Donald Trump NRA speech

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has told its attendees that Pistols, rifles and all other firearms are not allowed at the National Rifle Association’s annual Leadership Forum in Houston, Texas, where former President Donald Trump is scheduled to take the podium this Friday.

The pro-gun organization declared on its website that “weapons of any kind” would not be allowed inside the hall. It also listed several other items, such as laser pointers and signs among things that were prohibited.

The NRA said the hall was under the jurisdiction of the United States Secret Service as Trump would be speaking during the event. Trump is one of several speakers who are slated to attend the conference this week. Others include Texas Governor Ted Abbott and Senator Ted Cruz, both Republicans and fierce pro-gun advocates.

The conference is going ahead in the shadow of Tuesday’s mass shooting at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school that killed at least 21 people — including 19 students.

The Robb Elementary School massacre was the deadliest mass American school shooting since the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in 2012.
