President Trump has left no doubt in the minds of his loyal supporters that his heart is in the right place when it comes to defending our 2nd Amendment Rights.
He is about to do something that hasn’t been done by a US president in 35 years.
Donald Trump will be the first president to speak at the annual meeting of the National Rifle Association (NRA) since Ronald Reagan did it in 1982. Clearly, the president understands that the right to keep and bear arms has been an essential bulwark in holding onto our liberties. Liberties the Founding Fathers were well aware of, after having defended themselves from British government intrusion.
The Political Insider reported:
It’s no secret that President Donald J. Trump is a strong supporter of gun rights and the Second Amendment. Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump pledged to “totally” protect the Second Amendment and reverse Barack Obama’s gun control executive orders, as well as abolish gun-free zones, which the president called a “catastrophe.”
Since taking office three months ago, President Trump will reaffirm his commitment to the Second Amendment, becoming the first president since Ronald Reagan to speak at the National Rife Associations’ annual meeting.
President Trump’s strong relationship with the NRA is well-known, and the gun rights organization formally endorsed him for president in 2016, urging Americans to “unite” around Trump, and vote against anti-gun Hillary Clinton.
According to Breitbart:
Trump’s speech to the NRA will occur two months to the day after he signed a repeal of Barack Obama’s Social Security gun ban which would have allowed the Social Security Administration to strip beneficiaries of the Second Amendment rights without due process. The speech also comes nearly two months after his Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke, ended an Obama-era ban against using lead ammunition on federal lands.
On April 13, 2017, Breitbart News reported that the Trump administration has been quietly rolling back other Obama-era gun controls behind the scenes. McClatchy reported that federal agencies have “narrowed the definition of ‘fugitive,’” thereby limiting the number of people prohibited from gun possession because they are included in a fugitive database. Trump “officials have also signaled that they may no longer defend the Army Corps of Engineers’ ban on carrying loaded firearms and ammunition on federal lands.”

The reason why Trump beat Hillary is because of his strong support for the Constitution, something that has stuck in the craw of liberals, who would like nothing better than to abolish it and start over.
Trump’s presidency is a testimony to the fact that the majority of Americans detest liberal values and have faith in his promise to help keep our Constitutional Rights alive by his presence at the next annual meeting of the NRA!
