President Trump gave a speech in front of a packed out crowd Friday evening at the NRA’s convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.
In his speech Trump stated school shootings are “not a gun problem. This is a mental health problem. This is a social problem. This is a cultural problem. This is a spiritual problem.”

Check out what NBC reported:
President Donald Trump vowed to defend and expand gun-owners rights in a speech to the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting here Friday.
“I was proud to be the most pro-gun, pro-Second Amendment president you’ve ever had in the White House,” Trump said to an audience that leapt to its feet, cheered and chanted “U-S-A” when he was introduced. “And with your support in 2024, I will be your loyal friend and fearless champion once again as the 47th president of the United States.”
“It is a scandal and a tragedy that year after year, Democrats in Washington continue to hold commonsense school safety measures hostage to their radical gun control agenda, which, in virtually all cases, would do nothing to prevent attacks by demented and disturbed individuals,” Trump said.
“This is not a gun problem,” he added, as he batted cleanup for a long list of Republican officials and office seekers. “This is a mental health problem, this is a social problem, this is a cultural problem, this is a spiritual problem.”
Later in his speech he would call for national concealed carry reciprocity.
