The Republican National Committee's Executive Committee voted on June 10, 2020, to adopt the same platform the party used in 2016. The decision accompanied a series of adjustments to the itinerary and location of the Republican National Convention due to the coronavirus pandemic. The committee decided to reduce the number of in-person delegates attending the convention on its first day in Charlotte, North Carolina, from 2,500 to 336, and to cancel the meeting of the Platform Committee.
... RNC national press secretary Mandi Merritt said, "It would not be right for a very small group to craft a new platform without all of the delegates present."

The 2016/2020 Rebublican Platform follows, as it relates to gun rights:

The Second Amendment:
Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms
We uphold the right of individuals to keep
and bear arms, a natural inalienable right that
predates the Constitution and is secured by the
Second Amendment. Lawful gun ownership enables
Americans to exercise their God-given right of selfdefense for the safety of their homes, their loved
ones, and their communities.
 We salute the Republican Congress for
defending the right to keep and bear arms by
preventing the President from installing a new liberal
majority on the Supreme Court. The confirmation
to the Court of additional anti-gun justices would
eviscerate the Second Amendments fundamental
protections. Already, local officials in the nations
capital and elsewhere are defying the Courts
decisions upholding an individual right to bear
arms as affirmed by the Supreme Court in Heller
and McDonald. We support firearm reciprocity
legislation to recognize the right of law-abiding
Americans to carry firearms to protect themselves
and their families in all 50 states. We support
constitutional carry statutes and salute the states
that have passed them. We oppose ill-conceived
laws that would restrict magazine capacity or
ban the sale of the most popular and common
modern rifle. We also oppose any effort to deprive 
individuals of their right to keep and bear arms
without due process of law.
We condemn frivolous lawsuits against gun
manufacturers and the current Administrations
illegal harassment of firearm dealers. We oppose
federal licensing or registration of law-abiding
gun owners, registration of ammunition, and
restoration of the ill-fated Clinton gun ban. We call
for a thorough investigation by a new Republican
administration of the deadly Fast and Furious
operation perpetrated by Department of Justice
officials who approved and allowed illegal sales of
guns to known violent criminals.

Preserving the District of Columbia
Since the Supreme Courts decisions affirming
the Second Amendment rights of its citizens, city
officials have engaged in a campaign of massive
resistance by denying virtually all applications for
gun ownership. The Republican Congress should
be prepared, upon the inauguration of a Republican
president, to enact legislation allowing law-abiding
Washingtonians to own and carry firearms.

Honoring and Supporting Our Veterans:
A Sacred Obligation
We will halt the ... unconstitutional automatic
denial of gun ownership to returning members of
our Armed Forces who have had representatives
appointed to manage their financial affairs.
