"The best way to reduce gun violence is to put criminals with firearms behind bars," Trump said to applause from the audience. "And just so you understand, we will always protect our Second Amendment." 

President Trump also touted his administration's record prosecution of crimes carried out with firearms through Project Safe Neighborhoods. 

During the event, Trump announced the establishment of the Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice through an executive order. 

More information, courtesy of the White House: 

President Trump is establishing a new executive Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice – the first commission on law enforcement in half a century.

The Commission will study key issues facing law enforcement – like substance abuse, homelessness, and mental illness.

The Commission will look at best practices for recruiting, training, and supporting law enforcement officers.  

A report and recommendations will be delivered to the President within a year.

The President has made hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of surplus military equipment available to local law enforcement.

Shortly after taking office, President Trump signed an Executive Order to help prevent violence against law enforcement officers at the Federal, State, Tribal, and local level.
