NRA's LaPierre Calls For Change This Election Day

posted on October 10, 2016
Addressing the audience at the Bakersfield (Calif.) Business Conference on Saturday, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said it is time to take our nation back from elitists who think they know what is best for us.

"America is no longer a government of the people by the people,” LaPierre said. “It has over time, more and more, become a government of the elites by the elites. Our morning in America has become the winter of America’s discontent.”

Fortunately, Americans are standing up for freedom—and NRA stands with them.

“What I love about the NRA is, it’s an organization that stands on principle, it’s unafraid to speak the truth and it is unflinching in the fight for all that is good and right in America,” LaPierre said.
