Trump in Dallas:'You know what causes nuclear war? Weakness'

President Donald Trump urged Republican voters not to be complacent in in the midterm elections and promised to protect the Second Amendment while speaking Friday at the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Dallas.

In response to his remarks, foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll said in a statement on Saturday: "France expresses its firm disapproval of the comments by President Trump about the attacks of November 13, 2015 in Paris and asks for respect of the memory of the victims".

But Friday's speech was his first appearance before NRA members since the February 14 mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that created a new wave of momentum for the gun-control movement nationwide led by the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Such measures are supported by the NRA.

Hogg said he believes the NRA is afraid of the support students are gaining in their push for stricter gun laws. The plan, which has faced quite a bit of criticism, would prevent shootings because they would be in "gun-free zones", he told the crowd.

After the Second Amendment rally, Van Dyke said he wanted to "go check out the new guns", at the NRA convention and "have fun".

Trump did not elaborate on how the Second Amendment was under siege. "History says that when you win the presidency, you get complacent".

The right he's most interested in "is the Bill of Rights", something Cohen said was given not by the government "but by God himself".

On Friday, Trump will speak to the NRA in Dallas as the issue of gun violence takes on new urgency after one of the deadliest school shootings in USA history.

His Justice Department has also proposed barring "bump stocks" - devices that allow sem-iautomatic rifles to fire like fully automatic weapons - through regulations, although Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill would prefer that be done legislatively.

Though Trump does have some vocal admirers in Britain, the majority of the country views him negatively - a poll conducted earlier this year found just one in 10 Britons thought he was a good or great president, 67 percent of the country said that he had been "poor" or "terrible". "You're not going to have school attacks", Trump said.

As Trump spoke, shares rose in major gun makers Sturm Ruger & Co and American Outdoor Brands, maker of Smith & Wesson firearms. Gun sales typically surge on such concerns after mass shootings.

"If he's in front of families he might say something in support of common-sense gun reform, but then when he's at the NRA he'll say something to get a big cheer".

The NRA, which spent more than $30 million to help elect him in 2016, endorsed Trump to conservatives.
