Vice President Mike Pence is offering a vigorous defense of the Second Amendment in an address to the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Dallas.
Pence is pointing to the Trump administration’s work to address school security and support for changes to the background check system, as well as arming teachers.
The vice president says “the quickest way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
He is faulting media outlets for not telling “the whole story about firearms in America” and the role of “firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens” making communities safer.
Pence was speaking ahead of President Donald Trump’s address to the NRA.
