This year’s gathering of gun supporters takes place amid national outrage over the Shoot First laws that have increased violence all across the nation – and given legal cover to people like George Zimmerman. The NRA – with the help of Wal Mart and the American Legislative Exchange Council – was instrumental in getting Shoot First laws passed in 25 states across American since 2005 – nearly tripling the rate of so-called “justifiable homicides” in the state of Florida.

But despite the backlash against the NRA – Mitt Romney will be on hand at this year’s conference to appeal to an important Republican constituency – gun owners. Expect a lot of lies about how President Obama is trying to take away everyone’s guns – despite the fact that guns right have expanded considerable under President Obama’s watch.

If a blockbuster new report from Newsweek is any indication - a Donald Trump presidency would be one giant conflict of interest.

The problems stem from Trump's massive business empire - the Trump Organization.
