In the heart of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a multitude of Second Amendment supporters convened last week to partake in the National Rifle Association's (NRA) Great American Outdoor Show.

The event was graced by the presence of former President Donald Trump, who delivered a rousing speech that resonated with the attendees.

"Every single Biden attack on gun owners and manufacturers will be terminated on my very first week back in office, perhaps my first day," Trump declared to an enthusiastic crowd gathered at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center on Friday evening.

The NRA Presidential Forum, which Trump headlined, was a key highlight of the event. The forum was primarily centered on the protection of the Second Amendment, a topic of immense significance in the battleground state. This marked the eighth occasion that Trump addressed NRA members, with his first speech dating back to 2015. The Great American Outdoor Show, hosted by the NRA, is recognized as the world's largest outdoor show, featuring over 1,000 exhibitors across a sprawling 650,000 square feet of exhibit space, spanning nine days of events.

In his speech, Trump made a solemn promise to the attendees. "No one will lay a finger on your firearms," he assured, pledging to uphold the revered words, "shall not be infringed."

Trump's remarks were made in the backdrop of President Biden and Vice President Harris's repeated pledges to "take on the NRA" and impose a ban on so-called assault weapons. Biden's tenure has seen him sign numerous executive actions related to gun control, including the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. However, the NRA has expressed its disapproval of the Act, citing its broad language and failure to address violent crimes.

Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, speaking to Fox News Digital prior to Trump's speech, criticized the Democrats' stance on gun control. He argued that Democrats "don't understand these platforms" and are aiming for "total government control."

"They don't think individuals should have the right to carry, should have the right to have firearms. So, we have to always be focused on the Second Amendment and fighting to preserve our rights," Reschenthaler stated.

Trump's victory in Pennsylvania in the 2016 election, followed by his loss in 2020, has led Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Scott Perry to anticipate frequent visits by the former president to the state ahead of the 2024 Election Day. Perry believes that gun owners will play a pivotal role in Trump's potential victory.

Perry, in an interview with Fox News Digital, emphasized the importance of the Second Amendment to Pennsylvanians, stating, "We believe in the constitution."

Reschenthaler echoed Perry's sentiments, describing the state's constitution protecting the right to bear arms as an "amendment that protects all the other amendments."

Reschenthaler, who represents Pennsylvania’s 14th Congressional District, stressed the importance of the Second Amendment to his constituents, particularly in light of rising crime rates.

Perry urged every registered Republican in the Keystone State to cast their vote in this election year to bring about a national red wave.
