President Trump's Enthusiasm for NRA

President Donald Trump had a lot to say about guns at this year's NRA convention. But the facts are more complicated tha

"France is proud to be a country where acquiring and carrying firearms is strictly regulated".

Trump has already addressed the group three times and has counted it as a powerful ally from the earliest days of his presidential campaign.

Then he turned to knives.

LISTON MATTHEWS: Well, thank you for having me.

Describing a hospital in the British capital, the president told the crowd of gun enthusiasts in Dallas that knife crime in the area has become prolific.

Groves told BuzzFeed that he wanted to use the occasion of the NRA convention to ignite a discussion about ways to reduce gun violence. It is preferred by Central and South American drug cartels (huge, billion dollar gangs). If it takes them two minutes, they're too late.

"If you take away from the law-abiding citizens, who's going to protect against the criminals? And we certainly can regulate that", said Ker.

"That is why in America, we've always trusted the people to keep and bear arms". "They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital", he said. As soon as those politicians got in, they flipped.

Jesse Hernandez, 47, rallied outside Dallas City Hall on Saturday to show his support for the Second Amendment. An additional stressor for the NRA is the impact these actions and Donald Trump's divisiveness will have on the Republican party heading into the November midterms.

In a statement, Mr Le Drian said gun violence statistics "do not lead us to reconsider France's choice on this issue".

MATTHEWS: No, my views have not changed at all. "We can't let that happen". How is the NRA responsible for a tragedy?

"It's not the gun". We still have other means of people committing mass carnage.

"The one thing that stands between Americans and the elimination of our Second Amendment rights has been conservatives in Congress", he said.

He has since endorsed more modest proposals, such as legislation aimed at providing more data for the background check system.

Griffiths is reported to have said his colleagues who had served in the military had likened their work at the hospital at being back on base in war-torn Afghanistan.

On Thursday, co-owner Joe Groves posted on Facebook a photo of the receipt and said, "I'm making a list of the vile, racist, moronic conversations overheard from NRA attendees eating at the restaurant".

Tonya Duerr, who traveled to the convention with her family from Knoxville, Tennessee, was "concerned, but hopeful" about Trump's rhetoric following the shooting. Do you notice a different tone this year?

Gun violence death rates are much higher in the United States.

KELLY: Liston Matthews, good to speak with you.

Anger also flared in France after Trump, in a speech to the National Rifle Association, used his hands in a gesture to mimic the shooting of victims in Paris in 2015.
