Trump will take on the NRA after threatening to roll back gun control laws if elected

Amid fears that he would reverse gains made by gun control activists if elected to a second presidency this fall, Donald Trump will address the National Rifle Association’s annual convention on Saturday.

The former Republican president will take the stage in Dallas after threatening to roll back Joe Biden’s White House gun regulations and expand gun rights — at the cost of American lives — if voters propel him to victory over the Democratic incumbent elevate president. November.

Trump’s message is a sharp contrast to Biden, who signed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act in 2022 and has praised it as evidence of his commitment to gun safety, among other things.

Congress passed that law after a series of deadly, high-profile mass shootings, which nevertheless continue to occur. But it was the first time in nearly three decades that the U.S. has passed a new major gun law at the federal level, expanding background checks for the youngest firearm buyers and investing in community violence intervention programs.

Trump has taken to the campaign trail and has openly expressed his desire to impose a law that would force states to recognize concealed firearm permits issued by other states. And his answer to the school shootings that the US has seen consistently throughout modern history is to arm teachers and fund programs that train teachers in how to shoot effectively.

Most Americans disagree with Trump’s approach to gun control. Only 12% of Americans believe gun laws should be relaxed, while 56% say they should be tightened and 31% say they should be kept as they are, according to an October poll conducted by Gallup.

The NRA is holding its convention less than three months after its former leader Wayne LaPierre — as well as other group executives — were found liable in a lawsuit that focused on the organization’s excessive spending.
