Trump Scolds Gun Owners At Rally For…

Former President Donald Trump recently impressed the “rebellious” gun-rights advocates Saturday at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Dallas, pleading with them to go to the polls in November’s presidential election via NY Post.



“With your vote I will stand strong for your rights and liberties,” he told about 8,000 NRA members who packed the main hall of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center to capacity for his 100-minute keynote address.

However, he gently rebuked them for their lackadaisical voting habits as he sought to re-animate and expand his victorious 2016 coalition.

“You’re rebellious people, aren’t you? Gun owners don’t vote,” he noted.

“I think you’re a rebellious bunch,” he continued as he accepted the powerful group’s endorsement.

“But let’s be rebellious and vote this time, okay?” he said.

This marked Trump’s ninth appearance before an NRA crowd, and his second this year, as he continued to court a powerful lobby that has given Trump its full-throated support since his first White House run in 2016.

He took a stop in Dallas and dovetailed with the launch of “Gun Owners for Trump,” a coalition organized by the Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign to boost voter registration among gun owners, sign them up for absentee ballots, and sell them lawn signs and other merch.

“President Trump believes that every American has a God-given right to protect themselves and their family and has proven through his actions that he will defend law-abiding gun owners,” according to the group’s website.

Trump also took a shot at independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose campaign is drawing voters away from both major parties.

“RFK Jr. is radical left, he always has been,” Trump said.

“He calls you a terrorist group, and I call you the backbone of America.”

He blasted President Biden as a “Manchurian candidate” and a “threat to democracy.

“Biden wants to disarm our citizens while he floods our country with violent criminals,” he said, as he decried the massive migrant influx of the last three years.

Trump has made the defense of gun rights a central pillar of his 2024 campaign.

“We need that Second Amendment for safety,” he told the crowd in Dallas.

“Because the bad guys are not giving up their guns,” he said.

“And Crooked Joe has a 40-year record of trying to rip guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens.”
