(NationalSentinel) Constitution: The founding fathers believed that Americans’ right to keep and bear arms was so important they made it the Second amendment – right after recognizing and protecting the right to free speech, assembly and government redress.
Barack Obama and his Left-wing administration, however, did not place as much importance on gun rights, and it showed: In every way imaginable, the Obama administration worked to limit or impede or block personal firearms ownership.
Those days are over, however, as President Donald J. Trump informed the annual meeting of the National Rifle Association earlier today in Atlanta.
“The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end,” Trump told the members of the National Rifle Association, assuring them that they now “have a true friend and champion in the White House.”
“I will never, ever infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms,” Trump said. “Never ever.”
That was welcome news to NRA attendees and the tens of millions of American firearms owners. But it should not have come as a surprise. Trump discussed his support for the Second Amendment frequently on the campaign trail and pledged to do his best to protect and defend it as president.
Trump is the first president to address the NRA’s annual meeting since Ronald Reagan in 1983.
