Donald J. Trump to Address NRA Members at the NRA Presidential Forum, Great American Outdoor Show

The National Rifle Association (NRA) today announced that President Donald J. Trump will address NRA members as the keynote speaker at the NRA Presidential Forum, part of the NRA's Great American Outdoor Show, on Friday, February 9, 2024, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

This marks President Trump's eighth address to NRA members, reaffirming his enduring commitment to the Second Amendment and the American tradition of firearm ownership. President Trump first addressed the NRA in Nashville in 2015, since then, he has been a steadfast advocate for the NRA, the Second Amendment, and self-defense rights, emphasizing this in subsequent speeches at NRA events, including his promise in 2016 to never let NRA members down. As President, Trump upheld this commitment by appointing a record-setting number of judges who respect the Second Amendment, designating firearm retailers as critical infrastructure during COVID-19, and unsigning from the ATT arms trade treaty on stage at the 2019 NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis.

In addition to his policy achievements, President Trump's Supreme Court appointments played a pivotal role in landmark Second Amendment rulings such as NRA-funded NYSRPA v. Bruen, further cementing his legacy as a defender of gun rights. He is also a life member of the NRA, underscoring his personal dedication to the association’s mission.

NRA President Charles Cotton commented, "President Trump's unwavering support for the Second Amendment, and his track record of protecting the rights of gun owners make him an exemplary speaker for this momentous event. His fellow NRA members can’t wait to hear from him for the eighth time.”

Randy Kozuch, executive director of NRA-ILA, added, "President Trump's presence at the Great American Outdoor Show is a testament to his ongoing commitment to our constitutional freedoms. His leadership has been crucial in safeguarding the rights of hunters, sportsmen, and all Americans who cherish our outdoor heritage."

The NRA's Great American Outdoor Show is the world's largest outdoor show, spanning nine days and featuring over 1,000 exhibitors across 650,000 square feet of exhibit space. Last year, the event welcomed 200,000 NRA members and patriots, celebrating hunting, fishing, and outdoor traditions.

The event will take place at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex, 2300 North Cameron Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
