"This election changed politics in this country in a way that it hasn't been changed in our lifetime." Past NRA President David Keene called the November election a "cultural revolt" and leading the charge, he said, were NRA members—the people who care about the Second Amendment and traditional values.
In an exclusive interview with Ginny Simone, Keene discussed the message that the election sent and what's next for gun owners. And he was very clear about what it didn't mean: "That does not mean that gun owners get a free ride. This is not a war that you win, it's a battle that you win."
"I think gun owners played a bigger role than at any time in our modern political history."David KeeneNRA Past President on the 2016 Presidential election

"This election was an affirmation of the vitality of the American democracy. The people spoke and said we want to restore American values. We want a President, we want a Congress, we want a Supreme Court that will do that."David KeeneNRA Past President on the 2016 Presidential election
