Wayne LaPierre: CPAC 2017

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.

But when Americans voted last November, the NRA vowed to stand by Donald Trump's side and LaPierre promised that gun owners across the country will fight the violent left and will not be defeated. "Terror knows no more ferocious foe than freedom in the hands of 'We the people.'" Click here for speech transcript.
