President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak in Atlanta this month at the National Rifle Association’s annual convention. He will be the first president to address the group since Ronald Reagan.

The April 28 visit is to the NRA’s Leadership Forum and spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said the organization is “excited to once again have a president who respects the Second Amendment.”

The NRA endorsed Trump in May after he promised to appoint judges who would support gun rights expansions.
