Your article would post as follows: your article would post as follows: thank you, wayne, and thank you, jason. I'm honored to be here in the great state of texas with the wonderful patriots of the nra, and unlike some, I did not disappoint you by not showing up. [Cheers and applause] gotta show up.
For more than 150 years, the NRA has stood strong in defense of our rights, our freedoms, our families, our law enforcement officers and take with liberties -- and sacred liberties, and together, we will be standing tall and strong for many years to come.
I really do appreciate this incredible turnout. I want to express my gratitude to each and every one of the proud citizens here today. You are the backbone of our movement, and you are the backbone of our country. You know that. [Cheers and applause]
I just heard him, he made a wonderful speech, ted cruz, senator, thank you very much. William, thank you very much. Great job.
Governor Kristi Noem is here. Thank you. Doing a fantastic job in North Carolina. There's a hot politician. There's a hot politician.
Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson. I don't know where mark is, but he is fantastic. We just had a very good day, as you know, in North Carolina.
As we gather this week, citizens across this state and this nation are filled with grief in the wake of a heinous massacre at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. You know all about that and what a horrible thing it was to see it, to watch it, to hear about it. The terrible murder of 19 innocent children and two adult teachers with many badly injured. It was a savage and barbaric atrocity that shocks the conscience of every single American.
I want to ask for a brief moment of silence as I read the names of these beautiful people. All young, wonderful lives ahead of them. They are brave teachers whose lives were destroyed by an out-of-control lunatic, so we will start.

Thank you very much.
A beautiful moment of silence for something that should never have even been thought about, let alone happen. Each precious young soul that was taken is an incomprehensible loss. Literally not comprehensible. Stolen from us by a malice that no words can describe. Sickness.
The monster who committed this crime is pure evil, pure cruelty, pure hatred. Absolute pure hatred.
While those he slaughtered are now with god in heaven, he will be internally downed -- eternally damned to burn in the fires of hell. [Applause]
As we mourn for so many beautiful victims, I know that everyone here joins me in praying for the families who are suddenly missing the brightest light in their lives. We see their agony. We ask god to ease their suffering and to heal their pain, and together we grieve side-by-side as one great american family. Now is the time to find common ground.
Sadly, before the sun had even sat on the horrible day of tragedy, we witnessed a now mill your parade of cynical politicians seeking to exploit the tears of solving them a list to increase their own power and take away our constitutional rights.
Every time a disturbed or demented person commits such a hideous crime, there's always a grotesque effort by some in our society to use the suffering of others to advance their own extreme political agenda. Even more repulsive is their rush to shift blame away from the villains who commit acts of mass violence and to place that blame onto the shoulders of millions of peaceful, law-abiding citizens who belong to organizations such as our wonderful nra.
When Joe Biden blamed the gun lobby, he was talking about Americans like you can along with countless other democrats this week, he was shamefully suggesting that Republicans are somehow ok with letting school shootings happened. They are not OK with it. This rhetoric is highly divisive and dangerous, and most importantly, it is wrong. It has no place in our politics.
As always in the wake of these tragedies, the various gun control policies being pushed by the left would have done nothing to prevent the horrors that took place. Absolutely nothing.
Unfortunately, since columbine, we have been afflicted by a contagion of school shootings carried out by deeply evil, violent, and mentally disturbed young men.
While we do not yet know enough about this week's killing, we know there are many things we must do. We need to drastically change our approach to mental health. There are always so many warning signs. Almost all of these disfigured

I first found this speech on The Conservative Treehouse:
President Trump speaks today at the NRA Institute for Legislative Action Leadership Forum. Other speakers include Gov. Greg Abbott, State Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn. Against the backdrop of the Uvalde school shooting, those who seek to eliminate the second amendment are targeting the NRA convention in Texas. President Trump remarks ongoing at 6:00pm ET.
The audio and video is closer up at the Conservative Treehouse link I put in my article comment. (via You Tube)
He should be addressed as President Trump.
He is my president.
That statement was given at the end of the video.
The man who terminated a church assault a couple of years ago in Texas spoke about exactly that. Two church members were killed by a Muslim gunman, and the concealed carry member of the Church ended that attack with one shot.
He was not boastful. He said he did not kill a human man, he ended Evil.
The video is here:
That begins at the approximate 5 min. and 35 second mark on first video.
Does C-Span lower case “allah” like they do “god?”
Thank you! President Trump!
…..Thank you Texas Fossil for posting this!
The commentary is stingingly different from Biden. The comments are an indication of how this man has matured and shows again the clarity of his thoughts.
Nothing explains the Biden election win other than fraud. Americans did not vote for Biden.
Trump was our president then and now.
Thankfully he’s not president with the mess that is the United States right now. We are better off having him win in 2024.
Zuckerberg still has money left over for more Commie shenanigans.
We wouldn’t be in the mess we’re having right now if Biden hadn’t cheated him out of office!
Thank you for your support.
We are in a great battle that will continue for some time.
It is the oldest battle for mankind.
Good vs Evil
Truth vs Lies
Light vs Darkness
Freedom vs Slavery
Life vs Death
It will continue until God says it ends. We are expected to do our part.
C-Span had the text in all caps. I did an editor find replace to remove the all CAPS. Then I hand edited the names. I missed hand correcting the god output that you found.
I felt it was important to quote part of the speech, the text transcript is all there if you view at the link. But is in all UPPER CASE.
Very true. We would have been prospering. Gas and Diesel would be around a dollar a gallon.
