For the second year in a row, Donald J. Trump spoke at the NRA Annual Meetings Leadership Forum. Of course, this year, it was President Donald J. Trump, and he spent significant time thanking the NRA, and its members, for helping him enter the White House.



"No longer will federal agencies be coming after law-abiding gun owners," said President Trump, speaking in Atlanta on Friday. "No longer will the government be trying to undermine your rights and your freedoms as Americans. Instead, we will work with you, by your side."

While the majority of his speech was related to gun rights, the president expressed his desire to work with hunters to prevent loss of hunting-land access. He also touted what his administration has already done for hunters, such as eliminating restrictions on lead ammunition that were imposed on the last day of the previous administration.


"We will work with the NRA to promote responsible gun ownership, to protect our wonderful hunters and their access to the very beautiful outdoors," President Trump told the NRA-ILA Leadership Conference.


Access is a key concern of hunters, who have helped purchase many acres of public lands across the country through hunting-license sales and a long-established tax on firearms, ammunition and hunting equipment.
