(CNSNews.com) – In a speech to the National Rifle Association, President Donald Trump said that NRA members are “true American patriots” who take pride in America’s history, respect its heritage, and “proudly stand for the National Anthem.”
“We have pride on our history and respect for our heritage. We put our hands on our hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance, and we all proudly stand for the National Anthem. We proudly stand,” Trump said.
He said Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) and NRA President Wayne LaPierre are “real patriots” who don’t get “the kind of adulation” that they deserve.
“I want to thank you, the true American patriots of the NRA, who defend our rights, our liberty, and our great American flag. Thank you, thank you very much. The people in this hall have never taken our freedom for granted, never, and you have never stopped fighting for our beloved Constitution, incredible people,” Trump said.
“You give your time, your energy, your vote, and your voice to stand strong for those sacred rights given to us by God, including the right to self-defense. And now thanks to your activism and dedication, you have an administration fighting to protect your 2nd Amendment, and we will protect your 2nd Amendment,” he pledged.
“Your 2nd Amendment rights are under siege, but they will never, ever be under siege as long as I’m your president. All of us are here today united by the same timeless values. We believe our liberty is a gift from our creator and that no government can ever take it away. We believe in the rule of law, and we support the men and women of law enforcement,” the president said.
Damn Right! Mr President!
