Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- The executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA), Chris W. Cox, released the following statement on President-elect Donald J. Trump’s victory:
“On behalf of the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) five million members and tens of millions of Second Amendment supporters, the NRA congratulates President-elect Trump on his hard fought victory.
“Voters sent a loud and clear message that our gun rights are not for sale. Despite the unprecedented efforts by New York City billionaire Michael Bloomberg and the gun control lobby, the Second Amendment prevailed. In the face of threats against their constitutional freedoms, NRA members and Second Amendment supporters rallied to elect a pro-gun president.”
“Trump’s victory repudiates the assertion by gun control advocates that the political calculus regarding the Second Amendment has changed.
“A special thank-you to NRA members and supporters who made the difference in this important election. Freedom scored another victory because of your efforts.”
