If re-elected, former President Donald Trump has stated that he plans to reverse the gun restrictions put in place by President Joe Biden. This was made clear during a speech Trump gave to a crowd of supporters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, organized by the National Rifle Association (NRA). The NRA has been a staunch supporter of Trump since his 2016 election campaign and throughout his presidency. As the leading candidate for the Republican party in the 2024 presidential election, Trump sees conservative gun owners as a crucial voting bloc for his re-election.
During Biden’s presidency, gun reform laws were passed in 2022, representing a minor compromise between Democrats and Republicans. However, this compromise did not go far enough for many on both sides of the political spectrum. In his speech to the NRA, Trump expressed his displeasure with these restrictions and vowed to repeal them if elected again.
The NRA played a significant role in Trump’s election campaign and has continued to support him throughout his presidency. They organized the rally where Trump made these statements and have been vocal in their support for him as he prepares to run for president again in 2024.
It is worth noting that while Trump has expressed his intention to reverse gun restrictions if re-elected, there is no guarantee that this will happen. The political landscape is constantly changing, and it remains to be seen what policies will be implemented if Biden or any other candidate wins the election.
