Wayne LaPierre, chief executive officer and executive vice president of the NRA addressed the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. Lapierre notes that no other organization in the world has spend more money to keep Americans safe. He also talks briefly on universal background checks by stating, “There are only two reasons for government to create that federal registry of gun owners—to tax them and to take them.” LaPierre also addressed school security, sequestration and women’s self-defense. This speech originally aired live on March 15, 2013. In case you missed this live stream, you can view the recorded message here or on the NRA’s Web site.
I’m not a huge fan of the NRA but lately these guys have been doing a bang up job.
