Over the last few years, North Carolina Lt. Governor Mark Robinson has become a favorite among conservatives and for good reasons.
Robinson first rose to prominence because of a viral video of him defending the Second Amendment and gun rights at a town meeting and he has never backed down.
His speech at the NRA convention this weekend was fantastic.

NC’s Mark Robinson delivers fiery address at NRA forum, vowing to protect gun rights
North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson delivered a fiery defense of gun ownership at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Houston, vowing to continue fighting against supporters of stricter gun laws who he said want to disarm all Americans.
“I am here today, much to the chagrin of many of the leftists back home in my state, who thought I should cower and stay home and not come here,” Robinson said during the NRA Institute for Legislative Action’s Annual Leadership Forum on Friday…
Robinson spoke for a little over 10 minutes on Friday. He said he was “heartbroken” by the shooting in Uvalde, and called for schools across the country to be provided with as much security as is provided to places like airports and banks.
He also claimed, to loud cheers from the audience, that federal lawmakers calling for more stringent gun regulations were “determined to leave the law-abiding, patriotic citizens of this nation unarmed, and defenseless.”
One of the best parts of the speech is where Robinson says schools should be protected the same way our elected officials in Washington are, with the best of everything. Watch it all below:
