“Freedom is not a gift from government. Freedom is a gift from God.”

Those words might have come from Ronald Reagan – the last president to address the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting, but they were spoken by President Donald Trump.

The president’s speech was met with more than approval, with the audience interrupting him with frequent enthusiastic applause.

But it was Trump’s simple announcement that brought the cheering thousands to their feet NBC reported.

“We have news that you have been waiting for… for a long time… The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end.”

And with that declaration, the Obama gun control agenda officially ended and when the new president told the audience, “You have a true friend and champion in the White House,” they knew he meant it.

Later, NRA President Wayne LaPierre told Sean Hannity in an interview, “This is a president that really understands what makes America unique are those freedoms that we have in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.”

Discussing the NRA’s early endorsement of Trump’s candidacy, LaPierre said, “Hillary Clinton would have been catastrophic to the Second Amendment… the Supreme Court would have eliminated the Second Amendment as an individual right,” complimenting Trump on his appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the bench.

Calling out the “leftist organizations and an elite media that want to wreck this president,” LaPierre said, “we have to have this president’s back – this is a battle. He has to succeed and we have to help him.”

Just nearly the 100-day mark of his presidency, Trump had already taken a major step with less fanfare when he used the Congressional Review Act to rescind an Obama rule that took away gun ownership rights from some Social Security recipients.

Obama had labeled elderly Americans who turned over their finances to a trusted family member, friend or accountant as “mentally ill.”

The American public need not have that concern with this president.

“Let me make a simple promise to every one of the freedom loving Americans…. As your president, I will never, ever infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms,” Trump concluded.

And as if to reassure his listeners, he added, “Never ever.”
