Sarah Palin will deliver the keynote speech at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting this spring, the group has announced.

Palin, who has often spoken of hunting in Alaska, will speak to the convention’s May gathering in Charlotte, N.C. The speech gives her the opportunity to burnish her credentials to a key segment of the Republican Party.

Gun owners–and the NRA in particular–are very active in Republican primary politics.

“Governor Palin is one of the most requested speakers in America today,” Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s executive director, said in a statement announcing Palin’s speech. “She’s an outdoorsman, hunter and a steadfast supporter of our Second Amendment freedom. We are pleased to have a fellow NRA member speak at our 139th annual meeting in Charlotte this May.”
