Trump Says Overhaul is Needed at NRA Conference

At the National Gun Rifle Association’s convention last week in Houston, TX, Trump gave a compelling speech that railed against gun control and addressed the need to focus on mental health and school safety measures. 



After a moment of silence in honor of those who were killed in last week’s shooting in Uvalde, he said the nation needed to unite around a common solution but called out Democrats for their radically progressive agenda on gun control.

Texas Republicans are pushing back on proposed legislation by Democrats to further infringe upon the 2nd Amendment, which many Republicans believe will eventually lead to the confiscation of guns from private citizens.

Let’s not pretend that those on the left are just talking about limiting one class of gun or one category of ammunition,” Trump said. “They’re not doing that. We all know they want total gun confiscation, we know that this would be the first step,” he added. “Once they get the first step, they’ll take the second step, the third, the fourth, and then you’ll have a whole different look at the Second Amendment, which is, by the way, totally under siege. But we stopped it for four years. We stopped it.”

Trump went on the explain that mental health is what we should be focusing on, not taking guns away from responsible American citizens.
