In RNC Acceptance Speech, Trump Vows To Safeguard Firearm Freedoms

posted on July 23, 2016

At the Republican National Convention Thursday night, Donald Trump officially accepted the Republican presidential nomination. In his acceptance speech, he vowed to lead America back to safety, prosperity and peace. “We will be a country of generosity and warmth,” Trump vowed. “But we will also be a country of law and order.”

Trump outlined the current threats facing Americans, many exacerbated by the policies of President Barack Obama and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state. But he was quick to offer a path out: one that included protecting our nation’s police, stemming the tide of illegal immigration, and—most notably—defending our right to keep and bear arms. 

Promising to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left by the passage of Second Amendment defender Justice Antonin Scalia with someone “of similar views and principles,” Trump announced, “This is one of the most important issues decided by this election. My opponent wants to essentially abolish the Second Amendment. I, on the other hand, received the early and strong endorsement of the National Rifle Association, and will protect the right of all Americans to keep their families safe.”
