Trump Declares ‘Eight-Year Assault on Second Amendment’ Over

“You came through for me, and I am going to come through for you.”

Triumphantly, Trump told the enthusiastic crowd, “The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end. You have a true friend and champion in the White House.”

“You came through for me, and I am going to come through for you,” he added.

Trump spent the early part of his speech thanking the NRA for backing his candidacy and helping him win the White House. He promised, “You’re my friends, believe me. To the NRA, I can proudly say I will never, ever let you down.”

The president thanked the NRA for its activism for the military, law enforcement, defending the American flag, and the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. He was able to rouse much applause during his speech, especially when mentioning his cabinet members. He certainly raised the roof when he called out “Pocahontas,” a.k.a. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), warning she could be a candidate in 2020 who “is not big for the NRA.”

So, it was a historic day for Trump and a day where gun rights were fully endorsed by the White House. Eight years was much too long.

Watch the president’s full speech above.
