Less than one day after his speech at the annual National Rifle Association (NRA) convention, Donald Trump tweeted that a Hillary Clinton presidency would not only eliminate people’s gun rights but strip Clinton of her armed security team as well.

The tweet echoed claims that Trump made during the convention Friday, and in the months leading up to it, where he referred to Clinton as a “heartless hypocrite” for wanting to strip people of their Second Amendment rights, while being surrounded by a security team of armed bodyguards. Pointing to his opponent and Democratic politicians in general, he said, “Let’s see how they feel walking around without their guns on their bodyguards.”

The Republican candidate’s speech tied into one of the prominent themes of this year’s meeting: that a Clinton presidency would ultimately signify the “end of individual freedom.”

“If she could, Hillary would ban every gun, destroy every magazine, run an entire national security industry right into the ground, and put your name on a government registration list,” Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president and CEO of the NRA, said during his own speech Friday. “If she gets her hands on the Supreme Court and stacks it with just one more justice, every total gun ban she dreams, every confiscation scheme that she craves, would stand up in her court and we’ll all be kissing our Second Amendment freedom goodbye.”

In reality, Clinton does not want to ban all guns or take away people’s right to self-defense. Her campaign platform includes expanded background checks, taking military-grade weapons off of the streets, making it easier for victims to hold gun manufacturers and sellers accountable, and preventing domestic abusers from owning firearms — while acknowledging that “gun ownership is part of the fabric of many law-abiding communities.”

The NRA endorsed Trump, who has emerged as a staunch gun-rights advocate throughout his campaign. On Friday, the presidential hopeful pledged to eliminate all gun-free zones and protect “the most basic right of all.” In September, Trump unveiled a Second Amendment platform that closely mirror’s the NRA’s agenda.

But Trump’s latest stance on guns is a stark reversal of his position in years past. In his 2000 book, The America We Deserve, he wrote that too many Republicans cave in to pressure from the gun lobby and “refuse” to take limited restrictions on firearms into consideration. In the past, Trump also came out in favor of thorough background checks and backed proposed bans on assault weapons.

Contrary to Trump’s and the NRA’s assertions, studies have found that increased gun ownership has meant more gun murders, not fewer, and that guns are almost never successfully used in self-defense.
