“Let me tell you right here and right now, the NRA will not submit. We will not allow them to define the Second Amendment in their terms. We will not surrender our freedoms,” said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre to thousands gathered at CPAC 2021.

LaPierre spoke at length about how politicians, including the current administration, have weaponized government power to attack the Second Amendment and this country’s oldest and most-successful civil rights organization: the NRA.

“To President Biden, Schumer, Pelosi and their media elite, I say if you don’t care about our Second Amendment right to protect ourselves, then you don’t care about us at all,” said LaPierre before reciting the pledge of allegiance with the crowd, which was in turn followed by “USA” chants.

Freedom-loving Americans know that exercise of the Second Amendment fosters independence and strengthens a sense responsibility, the antithesis of what these anti-gun politicians are pushing upon the populace. With strength in numbers, NRA members have fought back against oppressive overreach time and again.

“When you stand for freedom, you get more of it. And NRA members standing together over the past four decades have achieved a historic restoration of freedom for which all Americans can be thankful, but I beg you, never ever forget that it all could’ve been lost like is sadly the case in so many other countries,” said LaPierre, referencing the NRA’s decades of achievement.

He concluded by reaffirming how the millions of freedom-loving Americans and NRA members are strongest when they stand together against the oppression of anti-freedom politicians and media elites.

“I say that with full confidence because of people like you, never forget that your voice resonates far beyond this room. It carries far beyond the walls of your own home and when you’re an NRA member, it resonates even farther and wider, carrying the weight of tens of millions of NRA members and even more Americans who support our cause and look to us for leadership. There is no more unstoppable force in the history of politics than NRA members and I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt, our enemies know that, too. A strong NRA wins,” said LaPierre.
