Sanders campaign down to less than $6 million in cash

He was endorsed by the National Rifle Association last night.

The NRA's endorsement comes months earlier than in the previous two election cycles, which suggests that the nation's largest gun-rights advocacy group wants to help the Republican Party unite conservatives over Trump. "I am so hoping that gun owners would be willing to take the lead in pushing for the kind of changes that we need", Clinton said on the campaign trail.

The Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising effort between the Clinton campaign, the DNC and state parties, is now diverting millions of dollars to flow to coordinated campaigns in Florida, Wisconsin, Nevada, Colorado, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and North Carolina, sources with knowledge of the plan say.

Trump also accused Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of being hypocritical for having armed Secret Service agents around them while calling for stricter gun control measures, and called on the Clintons to "let their bodyguards immediately disarm". "The only way to save our Second Amendment is to vote for a person you know: Donald Trump".

Like Trump, Sen. Rand Paul called for getting rid of gun-free zones at the event.

"But it also means we... have to combat the culture of gun violence", she said. He spoke about the 2015 shooting in Chattanooga, Tenn., that killed five people and occurred in a gun-free zone on a military installation.

Throughout his speech, Trump dubbed her "Heartless Hillary". Clinton favors stricter background checks and holding dealers and manufacturers liable for crimes committed with their weapons.

Trump centered much of his remarks on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, claiming that she wants to abolish the Constitution's Second Amendment, which gives citizens the right to bear arms.

"All the political rhetoric right now, and Twitter and Facebook ... is polarizing us, telling us we're in one camp or another", said Jonathan Metzl, a professor at Vanderbilt University who studies guns and mental health.

'Paris is, probably in the world, the toughest place to have a gun, ' he said.

He bragged about his concealed carry permit and awkwardly boasted that his sons Don Jr and Eric own so many firearms "that sometimes even I get a little bit concerned".

In a statement shortly after the group announced its endorsement of Trump, Cox said "the stakes in this year's presidential election could not be higher for gun owners".

Trump addressed the meeting, tossing out line after line of red meat to gun rights supporters.

The dual appearances underscore the opposing positions the candidates have staked out on gun rights and safety, the prominent role the issue might play in the general election and the national policy implications for the next president.
