The National Rifle Association said Wednesday it was concerned about “headwinds” facing pro-gun candidates in upcoming Senate elections but remains confident in its decision to support Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.
Hillary Clinton has far greater unfavorability with the public than the FBI, the National Rifle Association and Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to a new poll by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal.
The National Rifle Association said on Wednesday it would be happy to meet with Republican nominee Donald Trump to discuss how to keep terrorists from obtaining firearms but that it would not change its position.
“We are happy to meet with Donald Trump,” Chris Cox, head of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, told the Washington Free Beacon in a statement. “The NRA’s position on this issue has not changed.”
