The National Rifle Association has officially endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States.
Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, made the endorsement immediately before Trump walked on stage.
“Now is the time to unite. If your preferred candidate dropped out of the race, it’s time to get over it,” Cox said earlier in his remarks. The news of the endorsement came shortly before Trump addressed the group at their convention in Kentucky.
After accepting the endorsement, Trump promised to preserve the Second Amendment and abolish gun-free zones across the country if elected.
Currently, the 2016 election is a toss-up between Hillary and Trump. The latest CBS News/New York Times poll projected that if the election were today, Hillary would win by a margin of 6%. A Fox News poll projected Trump would beat Hillary by 3%.
As if it’s possible, things are about to get even more interesting.
