Donald Trump During 9th NRA Speech: Time for ‘Great Restoration of Freedom’

At the NRA convention, former President Donald Trump gave a speech stressing the importance of protecting gun rights in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.

He argued the Second Amendment is necessary for public safety and self-defense given criminals will not surrender their guns.

“Let there be no doubt, the survival of our Second Amendment is very much on the ballot. It’s under siege,” Trump said.

He added, “We need the Second Amendment for safety. Forget about going hunting and all the things you do — we need it for safety. Because you know the bad guys are not giving up their guns. The bad ones are not giving up their guns.”

Trump said, “If [Biden] gets four more years they are coming for your guns, 100 percent certain.”

“We’re the party of common sense,” he said.

Trump claimed Democrats want to confiscate firearms, pointing to actions against gun dealers under Biden.

He suggested Biden would further erode gun rights if given another four years.

Democrats “want to take away your rights,” he noted, adding, “I know that better than anybody — they want to take away my rights — better than anybody, worse than Al Capone. [He] got indicted twice; I got indicted four times.”

Trump praised Republicans for opposing confiscation and vowed Americans will never surrender their freedom.
