The National Rifle Association of America announced its support for the re-election of President Trump, saying he had “fulfilled” his promise to protect the rights of Americans under the Second Amendment.
“On behalf of the NRA’s 5 million members, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to support his re-election as president of the United States of America,” the association said in a letter attached to a July 16 tweet.
“You have done more than any president to protect the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The NRA stands behind you and your administration,” added the renowned American Guild, which had already endorsed Trump in 2016, in its letter.

The NRA also highlighted Trump’s commitment to upholding the constitutional rights that ensure the freedom of all Americans and the protection of their families.
The heartfelt letter thanks the president for preserving the traditional disposition of weapons, which has also played a role in the recreational arena for centuries.
It also praises Trump’s listing of gun sales as essential during the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) pandemic, which allowed sales to soar.
The NRA’s attitude stands in stark contrast to that of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who has opposed the carrying of weapons in the United States for decades.
Joe Biden is aggressively pushing for gun control and since his presidential campaign he has supported a national gun registry and a ban on the popular AR-15 rifle, even going so far as to declare the NRA an enemy to be defeated, as The Washington Free Beacon pointed out.
The Second Amendment to the Constitution states: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” and Trump is one of its advocates.
Trump pointed out how the NRA defends “our God-given rights, without exception, without fault, and without apology,” at the 2019 National Rifle Association (NRA) annual convention at the Indiana Convention Center April 25.
He said that together they are “fighting for the eternal values that have built and sustained our nation. And our nation is bigger today than ever before. Stronger, richer–we’re doing better than ever. We are great Americans. You’re doing a great job.”
He mentioned the rights and values that many consider to be the inalienable rights of all Americans. The belief “in the right to self-defense and the right to protect your family, your community, and your loved ones.
“We know that faith and family, not bureaucracy, are the center of American life. And above all, we know this, in America, we don’t worship government, we worship God,” President Trump reiterated on the same occasion.
