NEWTOWN, Conn – -(Ammoland.com)- President-elect Donald Trump will nominate Alabama U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general, several news sources are reporting today.
Sessions was the first senator to endorse Trump and served as a trusted adviser during the campaign.
Prior to the Senate, Sessions served as Alabama attorney general in the mid-1990s and was the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama during the Reagan administration.
The attorney general’s position is arguably the most important of the cabinet positions with regard to the firearms industry.
His A+ rating from the NRA validates Sessions’ strongly pro-gun record as an elected official.
