USA -(Ammoland.com)- Donald Trump announced Friday that he has selected Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate, ending days of feverish speculation and recruiting to the GOP ticket a soft-spoken and seasoned conservative who could help unify the divided Republican Party.

“I am pleased to announce that I have chosen Governor Mike Pence as my Vice Presidential running mate,” Trump wrote in a Twitter message delivered at 10:50 a.m.

Pence is seen as a safe political option for Trump, who also considered candidates who mirror his big personality such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. But Pence made clear this week that he's more than willing to play the role of attack dog, strongly criticizing Hillary Clinton during a rally with Trump.

In May of 2013 card carrying NRA member and Indiana Governor, Mike Pence, addressed the crowd at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, an event of the 2016 NRA Annual Meetings in Louisville, Kentucky. Originally aired 5/20/16.

I’m also a single issue voter. It’s too late for rhetoric. If your care about the RTKBA, then you need to vote for Trump.

It makes no difference who Trump picked as his VP there will be people who don’t like the person. They will nit pick about his position on religious freedom,right to life,firearms,etc. There is no perfect candidate Trump could had picked. I wanted him to pick Newt although I don’t agree with him on everything. I don’t really know a lot about Pence but he is a very strong proponent of the 2A and our constitutional right to keep an bear arms. In this upcoming election I am a one issue voter and that is the 2A and our constitutional right… Read more »

Mike Pence may be good on NRA issues but he self-castrated on religious freedom. The saying is the 2nd Amendment protects the others. What is the use if you give away religious freedom without even thinking about firing a shot, even with your mouth. We need Mike Pence to grow a pair. He is afraid of the media and special interest groups. Will he someday cave on the 2nd Amendment and support ‘reasonable’ firearms restrictions due to media and special interest group outcry ?

I wish Trump had chosen someone else. We need brains in the government, especially now after 16 years of personal agenda type behavior that has brought this country to the brink of revolution/civil war. Both G.W. Bush and B. Obama have have in their own ways, abused the people and the concept of this country to the point that the Constitution is barely adhered to. GW took us into a deadly war which we will not win; it’s impossible. He did it based on his own wishes and lied to us. Loretta Lynch has trampled on our freedom of speech,… Read more »
