LI: NRA Formally Endorses Donald Trump for President

From my post over at Legal Insurrection:

Today at its Annual Meeting the NRA formally endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States.  Immediately following Trump gave a nearly 30 minute speech to a packed room and was met with frequent applause and several standing ovations.

The following reflects my rapidly-typed contemporaneous notes as Trump spoke.  I’ve phrased them as if I were quoting Trump, and mostly that’s the case, but there is also some necessary paraphrasing here and there when he spoke too quickly for me to keep up.  The paraphrases accurately reflect the gist of Trump’s comments.  There are also some passages of Trump’s talk that I didn’t capture in my notes.  Finally, I came into the speech after it had begun, but believe I only missed a couple of minutes.
