During his CPAC speech this afternoon, Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association Wayne LaPierre made clear that a second term for President Obama means a full blown attack on the Second Amendment. He also warned the NRA will do whatever it takes to prevent his reelection.
 

“The media won’t win this election, gun owners will,” LaPierre said.
“Gun owners and Americans who care about our great freedom are stepping up and supporting our cause.”


LaPierre pointed out that a second Obama term means the possibility of three new Supreme Court Justices taking a seat on the bench. He classified Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan as “two of the most rabidly anti-gun justices in history,” warning Obama would surely appoint three more justices just like them in a second term.

He also talked extensively about Operation Fast and Furious, saying it was used to slander the reputation of honest gun dealers and to push gun control through the back door. He even compared the behavior of the Justice Department and the White House to dictatorships..

“That’s the kind of thing you would expect from a South American dictator,” Pierre said referencing the ongoing attack on honest gun dealers from this administration.
“The department of justice launched a criminal enterprise.”

He pinned the ongoing cover-up of the program on the White House and NBC for refusing to report the story.

“After allowing his Justice Department to become an accessory to murder, how does the president even look at the mirror,” he said. “The fact that Eric Holder hasn’t been fired, is a disgrace…forget fired, somebody  be in jail.”
