Friday, April 14, Donald Trump is scheduled to make a highly anticipated appearance to the annual conference of the National Rifle Association in Indianapolis.
The former vice president Mike Pence, the Republican governor of Florida Ron DeSantis, former governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley, and others will all be speaking at the event, either in person or via video message, according to The Hill on Tuesday.
Aside from the news conference, which is expected to bring a sizable throng of NRA members and supporters, this will be Trump’s first public speech since his arraignment.
Trump’s attendance at the conference is particularly relevant considering recent headlines as a passionate advocate for gun rights. According to Reuters, the U.S. Justice Department has petitioned the Supreme Court to uphold a federal law that makes it illegal for those who are subject to restraining orders for domestic violence to purchase weapons.
The issues of guns, gun regulation, Second Amendment rights, and their interrelationship have been widely covered in the press recently.
There was the recent mass shooting in Tennessee, which, according to Fox News, prompted a large number of protesters to gather at the State Capitol building to call for an end to “gun violence.” In response to the recent massacre in Nashville, where a heavily armed 28-year-old killed three children and three adult staff members last month at a private Christian school, a swarm of protesters gathered.

According to reports, the suspect went to the same school. The attacker was promptly shot and killed by police on the site. Trump continues to be a favorite of proponents of gun rights and has previously received the NRA’s support. His presence at the conference is probably going to invigorate the audience and inspire support for Second Amendment rights.
