NRA members filled the Annual Meeting of Members Hall in great numbers to conduct the business of their Association and to hear from top NRA Executives, including President Jim Porter, Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, and ILA Executive Director Chris Cox . Always a not-to-be-missed highlight of this historic meeting, the officers did not disappoint. Who better to give an up-to-date status report on our gun rights than those who fight the battle on the front line day in and day out in defense of our Second Amendment rights?
If you were not able to attend the 144th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Nashville this year, you don't have to miss the message that wove its way throughout the entire convention: In all of freedom's history, there has never been an organization quite like the National Rifle Association of America. No other people so alert and vigilant ... so unafraid to take a stand for what is good and right. Freedom's toughest tests have revealed that WE – the people of the NRA – represent the very best of America’s strength and character. And the next 650 days are the most dangerous days in history for the Second Amendment ... for our personal freedom.
Check out the links and quotes below for a first-hand account of the state of the Second Amendment.
Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said the road to the White House is by election, not coronation, and declared that, "We will not let our Bill of Rights be Hillary's new server, wiped from the pages of history."
Executive Director, NRA-ILA Chris Cox said that while Obama may not be going anywhere for the next 650 days, neither are NRA members. The NRA will fight to defend freedom and to take America back!
Outgoing President, James W. Porter II discussed his pride in the organization and its members. And he promised that, together, we'll make the difference in 2016.
