Between two hearings in a criminal trial in New York, the former President of the United States (2017-2021) and Republican Party candidate is campaigning over the weekend in front of ardent supporters of gun rights. Sanctified by 2e Amendment to the US Constitution.

He is scheduled to speak this afternoon at the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) annual leadership forum in Dallas, Texas.

Speaking at a donor dinner in Minnesota on Friday, he reaffirmed his never-proven theory that the 2020 presidential election, won by rival Joe Biden, was rigged. He noted that he voted in Minnesota in 2016 and 2020, where Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton won over Joe Biden.

He then launched scathing and sometimes insulting attacks against Joe Biden, describing him as a “horrible man”, among other things.

The 77-year-old Republican billionaire has close ties to the NRA, which gave him tens of millions of dollars for his successful campaign in 2016.

He has already promised to roll back the regulatory measures put in place during current President Joe Biden’s tenure if he is returned to power.

Donald Trump is speaking before the NRA in a troubling context for the association. It lost its iconic chairman, Wayne LaPierre, who resigned in January ahead of a civil trial in New York where he was found guilty by a jury of corruption and mismanagement and awarded more than $4.3 million in financial damages to the main fund.

There are more individual firearms in circulation in the United States than there are people, and this proliferation results in a much higher rate of gun deaths in the United States than in other developed countries.

About 49,000 people died by gunfire in 2021, and 45,000 in 2020, already a record year, or more than 130 deaths per day, more than half of them suicides.
