Transcript for NRA Lobbyist Speaks About Protecting Second Amendment Rights at RNC
Rector of the NRA's institute. Legislative action. Chris class. I want to talk to unite. About a very personal freedom. Your right to protect your life. Because as much we don't like to think about it we live in dangerous times. We're worried and we have reason to be. Because our government has failed to keep a safe. You have to be able to protect yourself and your feet late. And that's what the Second Amendment is all about. Imagine a young mother cold weather baby. When a violent predator kicks the Doran. He's a three Tom loser who was released from prison early because some politician wanted to show their compassion. What's she going to do. She'll dollar. And brain. The police will do their best to get there quickly. But they're average response time was eleven minutes. So the question is should she be able to defend herself with a firearm and our own home. Of course. Friends that question. Is on the ballot in November. And here's why. Eight years ago the Supreme Court ruled that we have a fundamental. Individual right to protect ourselves and our families with a firearm and our own homes. They should have ruled it none did nothing. But the Second Amendment serve. But just one vote. After justice scalia's debt that boat is gone. In case you're wondering where Hillary Clinton stands. She said quote the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. Think about that. All the Supreme Court said was that you have the right to protect your life in your own home. But Hillary says they're wrong. It's that simple but Hillary Clinton's Supreme Court means you're right to own a firearm. Is gone. Make no mistake. This election is not about the next four years. It's about the next forty years. So voting for Hillary Clinton or not. It's simply not an option. What so outrageous. Is that for the rest of her life Hillary Clinton. Never even think about dialing 911. For the past thirty years she has it taken on wall but now her bathroom break without an. I'm there to protect their. It's so it's easy for her to dismiss a right that she will never happen. Use. But for the rest of us the choice to own a car arm is ours to make. In America there cannot be one set of rules for the clintons. And another set for us. But here's Hillary's problem. American women. Are the fastest growing group gun owners. Millions owned by our own. Millions. And millions more thinking about it. It's not Hillary Clinton who says women should have that choice. It's Donald strong. And Donald Trump has a life member of the National Rifle Association. So were his sons Don and Eric. Because we're the largest and oldest civil rights organization in America. We fight for the rights of all Americans regardless of race religion. Or sexual orientation. Because the right to protect your life is the most precious right you have. Friends. The five million men and women of the NRA wolf fight without apology. For your right to protect your life. But we're on the kuss. We're on the cusp of losing this great American freedom. And with it this great nation. The only way we save it. The only way we save it is by electing Donald Trump the next president of the United States thank you god bless.
