‘Our moment to go on offense’: NRA makes big plans for Trump presidency
- “This is our historic moment to go on offense,” NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre told members in a post-election video address.
- LaPierre pledged to go after the “tyrannical erosion of gun rights” in the relatively small number of states with very strict gun control laws, such as New York and California. He assailed their “deceitful web of gun bans, ammo bans, magazine bans, exorbitant fees, and taxes and registration schemes”.
- The NRA’s priority is a federal law that would make gun-carrying permits issued in one state valid across the country, which would make carrying a concealed firearm across the country as easy as driving your car across state lines.
