President Trump 'proud' to be 1st president to address the NRA in 34 years

The gun rights advocacy group endorsed his presidential run.

"In the history of the organization and today I am also proud to be the first sitting president to address the NRA leadership forum since our wonderful Ronald Reagan in 1983," Trump said.

Today's meeting, at the NRA's Leadership Forum in Atlanta, isn't Trump's first speech to the gun rights group. He was endorsed by the NRA in May and spoke at their convention at the time.

"Only one candidate in the general election came to speak to you and that candidate is now the president of the United States standing before you again," Trump said of himself during his speech.

"The eight year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end. You have a true friend and champion in the White House," Trump said.

"Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the Second Amendment, not change it; she wants to abolish it," Trump said at the time, although Clinton had never made such claims.

At today's speech, Trump stressed their love of shooting.

"I can tell you, both sons, they love the outdoors. Frankly, I think they love the outdoors more than they love by a long shot Fifth Avenue, but that's OK," Trump joked.
