LaPierre: NRA, members will never surrender guns

The public face of the National Rifle Association is imploring members to never surrender their weapons in the wake of recent gun control efforts in Congress that he said will "destroy us and every ounce of our freedom."

Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre spoke in Houston during the organization's annual member meeting, which is part of the yearly convention.

LaPierre told several thousand people that the "political and media elites" have tried to use December's shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school and other recent mass shootings "to blame us, to shame us, to compromise our freedom for their agenda."

He also implored lawmakers to instead enforce current federal gun laws and rebuild the nation's mental health system.

I am not an NRA member, but I won’t. When they come after them or it, they will be able to get it because I will be in no condition to resist. I was free born and I will die as a free man.

Tough talk from the organization behind every single major gun control legislation in the past 100 years.

August 27,1776 My cousin Arron Mershon died in the battle of long island and has been MIA since. Many will give up their bullets one at a time in the spirit of “76”. This country is wroth dying for.

Out of my cold, dead hands?

The point isn't to die for the cause of American freedom, but make the enemy die for communism.

I will never give up mine. Any law to try to make mine mine illegal would be ex post facto and Unconstitutional.
