Donald Trump championed gun rights and promised to respect the Second Amendment in a speech at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting Friday.
On his 99th day in office, he became the first sitting president to address the NRA since Ronald Reagan. He thanked gun owners for their support in the election and promised to “never, ever let them down.”
“Let me make a simple promise to every one of the freedom-loving Americans in the audience,” Trump said in Atlanta. “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.”
