In his speech Trump suggested the right to bear arms could have prevented the recent Paris murders:\u0022There wouldn't have been 130 people killed and hundreds of people lying in the hospital to this day. It might not have happened, because if they knew there where guns in the room it might not have happened. But if it did, you would have had bullets going in the opposite direction and believe me, the carnage would not have been the same, by any stretch of the imagination,\u0022 said Trump.

Trump appears happy to woo the lobby despite many of his resorts and properties being gun free and the NRA is a willing partner:\u0022The thing is, with Americans, all people, they feel the same, they're ready for change and everything and I feel like he's on the same page as we are, even if he's from upper class New York and I'm from Middlesboro. It's a different world but we all feel the same,\u0022 said one man. Women also back Trump: \u0022Well he was fantastic as always, he brought all the good points that I think the American people want to life and he wants to do the right thing for us for once. It's finally a time where somebody stands with the American people and not with the party.\u0022
