Trump’s NRA nod may secure female votes


The NRA’s endorsement of Donald Trump and his vow to be the sheriff of the Second Amendment could secure him coveted votes with a group he’s struggling to win over — women.

“There’s quite a few women who own guns ... and they will take a hard look at who is supporting their right to protect themselves and their families,” said Jim Wallace of the Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts.

He said Trump’s promise yesterday at the National Rifle Association convention in Louisville, Ky., to protect gun owners’ rights hits home.

“Hillary Clinton has come out aggressively against gun owners,” Wallace said. “Gun owners look for somebody who protects their rights and Donald Trump is heading in that direction.”

Trump targeted Clinton as he accepted the NRA’s backing.

“Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump said in his televised speech. “We’re not going to let that happen.”


  1. Heh! He didn't wait long.... :)

    ".....Trump on Friday also called for Clinton’s Secret Service protection to disarm. “Let’s see how they feel walking around without their guns and their bodyguards,” he said."

    1. Love it! Thanks.

  2. Doesn't "pro choice" include women who choose to carry the means to protect their own bodies against the robber, the rapist and the murderer? That is empowering women and protecting their most basic human right--and all of us.
