President Trump took to Twitter not long after he attended a trip where he addressed the National Rifle Association Annual Meeting in Indianapolis. He accused the New York Governor Andrew Cuomo putting the NRA under siege.
There are many attacks from politicians who are in favor of extensive gun control, but this one caught the president’s undivided attention as he is backing the NRA.
Trump sent out two Tweets almost back to back when he spoke his mind while advising the NRA at the same time. “The NRA is under siege by Cuomo and the New York State A.G., who are illegally using the State’s legal apparatus to take down and destroy this very important organization, & others. It must get its act together quickly, stop the internal fighting, & get back to GREATNESS – FAST!”
The second Tweet came an hour later, “…People are fleeing New York State because of high taxes and yes, even oppression of sorts. They didn’t even put up a fight against SALT – could have won. So much litigation. The NRA should leave and fight from the outside of this very difficult to deal with (unfair) State!”
The Governor of New York and New York Attorney General Letitia James are working closely together in an investigation of the NRA.
Governor Cuomo is notorious for passing controversial gun bills, and his latest one from February still has him disliked by gun owners and the NRA.
He has worked to make New York an anti-gun state and is one of the most anti-gun in the nation.
The SAFE Act has helped him along with legislation to achieve this.
The Red Flag Law, the latest bill states that if someone does not feel safe such as a school administrator, family member, person off the street or anyone can request the firearms to be stripped away from anyone at any time.
The problem with this is the person does not have to be a threat.
It also states they cannot buy, own, or attempt to buy a gun for six days, and police can take away any weapon owned by the person.
They can just have the gun in its holster and on them. This enrages the NRA and gun owners because it is a total infringement on The Second Amendment.
Both the Governor of New York and the Attorney General are strong Liberals and Democrats.
President Trump made a great impact on the NRA after he gained the popularity the most famous part of his speech at the summit.
He stated he would “protect Americans’ Second Amendment Rights,” and he would “request the Senate ends the ratification process for the UN arms treaty.” President Trump concluded the statement with “It would infringe on gun owner’s freedoms.”
The Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, Chris W. Cox commented on Trump’s speech, “His commitment to un-sign the anti-gun United Nations Arms Trade Treaty that was forced on us by John Kerry and Barack Obama gives NRA members one more reason to enthusiastically support his presidency.
Donald Trump isn’t afraid to stand on the side of freedom and defend our God-given right to self-defense and we couldn’t be prouder to stand with him.
“The NRA supports our president, and he supports them. If the president stands up to erase everything former President Obama and Senator John Kerry last week at the summit, then he will have no problem standing up to the Governor and Attorney General of New York today.
The president and the Attorney General of New York are already well acquainted this week with the lawsuits concerning the financial records of the Trump family.
It is safe to say Trump is no stranger when it comes to political criticism in doing what is right for our nation and the people in it. What makes him so great is he does not let anything stop him.
New York is one of the most powerful states in the country and has a lot of influence on the nation. It has many powerful politicians within its realm.
But it does not take away from the fact that what they are doing is illegal and desecrates The Constitution of the United States of America.
They are not only trying to remove The Second Amendment from its state, but they are also trying to remove
The First Amendment so no one can talk about it or bring anything up.
