Trump pledges fealty to NRA gun lobby

"You'll have plenty of those Democrats coming over", Trump said.

"To get a driver's license, you have to take a driver ed course", Feinblatt said on a call with media ahead of the NRA conference. The mega-weight organization's support was something Trump relied on heavily on the campaign trail, reminding the crowds that turned up to watch him speak that he would "save" the Second Amendment from being gutted by Hillary Clinton. But an upstart Democrat, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff, used an anti-Trump wave to raise more than $8 million ahead of an April 18, multiparty primary and nearly won the seat outright, finishing almost 30 points ahead of Handel, the top Republican vote-getter.

Trump urged his audience to be "vigilant" toward those who attack the right to bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment of the US Constitution.

Trump began his speech by praising Karen Handel, the Republican candidate in the June special election runoff for Georgia's 6th Congressional District.

Harvard Law School in the 1990s touted Warren, then a professor in Cambridge, as being "Native American".

"The Second Amendment is on the ballot in November". Noting that he's the first sitting president since Ronald Reagan to address the forum, Trump thanked the NRA for its endorsement after the GOP primaries.

Democratic U.S. Rep. John Lewis was among those rallying the crowd at Woodruff Park, urging supporters to "be fearless, be bold" in pushing for gun control. "You have a true friend and champion in the White House", EFE news quoted Trump as saying in a speech at the NRA's annual convention in Atlanta, Georgia.

Trump's trip to Atlanta and a handful of actions he's taken during his first 100 days send clear signals.

But Trump seems to agree with Brown's assessment, and he said as much as a presidential candidate.

"It may be Pochahontas, and she is not big on the NRA", Trump said of Warren, who had once said she had some Native American ancestry.

"You came through for me", Trump said speaking of the NRA's strong support for his campaign past year.

They included Steve Hagen, who called the NRA's push for federal legislation to make any state's concealed-carry permits valid nationwide "the dumbest thing I've ever heard".

This means "always" supporting "the incredible men and women of law enforcement", many of whom are also members of the NRA "because our police know that responsible gun ownership saves lives and that the right of self-defense is essential to public safety", Trump said. He also chose a Supreme Court justice that advocated for gun reform. Trump noted the impending election early in his remarks.

"We have become the David to the NRA's Goliath", Watts said.
