Skip to comments.NRA head lashes out at gun control advocates: 'They hate individual freedom'
Posted on 02/22/2018 8:15:40 AM PST by T-Bird45
Wayne LaPierre, the head of the NRA, broke his silence a week after the Florida school shooting with an unrepentant defence of gun rights and an aggressive attack on political elites who hate individual freedom. LaPierre used his address to the conservative conference CPAC to hit out at anti-gun campaigners, who, led by young survivors of the shooting, have attempted to make political headway in the last week.
They fantasise about more laws stopping what other laws have failed to stop, the National Rifle Association executive vice-president said. So many existing laws were ignored. He added: They dont care if their laws work or not. They just want to get more laws to get more control over people. But the NRA, the NRA does care.
LaPierre also hit out at the breathless national media which he said was eager to smear the NRA in the midst of genuine grief. Elites want to eliminate our firearms freedoms and eradicate all the individual freedoms, he said. They hate the NRA, they hate the second amendment, they hate individual freedom.

All of this BS made me jump on Gunbroker today and buy another gun.. A beautiful CZ Bren carbine in FDE.....
Statists are thrilled when a mass shooting occurs.
Disarming citizens is one of their highest priorities.
“Lashes out” means “speaks the truth”, apparently.
>’They hate individual freedom’
Yep. Not just the second. They want to get around the 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 10th and any other amendment that’s inconvenient. Of course they want the 10th when that’s the convenient position (for illegals, or pot, or other liberal causes) It’s all about “the correct gov’t” having control and individuals not being able to exercise our rights.
When Wayne was first presented as a candidate for President of the NRA, I wasn’t too sure.
This guy is fantastic. We are so lucky to have him.
So true, and people know it despite the fake and hate filled media.
Just heard a bit of his speech on a local mid-morning radio talk show.
Furthermore, they aren't stupid about our history and traditions. The American Revolutionary War heritage of "hiding behind rocks and trees", our unique tactics that brought down the tyranny of the British Crown....is NOT lost on them.
The line in the sand is the American rifle. The Brits tried to confiscate them, and the elites have been attempting to repeat this folly ever since.
Stand fast fellow patriots!
You guys keep up those buys and Trump will become the new “National Gun Salesman of the Year” to bypass old jug
It is also about the future of the USSC as well.
“I also ordered another Glock for the collection yesterday!”
In my personal opinion, the best 9mm platform is the Glock 19.
If Baltimore store owners were armed with AR-15s in Baltimore during the Freddie Gray riots April 2015 there would have been open stores in those neighborhoods the next day.
Outstanding speech! He spoke the truth.
Liberalism is a religion that places Government as God. Because of that, It’s not surprising that they continue to believe more laws are the answer. Writing and passing more laws is their form of prayer and supplication.
Upgraded my membership to Life yesterday...
No. While they hate these things what they really hate is the reality of an armed American populace. That hate is born of fear, the same fear the Japanese had during WWII.
