In his own words, President Donald J. Trump supports the Second Amendment, reinforcing the fact that law abiding citizens have the right to bear arms. On May 20, 2016, during his presidential campaign, speaking at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, President Trump pledged his support to the NRA. Reiterating his pledge to a packed room, he said, “I will not let you down.”
President Trump took an aggressive stance during his first week in office, implementing swift action on a number pledges he made to the American people during the course of his campaign. It should come as no surprise – from his request to review and identify the flaws in Obamacare then replace them with more affordable, lower deductible, multi-choice option plans for everyone; to his high-priority request to review and expedite best practices for moving forward with infrastructure projects – that he is fast tracking and making good on all of his previously outlined campaign promises.
Considering the speed with which he’s implemented his executive orders to secure our borders and review our immigration processes, there should be no doubt that President Trump will also implement executive orders censuring the past administration’s previous actions of gun control, which undermine the Second Amendment.
With impending executive actions on the horizon, the president has the opportunity to seal his pledge to the NRA and the millions of law-abiding Americans who responsibly own and carry guns for personal protection, hunting, and for sport. Obama’s previous actions that compromised Americans’ rights to legally possess and bear arms, per the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, will hopefully soon be repealed.
Stay tuned for breaking news updates on his expected soon-to-be penned 2A-related orders.
