Trump vows to protect freedoms of gun owners in NRA speech

Trump vows to protect freedoms of gun owners in NRA speech

Trump's appearance at the NRA convention was remarkably similar to his campaign rallies.

As Trump spoke to the NRA on Friday, there was some evidence his friendly stance towards gun owners may be leading to slowing sales. "No longer will the government be trying to undermine your rights and freedoms as Americans", the president said.

Sky's US Correspondent, Cordelia Lynch, said Mr Trump's speech was created to get hard-line conservatives on his side. Trump did take time to ask Atlanta voters to vote for Karen Handel in the upcoming runoff for Georgia's 6th Congressional District, to revisit his Election Night victory, and make vague assurances about never letting anyone in the audience down.

"I will never, ever infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms", Trump said.

Trump said on Friday that under his administration the "assault" on the second amendment of the US Constitution, which secures the right of the people to own guns, has come to an end. "U.S.!", cast gun ownership as a constitutionally protected freedom that needed no additional restrictions.

One very passionate Trump supporter, Hoke Johnson, delivered a powerful message about the need for our country to unite behind our new president.

Warren seems to be able to get under Trump's skin more than other Democrats. "You have a true friend and champion in the White House". "We must be vigilant, and I know you are all up to the task".

However Warren has defended herself against attacks, writing in her 2014 book A Fighting Chance, "My brothers and I knew who we were".

The President also criticised Washington for going after law-abiding gun owners instead of clamping down on criminals, drug dealers, traffickers and gang members. You know, it's nearly hard to believe, but back then the fate of individual freedom truly hung in the balance.
