Trump expresses his condolences on Memorial Day
Former President Donald Trump spoke at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Houston on Friday, about a four-hour drive from Uvalde, Texas, where at least 19 children and two teachers were killed in a school shooting on Tuesday. In a post on his Truth Social platform on Wednesday, Trump stated that he would be present at the event. After cancellations due to the coronavirus pandemic, the gun lobby meeting on Memorial Day weekend is the largest of the year. According to the event’s official website, it will last three days and “showcase over 14 acres of the newest guns and gear.”
Guest speakers at the 2022 NRA Annual Meeting
In a statement released in May, the NRA said, “The National Rifle Association is delighted to announce that former President Trump will headline a celebrity cast of political heavyweights at the NRA Institute for Legislative Action.”
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, South Dakota Gov. Kristi L. Noem, and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, all Republicans, will speak at the forum. Don McLean, the singer of “American Pie,” is scheduled to perform the following night. Sen. John Cornyn (R) of Texas was also scheduled to speak but cancelled due to personal obligations that required him to be in Washington on Friday, according to a spokesman.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) also cancelled his scheduled appearance due to a trip to Ukraine, according to an aide. Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat running for governor against Abbott, has asked him to leave the conference. Requests for comment to Abbott’s office were not returned.
Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Sears (R) of Virginia, a former Marine who famously wore an assault rifle over her outfit in a campaign ad last year, will speak at the NRA Women’s Leadership Forum Luncheon on Friday in Houston. Earle-Sears and her spokeswoman did not immediately revert to questions about her plans following the school shooting on Wednesday.
The NRA forum emerges as the shooting reignites the debate in Washington over gun control. In the aftermath of the deadliest school shooting in nearly a decade, President Biden called on the US to “stand up to the gun lobby,” and Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) relocated Tuesday night to put two House-passed gun-control bills on the Senate’s calendar. Early Wednesday, the NRA could not be reached for comment on whether or not the event will take place.
Agenda of the NRA event 2022
The NRA event billed as a “celebration of American freedom!” will take place on Friday at Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center. In a statement released in May, NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre said, “It is genuinely an honour and privilege to have President Trump address NRA members again for the sixth time at our 2022 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum in Houston.” He claimed that by appointing judges who “respect and value the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,” Trump had “helped ensure the freedom of generations of Americans” and expressed gratitude to former President George W. Bush for “supporting our right to keep and bear arms.”
Trump has sided with the gun lobby, but after the Parkland high school shooting in 2018, he shortly expressed support for background checks on gun purchases and increased police authority to seize guns from mentally ill people. He ran into a lot of opposition from the NRA and Republicans, and he eventually dropped the idea. Bump stocks, a machine that makes it easier to fire a semi-automatic rifle more quickly, were also banned by his administration. The National Rifle Association is fighting a lawsuit filed by the state of New York accusing the organisation’s executives of misusing millions of dollars. The NRA, which was founded in 1871, now has over 5 million members.
Biden Expresses his grief over the Texas Shootings
“I am sick and tired of it,” Biden says, expressing his grief and anger over the shooting. Salvador Ramos, 18, was wearing body armour and wielding a rifle when he opened fire in a fourth-grade classroom at 11:32 a.m. on the third-to-last day of the school year, sending children fleeing for their lives, according to authorities. Law enforcement officers shot and killed the gunman later.
Sen. Chris Murphy became an internet sensation after delivering a speech in the Senate on Tuesday night in which he urged his coworkers to put politics aside and collaborate together to prevent mass shootings. In 2012, Murphy was a member of the House of Representatives when a shooting occurred in his district, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, killing 20 children and six adults.
“Why are we here if not to try to ensure that fewer schools and communities go through something Sandy Hook and Uvalde have gone through?” he asked. “I’m now on this floor to beg, to actually get down on my hands and knees and beg my colleagues to find a way forward here,” says Biden. The shooting in Texas comes as the country continues to recover from a mass shooting in Buffalo earlier this month, in which a gunman killed ten people in a racist attack at a grocery store. Cruz said he was “fervently raising up in worship the children and families in the horrific shooting in Uvalde” in a tweet on Tuesday. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded to his message by mentioning his attendance at the NRA event and declaring that “faith without works is dead.”
