NRA Will Never Waver from Protecting Gun Rights

posted on March 21, 2018

NRA Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre is using a video to reiterate the messages that the NRA has for school safety and other related issues, while still standing for the right of law-abiding citizens to own guns.

When it comes to celebrities and politicians, the answer for their safety is armed protection, LaPierre said. Why shouldn’t schools follow the same protocol?

LaPierre also addresses the NRA’s concerns over the possibility of raising the legal age for being able to purchase a long gun to 21, something the anti-gun politicians have latched onto as they try desperately to make it look like they’re doing something in the wake of the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at a Florida high school.

The rush to create more gun laws is illogical, because it paints all gun owners as bad and holds everyone who owns a firearm responsible for the misdeeds of a few. His message was clear: if the politicians were as eager to punish those involved in government failings and to take criminals who use guns in their crimes off the streets, we would be on the right road toward a safer nation.
