“Knives, Knives, Knives” says Trump. But in the USA it’s guns, guns, guns. Personally I do not believe Trump’s pro-gun argument holds water. What do you think?
Here’s the MSM story and a YT Video of the whole speech:

U.S. President Donald Trump tackled a range of issues –both about guns and not – as he spoke at an NRA convention on Friday afternoon.
Many were wondering how his speech would go after meeting with the victims of the Parkland shooting in which 17 people died at a high school.
After the attack, Trump met with survivors and appeared to criticize the NRA, saying he would stand up to the gun lobby.
But in his speech on Friday, Trump pandered to the crowd, hitting many of the lobby’s main talking points, along with a few others.
Trump first said that the whole nation mourns for the victims of the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.
“Our entire nation was filled with shock and grief by monstrous attack [at] a high school in Parkland, Fla.,” Trump said.
He repeated his call to arm teachers and to have more security at high schools, saying gun-free zones invite people to attack them…
…While talking about London’s increase in knife attacks, Trump made a stabbing motion with his hands.
“I recently read a story about London, which has unbelievably tough gun laws,” he said. “Yes that’s right, they don’t have guns, they have knives.”
He said a “once very prestigious hospital” is now like a military hospital in a war zone, and described it as having “blood all over the floors.”
“Knives, knives, knives,” he said, while mimicking stabbing people.
According to British media, there has been an increase in stabbings in the recent past. But as the Independent points out, the murder rate for 2017 in London is half as much as New York’s murder rate, a city of about the same size.
