On Friday, President Donald Trump vowed to fight for the Second Amendment rights of Americans as he spoke to members of the National Rifle Association. While Trump claimed to be a champion of gun rights, however, his record says something entirely different.
During the speech, Trump claimed that the "left is coming for your guns," and he's correct. But so is the right, and so is Trump.
As politicians and anti-gun rights activists continuously chant, "we don't want to take your guns," behind the scenes — in only a year — politicians have been working overtime to limit your right to bear arms.
What Trump's speech to the NRA on Friday proves is the incredibly short memory of his support base. Have they all forgotten that Trump recently made one of the most damning attacks on the Second Amendment of any president yet?
