JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

The National Rifle Association officially endorsed Republican Donald Trump for President Friday afternoon when the billionaire addressed members in Louisville, Kentucky.

“I will not let you down,” Trump told the NRA conference crowd. He also attacking Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, calling her the “most anti-gun” candidate to ever run for office.

Trump also contended that the attack in San Bernardino, California that left 14 dead would have been avoided if the victims had been armed.

“If we had guns on the other side, it wouldn’t have been that way. I would have: Boom!” Trump said, firing a finger gun at the crowd.

The billionaire also touted his gun-toting credentials, saying he has a concealed carry permit, is a longtime member of the NRA, joking that his hunting enthusiast sons “have so many rifles that even I get concerned.”
