NRA members say Trump needs more support from Republicans in Congress

ATLANTA — For years the GOP pitch to conservative voters in general, and gun rights supporters in particular, was: We might have the House and Senate, but we need you to get us a president who can finally sign all these bills into law.

Now that Republicans control the White House, activists at the National Rifle Association’s annual meetings said it’s President Trump who could use new Republicans in Congress.

“I’m disappointed in Paul Ryan, period,” said Rosemary Pereira of Florida. “He’s not pushing hard enough for his party and doing his job — on everything.”

“He’s too slow. He’s kind of, like, sitting back waiting for things to happen,” said Ray Pereira, Rosemary’s husband and a fellow retiree. “And I don’t think that’s his job. I think he needs to get out there and push and work for this administration.”
