At NRA Convention, Donald Trump Pledges to Return as Most Pro-Gun U.S. President

HeadlineApr 17, 2023

In Indianapolis, top Republican hopefuls for the 2024 presidential nomination joined the three-day annual meeting of the National Rifle Association over the weekend. Headlining the event was Donald Trump, who received a two-minute standing ovation before declaring himself “the most pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment president” in U.S. history.

Donald Trump: “With me at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, no one will lay a finger on your firearms, just as took place for four years when I was your president. … I will also create a new tax credit to reimburse any teacher for the full costs of a concealed-carry firearm and training from highly qualified experts.”
