BREAKING: President Trump made 15,000 NRA members very happy when he announced he was pulling the US out of the UN Arms Trade Treaty – which the NRA called "anti-gun."

"Today in front of 15,000 NRA members, President Trump once again demonstrated his commitment to our Second Amendment freedoms and  American Sovereignty," Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action, said in a statement. "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 crowd cheered as he signed a letter to the Senate to stop the treaty ratification process: 

INDIANAPOLIS – The National Rifle Association will hear from President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence Friday during their annual convention being held this year in Indianapolis. 

Friday morning, VP Pence told the thousands on hand that he and the president would consistently defend their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
