President Donald Trump is speaking at the National Rifle Association’s convention in Dallas on Friday because “we also support the Second Amendment,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday. “Safety and security is a big priority for the administration, but we also support the Second Amendment — and don’t see there to be a problem with speaking at the National Rifle Association meeting,” she said at the daily briefing. Trump is scheduled to speak Friday at the annual gathering in Dallas. Vice President Mike Pence will also deliver the convention’s keynote address later that day. The NRA has come under fire after the Parkland, Florida, shooting in February that killed 17 people and injured 17 others — and protesters are planning a “die-in” outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center downtown where the meeting will be held, according to reports. The NRA endorsed Trump’s 2016 election bid and spent $30 million supporting him. The association has railed against tighter gun laws.
