Vice President Mike Pence just had the nerve to say being at the @NRA’s annual meeting is part of his pro-life agenda. What about the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have been killed or injured by gun violence? #NRAAM2019 #NRAAM

“We’re draining the swamp,” says Vice President Pence, even though the @NRA is under investigation for its ties to Russia and for exploiting its nonprofit status. #nraam #NRAAM2019

Donald Trump on alleged “coup” of his administration: “I didn’t need a gun for that one, did I?” #NRAMM #NRAAM2019

Donald Trump at the @NRA annual meeting: “We don’t worship government. We worship God.” 🤔🤔🤔 #nraam #NRAAM2019

Donald Trump talking about socialism and the economy. Hasn’t mentioned that his administration banned bump stocks, or that the @NRA wasn’t able to pass its priority legislation through Congress: Concealed carry reciprocity and deregulating silencers. #NRAAM2019 #nraam

“Democrats want to take away your guns,” Donald Trump at the @NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis. Again, he doesn’t mention his administration’s ban on bump stocks. #NRAAM2019 #NRAAM

“The bad guys aren’t giving up their guns. And you’re not going to give up yours either.”

Donald Trump neglects to mention that the @NRA helped arm the bad guys. #NRAAM #NRAAM2019

Donald Trump announces he’s sending a request to the US Senate to stop the treaty ratification process for the UN Arms Trade Treaty during his speech at @NRA annual meeting. It's a treaty to stop human rights abusers from obtaining firearms. #NRAAM2019 #NRAAM

The @nra seems to think the story about an armed citizen who shot at the gunman in Sutherland Springs, but didn’t kill him or stop him from shooting and killing 26 people and wounding 20 others is a win. #nraam #NRAAM2019

Donald Trump: "Gun owners make our communities stronger and make our nation safer." Really? Then why does America have the highest rates of gun violence of any high income country? Opioid abuse is a crisis, but gun violence is a source of pride? #NRAAM #NRAAM2019

Donald Trump walks off to "You Can't Always Get What You Want." Given that the @NRA hasn't passed priority legislation since 2016, gun manufacturers have a $100M plus profit deficit, and the gun lobby lost in the midterm elections, it's a pretty appropriate song. #NRAAM #NRAAM19
