WATCH LIVE: Trump speaks at the NRA Convention! Also, Pence and Cruz!

Trump is scheduled to deliver a speech today at the NRA convention which is just getting underway. His speech should come soon after Pence, which I believe is early in the lineup, somewhere just after 12pm ET.

Ted Cruz is also on the agenda to deliver a speech there at 1:50 ET.

Below are some live streams you can watch:

  1. Trump supported the bump stock ban and does not have reliable pro-2nd Amendment views. Having him speak at an NRA Convention is a joke. This is why the NRA is losing membership.

    1. Bump stock essentially turned semi-automatics into automatics which were already banned to general public. So all he did was close a loop hole.

      1. Please Abe… don’t use facts with these anti-Trumpers. They’re like MSNBC and CNN.

        1. How can Tromp arbitrarily decide that something that the BATF said was perfectly legal suddenly is not? Under the NFA, it’s a lawful device. Congress didn’t change the law, this was done without grandfathering stocks that were already in posession or compensating owners for them. We had to turn them in, destroy them or become felons. That’s some real banana republic $#!+ right there.

        2. @ciceroni-excogitatoris If you’re against criticism of Trump for supporting gun control, you’re certainly not conservative.

      2. Nope. It stayed as a semi automatic but employed a spring to allow the firing action to reset. Every round required the squeeze of the trigger. It simply moved the weapon and the finger remained stationary.

        I never cared for them myself, and you can basically make a bump stock with a belt. But he should know you can’t give an inch to liberal assholes, or they’ll take a mile. Just like that little b*tch from MSD school said.

        Now I’m hearing Cruz is backing federal red flag laws. Buch of p*ssies.

            1. Yes you are totally correct and I believe the same as you! It makes me crazy when they create a circus over stuff like this. I just lost my beloved husband but if I remember correctly, he called it “a gimmick” and something about jamming ….. he was fiercely for the 2nd amendment …..and felt the right to own it….what is going to happen can we be charged with anything for having it in the house?

        1. @chow-yun-fatty the importance here is that the resulting effect of bump stock is automatic firing action which was already banned via automatic gun ban.

          1. Once again, it wasn’t automatic firing. If you want to say it simulated automatic fire, that’s correct. Under no definition is one round per trigger squeeze automatic. Jerry Mickeluk can simulate automatic fire with his finger. These nuances are what leftist scum try to conflate to further trample on your rights. It is our responsibility to know these defining traits inside/out to stop their agenda from advancing further. Bump stocks had already passed the litmus test prior. The NRA bent over and basically allowed the ATF to interpret law. Funny, I thought that was the job of the courts.

          2. You’re missing the point, Abe. This ban can be applied to anything that increases the rate of fire, such as a high performance trigger or an extended magazine.

        2. his legislation called for ‘extreme risk’ evaluation before acting against people- red flag laws don’t require any court to determine a person is an extreme risk- and red flag laws violate due process- Ted’s proposal protects due process from the sounds of it- I don’t think his proposal is different than red flag laws- in that a person has to be proven to be an extreme risk- before action is taken- but I’m not sure- hard to tell from just a short clip- hopefully he doesn’t support actual red flag law

          1. Okay. I like the due process. But like everything else that goes before a judge, it’s up to their interpretation. Would you trust RGB with that decision? I wouldn’t. What happens when your next door liberal neighbor who doesn’t like guns or your 2A shirts decides to falsely accuse you of threatening them? Yes, you’ll have your day in court, perhaps even before they take away your arms, but the burden of proof now relies on you. In the event of a he said/ she said, do you think any judge, constitutionalist or not, is going to side with you? No. They’ll strip you of your arms “for safety” and if you get them back, don’t be surprised if you find your barrel with a nice bend in it.

    2. @sonofagip

      I didn’t realize a bump stock itself was a firearm and covered by the second amendment

  2. Can we get a link to the Ted Cruz speech please? Eager to see him speak again. It’s been way too long.

  3. Can we get a link to the Ted Cruz speech please? Eager to see him speak again. It’s been way too long.

  4. We should never agree to give up any of our rights to own any kind of weapon we want. If you give them anything they always want to take it all.

    1. @AFVet Absolutely. People forget that Cornwallis marched on Lexington and Concord to seize privately owned firearms, including cannon

    2. When will enough gun laws really be enough?
      With the number of laws and their redundancy already on the books it seems to me that there will NEVER be enough and to add more to the mix seems like the definition of insanity…more and more guns laws and the effect is the same…bad people kill people, with cars, knives, fists and yes even guns…and we should hold those PREDATORS in low/no regard….imagine a loved one of yours as the victim.

      The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America was expressly written in by our founders as a tool for citizens to protect this same United States of America from the menace of a tyrannical government that could and may be rising in this country. It was not put into the Bill of Rights for the purpose of duck hunting or target practice. It is to counter tyranny and to do so adequately it permits military style weapons including full automatic assault weapons exactly like the ones that will be used against the populace in the event of a tyrannical assault upon us.

      The founders of this great country had seen it all in the countries they emigrated from and they were extremely prescient to foresee the same kind of menace someday being perpetrated on this country by our very own government. Tyranny, whether they understand their actions as such, is very high on the mind of way too many people residing within the borders of the United States of America..way too many.
      Our culture as the safest place in the world for people in need of rescue is being subverted by enemies, outside and inside of our great country. Forces of evil want to dissolve our culture to that of some third world banana empire..if you look you can see it….just listen to the proclamations or should I say rantings of Pelosi and omar and tlaib and schumer., antifa..THE LEFT… WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

      There is only one solution to the violence committed upon our citizens whether by guns, knives, baseball bats or whatever devise happens to be available to the perpetrator of the willful violence.

      Remember that there will always be guns and depriving law abiding people of their 2nd Amendment RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS puts them AT THE MERCY OF CRIMINALS WHO DON’T RESPECT ANY LAW AT ALL.

      INSTEAD OF GUN CONTROL WE DESPERATELY NEED CRIMINAL CONTROL.
      I HAVE THE ONLY SOLUTION TO REDUCE GUN VIOLENCE IN ANY AND ALL COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD……bleeding hearts and soy boys and progressives and wusses can stop reading because I am about to say how we as law abiding citizens can protect ourselves nearly 100% against the human predators that we seem to give SO MUCH UNFOUNDED sympathy to.

      HERE IS THE SOLUTION:

      In America, where we have the RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, we need to eliminate ALL gun laws.
      THAT’S RIGHT, YOU HEARD ME…………….ALL GUN LAWS! ( they haven’t worked and NEVER will because the criminals just do not obey gun laws or any other law.) All present laws are directed at the law abiding portion of our society. When we restrict THEIR use of the guns they would like to use we do not prevent gun violence, BUT WE ENCOURAGE IT….GUN FREE ZONES, DO I NEED TO SAY MORE? Our politicians that advocate for gun control only advocate for the criminal to have guns…..they, the gun control politicians among us are the MOST STUPID OF HUMAN BEING ON THE PLANET AND NEED TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE…..listen to their rhetoric…it’s mindless.

      LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS…………this is short and sweet.

      When a gun is brandished or used in the commission of a crime the brandisher or user, when apprehended will, within twelve hours of arrest, be remanded to a secure prison facility not less than 2000 miles from his/her home FOR FIFTY YEARS and assigned to HARD LABOR for a minimum of sixteen hours a day, fed only gruel and no in-house facilities such as TV, library weight room ,basketball court…just PUNISHMENT! Also not permitted visitors for fifteen years except for an annual visit of a defense lawyer. The trial of the accused shall be conducted in absentia and only for the purported crime not for the firearms violation.
      If a death is incurred during the commission of the crime the criminal shall be executed within one year of apprehension in the facility of his incarceration.

      LET’S RID OURSELVES OF THESE SAVAGE PREDATORS. THEY’RE NOT WORTH ANY CONSIDERATION!
      We also need to rid ourselves of ALL un-American politicians who don’t honor their oaths of office to PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES lke that creepy looking f*** gov murphy of nj

              1. @sallyjohanna So sorry to hear about your husband. He was right, it is a gimmick, or a toy if you will. They’re banned on most gun ranges, difficult to shoot accurately and waste a whole lot of ammo.

                1. Thank you Doc….I lost my constant companion of 44 yrs and a fantastic person! He loved his gun collection and bought our first gun when we bought our first house….I’ll never forget him taking me for my first time shooting a firearm ..after that initial shaking like Don Knotts on my first shot….I loved target practice!
                  What they are doing is like with everything else the Liberals do…control us….at any little entry point they can find….makes me sick!

          1. Okay. I like the due process. But like everything else that goes before a judge, it’s up to their interpretation. Would you trust RGB with that decision? I wouldn’t. What happens when your next door liberal neighbor who doesn’t like guns or your 2A shirts decides to falsely accuse you of threatening them? Yes, you’ll have your day in court, perhaps even before they take away your arms, but the burden of proof now relies on you.

No. They’ll strip you of your arms “for safety” and if you get them back, don’t be surprised if you find your barrel with a nice bend in it.

            1. the burden of proof is on the court- with red flag laws- you have no due process at all- your guns are confiscated- period- and you are deemed dangerous- however with what cruz is proposing I believe is that you go through due process, and have the ability and right to be evaluated and found to be non dangerous- I’m pretty sure there is a high standard for being deemed a ‘high risk’ or ‘extreme risk’ required by the court- so that your disgruntled neighbor or ex can’t simply declare you a danger and have your rights revoked without due process- The court has to determine, at their own expense, that you are an ‘extreme risk’ too mentally unstable to own guns- red flag laws have none o that- no due process- and these rad flag laws are beginning to sweep across this country- An ‘Extreme risk’ rule would be a much much higher standard of proof- and would only involve people who are mentally unstable- a disgruntled neighbor or ex can’t cause mentally stable people to lose their rights with an ‘extreme risk’ rule like they can with an ambiguous red flag law- This will likely be fought up to the SC when liberal judges overstep their authority and declare people of sound mind as unstable- This extreme risk rule is a counter to the idiotic red flag laws- We have courts already evaluating people who are ‘extreme risks’ and determining whether they can own guns or not-

              1. I’m not debating that what Cruz is proposing is better than a standard red flag law. The point is this is still a case of potential punishment before the crime. From a text book point of view, the burden of proof lay with the court, yes. But ultimately one judge will rule on your situation. If that judge has a hair up her ass about gun owners, do you really think he/she’s going to go by the constitution? What’s to stop them from making a decision, not based on facts, but based on their emotion? Will state/federal oversight come in and overrule? No. So, okay it goes to the supreme court. Meanwhile you are still disarmed, you’re now made a public figure unwillingly, and your bill of rights lay in the hands of non elected individuals where your fate lay in the nominated balance of the supreme court. And who will do the evaluation to determine you aren’t an extreme risk? I hope not somebody like Eugene Gu, or you’re f*cked.

                In certain cases I support this. If a crazy dude is pointing a gun at people for no reason, by all means, take his guns away until he can be evaluated and cleared. But by allowing the government in before a crime is committed, you are opening yourself to a shit storm that will never be rolled back. Cruz should know this. Don’t kid yourself. Time will come where wearing a MAGA hat will fall under “extreme risk”. Just like “toxic masculinity” is now a mental illness. “I’m from the government and I’m here to help”.

                1. [[If that judge has a hair up her ass about gun owners, do you really think he/she’s going to go by the constitution?]]
                  Yes- that’s what the Constitution is for- and if a judge can’t abide by it, then it needs to go to supreme court- unfortunate that it should have to go there- but if that’;s what it takes, then that’s what it takes-
                  [[Time will come where wearing a MAGA hat will fall under “extreme risk”.]]
                  No sorry- we still have freedom of speech- prot4ected again by our constitution-
                  [[In certain cases I support this.]]
                  So doesn’t Ted- which was why he is introducing the extreme risk policy to undermine the unconstitutional, due process violating red flag laws-

                2. You trust the federal government, it’s inhabitants, and it’s system a lot more than I do.

      2. Please Abe… don’t use facts with these anti-Trumpers. They’re like MSNBC and CNN.

        1. How can Tromp arbitrarily decide that something that the BATF said was perfectly legal suddenly is not? Under the NFA, it’s a lawful device. Congress didn’t change the law, this was done without grandfathering stocks that were already in posession or compensating owners for them. We had to turn them in, destroy them or become felons. That’s some real banana republic $#!+ right there.

        2. @ciceroni-excogitatoris If you’re against criticism of Trump for supporting gun control, you’re certainly not conservative.

    2. @sonofagip

      I didn’t realize a bump stock itself was a firearm and covered by the second amendment

    3. Yeah, and his support for the red flag laws is downright scary. I hope that someone talked some sense into him.

        1. @sonofagip 10 years ago my doctor prescribed an anti-depressant for sleeplessness. (I took it for a day or two and threw it out.) Some day, SWAT will bust down my door because I suffer from depression and am a danger to myself and others.

  6. We should never agree to give up any of our rights to own any kind of weapon we want. If you give them anything they always want to take it all.
