Important Statement from NRA CEO & Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre

Washington, DC – -( NRA Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre, released this statement regarding recent conversations with President Trump on the calls for new gun control and the recent mass murders.

“I’m not inclined to discuss private conversations with President Trump or other key leaders on this issue,” says Wayne LaPierre, CEO, and EVP of the National Rifle Association.

“But I can confirm that the NRA opposes any legislation that unfairly infringes upon the rights of law-abiding citizens. The inconvenient truth is this: the proposals being discussed by many would not have prevented the horrific tragedies in El Paso and Dayton. Worse, they would make millions of law-abiding Americans less safe and less able to defend themselves and their loved ones.”

LaPierre continued, “The NRA will work in good faith to pursue real solutions to the epidemic of violence in America. But many proposals are nothing more than ‘soundbite solutions’ – which fail to address the root of the problem, confront criminal behavior, or make our communities safer.”

  1. In the mid-80s, I submitted a discussion about Gun Control to the American Rifleman. It was rejected by a non-American Rifleman NRA publication with some prattle about their readers being interested in fishing and hunting. Although an SASE was provided, the submission was not returned.

    A couple years back, “Gun Control is not about Controlling Guns” was submitted to American Handgunner. After a very lengthy delay, it was published as “Controlling Guns” with parts removed and the most serious change being from factual to supposition: “innocence from guilt” to “innocence from ‘guilt'”.

    Both oppose the idea that there is no difference between a “good man with a gun” and a “bad man with a gun” because both are human and no justification exists for using deadly force against a human being. Both oppose the idea that there is no difference between murdering innocence and killing guilt. Both oppose the idea that armed innocence is, by itself, and act of guilt.

    Stated concisely: If compassion for innocence is guilt, I choose guilt.

    –Once, and always
