During her 25-minute speech, the second term Republican governor spoke about how nearly 25 years ago, the NRA president at the time, Charlton Heston, in the face of recent school shootings had called on the federal government and federal prosecutors to go after gun violations amid calls for stricter gun laws opposed by the NRA.

The conference, including the leadership forum Noem spoke at, comes not long after two mass shootings in the United States, including a shooting at the Covenant school in Nashville, Tennessee, where three children and three adults were killed. Five more people were killed April 10 in a shooting at a bank in Kentucky.
