Important Statement from NRA CEO & Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre

Clear and open communication from NRA. READ MORE



“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.”

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation’s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.

  1. No laws will help fix the problem, “It is unlawful to.” That simple statement only applies to criminals, lawful citizens don’t break the law. Only criminals do.

  2. How about a comment on what’s going on at the NRA? Who is telling the truth? Where is OUR money being spent? The Board of Directors has a fiduciary responsibility to take care of OUR money and see that it is being used responsibly. So is the law firm being paid an unreasonable rate? Is Wayne spending too much on his clothes? Has the NRA become another organization that is more interested in taking care of itself and it’s big wigs rather than what their mission is supposed to be? Is it time for a housecleaning? I’m not giving any more money until I hear what is happening up there.

    1. Tom, you’ve stated , quite eloquently I might add, what most of the current and former NRA membership believes. If only Wayne didn’t have such an over-inflated ego, he could see that the dark clouds currently hanging over the NRA are centered directly over his head. If he did, he would do the right thing and LEAVE!

  3. Thank you Wayne for your many years of service. Time to go. You may bow out gracefully or leave kicking & screaming. Not another penny until you are gone and the Board starts overseeing operations
