NRA Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer Wayne LaPierre addressed the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland. “Have we ever seen such anger in this country,” asked the NRA chief, referring to the enraged leftist movement.
He said many of these people hate everything that America stands for and they’re willing to engage in criminal violence to get what they want. These are dangerous times, warned LaPierre, who declared that we’re also under siege from the national media machine. Everything they do, he pointed out, is intended to purposely and maliciously destroy the Trump presidency.
Raw Story – LaPierre went on to say: “We’ve got five million active NRA members, 25 million more who consider themselves NRA members and we have gun owners and Second Amendment supporters all over this country.”
“So, if you’re a member of the leftist media, or a soldier for the violent left, a violent criminal, a drug cartel gang member, or a would-be terrorist, hear this: you’re not going to win and you will not defeat us,” he said.
“Make no mistake if the violent left brings their terror to our communities, our neighborhoods, or into our homes they will be met with the resolve and the strength and the full force of American freedom in the hands of the American people and we will win because we are the majority in this country.”
