Less than two decades ago, Donald Trump voiced criticism of the National Rifle Association, and that led some people to believe he would not get the NRA's important stamp of approval on his current bid for presidency.

According to ABC News, though, the NRA has just endorsed the presumptive GOP nominee for the highest office in the land.


NRA executive director Chris Cox made the announcement during Trump's appearance at a National Rifle Association conference in Louisville, Kentucky.

Cox had a few words for those not rallying around Trump, saying, "Now is the time to unite. If your preferred candidate dropped out of the race, its time to get over it."

In support of the role of firearms in our society, Trump said, "We're getting rid of gun free zones [in schools and military bases], I can tell you."
