Gun rights group NRA endorses Trump for president


WASHINGTON: The National Rifle Association on Friday (Saturday in Manila) endorsed Donald Trump for US president, saying it was time to unite behind the Republican or “kiss your guns goodbye” if Hillary Clinton is elected. The NRA’s endorsement of a Republican nominee is no surprise. But the timing is notable because it came months earlier than in the previous two election cycles, suggesting the nation’s largest gun-rights advocacy group was seeking to help the Republican Party unite conservatives fractured over Trump. The group’s chief executive Wayne LaPierre said, “If she gets just one Supreme Court nomination, Hillary’s court will hold that the [US Constitution’s] Second Amendment is a government right, not an individual right, and you can kiss your guns goodbye,” LaPierre said.
