White House criticizes NRA ahead of lobbying group’s convention


White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday criticized the National Rifle Association, after a reporter asked about the lobbying group’s plan to hold a convention on Friday in Houston, Texas, following the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. “It’s not about the convention. What is inappropriate is that the leadership of the National Rifle Association has proven time and time again that they are contributing to the problem of gun violence, not trying to solve it,” Jean-Pierre said during a press briefing.
