David Hogg: NRA Is 'Scared' Because of the Support We've Gotten

The Latest Trump mentions Parkland shooting in NRA speech

His remark came after he temporarily strayed from their strong anti-gun control message in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida - only to later return to the fold.

Trump's full-throated support for the NRA appeared to soften somewhat in February, after the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 people.

"We are going to have to outlaw immediately all vans and all trucks, which are now the new form of death for the maniac terrorist", Trump said during his speech.

"Your Second Amendment rights are under siege, said Trump in his address to the NRA at its annual meeting. Like it or not, we don't care if you are a Democrat or a Republican, if you are supported by the NRA, you don't stand with kids, you stand with the gun manufacturers and people making money off this fear and tragedy that's perpetrating itself". His gun comments were woven into a campaign-style speech that touched on the Russian Federation probe, the 2016 campaign, his efforts in North Korea and Iran and his fight against illegal immigration. This makes the second year in a row that President Trump's visit is one for the history books. "'Bye, bye, gotta get on the plane'". "My problem is with the NRA and how they are the gun lobby that has bought off our government and therefore threatened our democracy and our safety as American people, and our children's safety".

Trump has long enjoyed strong backing from the NRA, which spent about US$30 million ($40 million) supporting his presidential campaign.

David Hogg, another Parkland shooting survivor and student activist, responded on Twitter.

He did not name the hospital he was talking about. "Yes that's right, they don't have guns, they have knives". He used his finger as an imaginary gun and said, "They took their time and gunned them down one by one".

"I know plenty of teachers who really think that there are many of things that we can do to protect our schools rather than putting more guns into them", he continued on. "It proves that his heart and his wallet are in the same place".

"Law-abiding gun owners want to keep firearms out of the hands of those who pose a danger to themselves and to others", Trump said Friday.

Those words rattled some Republicans in Congress and sparked hope among gun-control advocates that, unlike after previous mass shootings, tougher regulations might be enacted. He then pushed off the issue of age restrictions by assigning it to a commission.

"France expresses its firm disapproval of President Trump's comments about the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015 and demands that the memory of the victims be respected", the foreign office said in a statement.

Trump initially expressed enthusiasm for measures to close loopholes for gun buyers seeking to avoid the background check system, raise the age limit for buying rifles, and find ways to seize guns temporarily from people reported to be risky.
