LaPierre addresses the anti-gun culture and recent school shootings. The NRA executive vice president addresses members at the 1998 Annual Meetings in Philadelphia about the "cultural war" waged by the media and entertainment industry to make gun ownership "socially unacceptable." These tactics are fueled, he says, by spins on the tragedies that have been occurring at high schools across the country in recent months. "The fact is," says LaPierre, "we live in a world where our leaders are philanderers. Philanderers cheat, cheaters lie, liars kill and killers walk! And believe me, it's not lost on our kids!"
