NRA’s Wayne LaPierre: ‘Gun owners will not back down – not now, not ever!’

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre can get a crowd fired up, and he didn’t disappoint in a speech that took shots at the media and the administration on Thursday.

In an address to the Conservative Political Action Conference, LaPierre doubled down on last year’s most notable quote, “the surest way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

“The political elites can’t escape and the darlings of the liberal media can’t change the God-given right of good people to protect themselves,” he said. “For that fundamental human right, the NRA stands unflinching and unapologetic. And in defense of our freedom, NRA’s five million members and America’s 100 million gun owners will not back down — not now, not ever!”

As a result, La Pierre said armed security safeguards have been put in place all over the country by teachers, parents, police and legislators.

“We trust our freedom,” he said. “In this uncertain world, surrounded by lies and corruption, there is no greater freedom than the right to survive, to protect our families with all the rifles, shotguns and handguns we want.”

The conservative crowd roared with applause.

You know the media is lying, LaPierre said, because “they still call themselves ‘journalists.’”

“The media’s intentional corruption of the truth is an abomination and NRA members will never — and I mean never —submit or surrender to the national media!”

LaPierre said this election is going to be a “bare-knuckled street fight,” and the groundwork is being laid to “put a Clinton back in the White House.” He added that their goal is to fundamentally transform America.

“But mark my words,” he said. “The NRA will not go quietly into the night. We will fight.”
