President Trump’s Powerful Message To The NRA
President Trump has become the first sitting president to speak to the National Rifle Association (NRA) since Ronald Reagan in the 1980’s.
This move also sets the 45th president apart, even more, from his predecessor, Barack Obama, who became the first president to speak at Planned Parenthood, an organization that advocates for women to retain and expand on their rights to murder unborn babies.
Obama used his time at Planned Parenthood to rail against states that would dare say what a woman can or cannot do to their unborn children while Trump used his time at the NRA to rail against a federal government that has tried, in the past, to regulate and infringe on the God-given for Americans to be able to own a firearm.
“The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end. You have a true friend and champion in the White House. No longer will federal agencies be coming after law-abiding gun owners.
No longer will the government be trying to undermine your rights and your freedoms as Americans. Instead, we will work with you, by your side.
We will work with the NRA to promote responsible gun ownership, to protect our wonderful hunters and their access to the very beautiful outdoors.
You met my son — I can tell you, both sons, they love the outdoors. Frankly, I think they love the outdoors more than they love, by a long shot, Fifth Avenue. But that’s okay.
And we want to ensure you of the sacred right of self-defense for all of our citizens.”
In addition, Trump also set his administration apart from his predecessor by explaining that there is now an emphasis on enforcing the rule of law, no matter how many snowflakes’ feelings it may hurt by doing so.
“We’ve also moved very quickly to restore something gun owners care about very, very much. It’s called the rule of law.
We have made clear that our administration will always stand with the incredible men and women of law enforcement.
In fact, countless members of law enforcement are also members of the NRA, because our police know that responsible gun ownership saves lives, and that the right of self-defense is essential to public safety.”
Trump, while speaking at the NRA, also made the tried and true argument that when you take the guns out of the hands of law-abiding-citizens, through “common-sense” gun control laws, you are left with only the law-breakers being armed.
“Our police and sheriffs also know that when you ban guns, only the criminals will be armed. For too long, Washington has gone after law-abiding gun owners while making life easier for criminals, drug dealers, traffickers and gang members.
MS-13 — you know about MS-13? It’s not pleasant for them anymore, folks.
It’s not pleasant for them anymore. That’s a bad group.
Not pleasant for MS-13. Get them the hell out of here, right? Get them out.
We are protecting the freedoms of law-abiding Americans, and we are going after the criminal gangs and cartels that prey on our innocent citizens. And we are really going after them.”
Finally, the 45th president made a solemn promise to gun-owners across the country, never to infringe on their inalienable rights.
“As your President, I will never, ever infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Never ever.
Freedom is not a gift from government. Freedom is a gift from God.”
