Watch: Trump brings up surprise guest on stage, Texas crowds erupt in applause
About the event
On Friday, Donald Trump addressed the National Rifle Association’s Annual Leadership Forum. However, attendees at the group’s annual convention, which will be held this year in Houston, will not be allowed to have guns during his speech.
The NRA event offers a strong array of political speakers. It is “A one-of-a-kind Saturday night concert. There will be the country’s largest gathering of NRA members and Second Amendment advocates. This is a High-profile fundraising event with top-tier brand gifts. There are breakfasts, luncheons, and dinners to die for. There is something for everyone to enjoy with so many events spread out across four days.”
The meeting took place in the aftermath of a mass shooting at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school on Tuesday. It stole the lives of at least 21 people, out of which 19 were children.
Trump brings up a surprise guest on stage, Texas crowds erupt in applause
Jack Wilson, a volunteer security team member who shot and killed a gunman at West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement in 2019, was invited to the stage by Trump. Unfortunately, two people were killed during a service at the church in Fort Worth before Wilson intervened.
He said, “I took out evil, we have to deal with evil at all levels. You have to be prepared to stand up and do what you have to do to stop evil in this country.” He told the gathering that former President Donald Trump was still his president.
Trump about the news
He began his remarks by grieving the death of each victim of the Uvalde school shooting atrocity and reciting their names. Each innocent young person lost, according to Donald Trump, is an indescribable loss, taken from us by cruelty that no words can convey. He described the perpetrator as “pure evil,” “pure cruelty,” “pure hatred,” and “absolute pure hatred.” Adding that while those he killed are now with God in heaven, he will spend eternity in the furnaces of hell.
He also accused Democrats of politicizing the tragedy and asked for increased school security. Trump stated that although they grieve the loss of so many lovely people, he knows that everyone in the room is praying for the families who have lost the greatest light in their life. He said that they see their anguish, they pray to God to relieve their suffering and heal their pain, and they mourn together as a great American family.
Donald Trump on the need for a new approach to mental health
In response to the deaths, Donald Trump spoke on the urgency of altering our mental health approach. While they didn’t know enough about the killings last week, Trump indicated that they knew there were many things they needed to know. He believes that our approach to mental health must be dramatically altered. There are always a plethora of red flags to look out for. Almost every one of these deformed minds has a similar profile.
Donald Trump said, “Teachers, parents, school officials, and community members need to be recognizing and addressing these alarm bells promptly and very, very aggressively, and our school discipline systems, instead of making excuses and continually turning a blind eye, need to confront bad behaviour head-on and quickly. And clearly, we need to make it far easier to confine the violent and mentally deranged into mental institutions.”
NRA’s Restrictions for the attendees
The Secret Service is reportedly seizing control of the venue during Trump’s address, according to the NRA. It forbids guests from bringing guns, firearms accessories, or knives to the event. Weapons, laser pointers, pepper spray, toy weapons, backpacks, and other things were also prohibited.
The Secret Service said in a statement at the time that it had the ability to prohibit weapons from being brought into venues frequented by our protectees, even those in open-carry states.
According to the NRA, the Secret Service conducted magnetometer searches of participants before they reached the hall. This is not the first time that weapons have been prohibited during a portion of the gun organization’s annual meeting. During a speech by then-Vice President Mike Pence in 2018, a similar restriction was enacted.
