Donald Trump has told America's most powerful gun lobby that "the eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end".
Mr Trump told members of the National Rifle Association in Atlanta that they have "a true friend and champion in the White House".
He is the first sitting US President since Ronald Reagan in 1983 to address the influential lobby's annual meeting.
Mr Trump, who was endorsed by the NRA during his presidential campaign, said: "No longer will Federal agencies be coming after law-abiding gun-owners. No longer will the Government be trying to undermine your rights and your freedoms, as Americans.
"Instead, we will work with you, by your side."
Former US president George HW Bush has been released from hospital after treatment for pneumonia and chronic bronchitis.
The 92-year-old was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on April 14 for treatment of a persistent cough and was later diagnosed with pneumonia.
His spokesman said Mr Bush was "pleased to be home spending time with family and friends" and was "grateful for the outstanding care provided by his doctors and nurses" during his two-week stay in hospital.
Mr Bush, who served as president from 1989 to 1993, will continue receiving treatment for bronchitis at home.
He was also treated in hospital for 16 days in January for pneumonia.
