President Donald J. Trump will address National Rifle Association of America members as the keynote speaker at the 2024 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits on Saturday, May 18th in Dallas, TX. It marks the ninth address President Trump has delivered on NRA’s stage, reaffirming his strong commitment to the NRA, the Second Amendment and the rich American tradition of firearm ownership.

“President Trump is under relentless attacks because he is not afraid to fight for those who share his American values,” said NRA Interim Executive Vice President and CEO Andrew Arulanandam. “He is uniquely qualified to address our members who know what it’s like to stand for something, even when it’s hard. The NRA and our millions of members around the country have President Trump’s back, and we know he has ours.”

President Trump first addressed the NRA in Nashville, TN in 2015. Since then, he has been a steadfast advocate for the NRA, the Second Amendment and self-defense rights—including his promise in 2016 to never let NRA members down.

President Trump—an NRA Life Member—made good on that promise by appointing a record-setting number of judges who respect the Second Amendment, including three Supreme Court justices who played a pivotal role in landmark Second Amendment rulings such as NRA-funded NYSRPA v. Bruen, cementing his legacy as a gun rights champion.

“President Trump’s presence at the NRA Annual Meeting is a powerful sign of his ongoing commitment to our constitutional freedoms and the Association’s efforts to protect and advance the Second Amendment rights of every law-abiding American,” added Randy Kozuch, executive director of NRA-ILA, “His fellow NRA members can’t wait to hear from him at this pivotal moment in our Nation’s history.”

The NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits is the largest gathering of NRA members and Second Amendment supporters in the country. Spanning three days of free seminars, special events, and the massive Exhibit Hall filled with 14 acres of the latest guns and gear from the most popular companies in the firearm and outdoors industry, make it the premiere event for NRA members and patriots from around the country.
