What Gun Owners and Sportsmen Need to Know About President Trump on Inauguration Day
OutdoorHub Reporters 01.20.17
Today is an important day in American history. It’s the day we as a nation, welcome our new leader into Presidency. Today, Donald Trump was sworn-in as the 45th president of the United States of America, and we’re here to discuss what that means for hunters, and all outdoor activists.
First of all, President Trump promised throughout the election that he will stand up and fight for gun rights, and that was a big pressing issue for gun owners. Now that President Trump is in office, we can at least breathe a sigh of relief over that.
For all of us as outdoor enthusiasts, the Second Amendment is not just a passion or a hobby that we participate in every weekend, it’s a lifestyle. In an interview with SilencerCo’s CEO, Donald Trump Jr. discussed the importance of those rights.
Now, there are still some lingering issues, such as controversy with federal hunting/fishing lands being transferred to the states. However, neither President Donald Trump nor Rep. Ryan Zinke, his pick to head the Interior Department, support that movement. President Trump will be a deer in headlights right off the bat, as we await to see how those issues are handled.
All in all, this presidency represents many things to us as a community – the preservation of our lands, taking care of those lands, public hunting rights, and our 2nd Amendment freedoms. There’s still a lot to be seen and even more that’s up in the air, but today, we as hunters, anglers and Americans can chalk this day up as a win for our sport.
