NEWTOWN, Conn – -( Speaking before a packed crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Friday morning, President Donald Trump received one of the loudest cheering responses when, after ticking off a list of things his administration plans to accomplish, he told the crowd:

“And by the way, we will protect our Second Amendment!”

It was the first time in recent memory that a sitting president had referred to the second tenet of the Bill of Rights as “our Second Amendment.” Historically, presidents and other politicians have simply alluded to “the Second Amendment.”

It was the kind of moment that had not happened during the previous eight years at the CPAC gathering. On the campaign trail, Trump had repeatedly promised to protect the right to keep and bear arms. Indeed, Trump has been challenged by Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms to “make the Second Amendment great again.”
