The eldest son of former President Donald Trump said that people can no longer rely on the government or the police to protect themselves and urged them to buy a pistol and teach themselves to use it during a Monday appearance on his Triggered podcast.
Then, Trump Jr. appeared to make reference to how, on October 7, when Israel declared war and launched its heaviest-ever bombardment on Gaza, the Islamist militant group Hamas used paragliders as part of their extensive operations against that country.
According to the Israeli military and information provided to the Associated Press, more than 1,400 people had died in Israel as of Tuesday. The AP reported that at least 2,778 people had died in Gaza, according to local authorities.

During the video, Trump Jr. urged people to learn how to defend themselves while suggesting that Americans need the right to purchase an AR-15-style firearm in case “people in motorized paragliders come into your home.”
“You can never depend on the government to save you in a time of need. when seconds count. Cops are just minutes away. You need to be armed. You can only trust yourself and keep your family safe,” Trump Jr. said.
