Trump visited the Palmetto State Armory on Monday before speaking in Summerville, South Carolina, to emphasize his support for gun-toting, law-abiding Americans despite the Biden administration’s gun control effort.
Trump examined different weapons inside the store, briefly greeted the press thanked them for being there, and asked questions about different models of weapons. The store also owner briefly shared a story of how much he enjoyed watching Trump’s former reality show, “The Apprentice.”
The president appeared at the Palmetto State Armoury as Joe Biden announced the creation of the “Office of Gun Violence Prevention,” led by Kamala Harris.
Biden’s anti-Second Amendment views contrast with Trump’s support for gun rights since 2016.
Earlier this year, President Trump vowed to NRA members in Indiana that as president again, “I promise you this – with me at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, no one will lay a finger on your firearms…I will uphold those glorious words: shall not be infringed.”
