Almost all of these disfigured minds share the same profileTrump was expected to say at the annual meeting of America’s biggest gun lobby, the National Rifle Association, in Houston, according to excerpts of his speech seen by Reuters.

Main absences

As a sign of the unease surrounding the convention, several country stars have decided not to attend. Among them was singer Don McLean, known for his song “American Pie,” who felt it would be “disrespectful” for him to perform there. Another notable absence was that of the manufacturer of the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle used by the shooter.

In the halls of the sprawling convention center lined with manufacturer booths, thousands of gun enthusiasts milled about examining weapons and rejecting new restrictions.
