ON THE GOP PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN TRAIL – Today, as the GOP’s newfound darling, Donald Trump, addressed the NRA’s Leadership Forum in Louisville, Kentucky, a solitary reporter, observing remotely, scoped in on Trump as he promised the NRA’s top gunslinger, Wayne LaPierre, and Kentucky's senior senator, Mitch McConnell, that everybody who votes for him will receive a free automatic weapon.
“I promise you this,” Trump said, “it won’t cost you a single dime, because I am gonna buy those automatic weapons for you out of my casino earnings.”
Trump also blamed Hillary for the crash of Egypt Airlines 804.
Trump’s promise came shortly before a Secret Service agent shot a man near a security checkpoint close to the White House after he brandished a gun and refused orders to stop. The man is in a local hospital and has no record with the Secret Service.
