NRA CEO and Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference being held in Washington, DC yesterday. In his speech, he served notice that the NRA and gun owners will make a difference on whether Obama wins a second term or not.
All of our Second Amendment liberty, all of the rights we’ve worked so hard to defend, all of what we know is good and right about America — all of it could be lost if Barack Obama is re-elected.
It’s all or nothing and I’m here to announce that gun owners, everywhere I go, are
signing on, joining up, and donating to our cause.
The fight is on and the NRA is ALL IN!
Let me put that another way.
Time after time, election after election when freedom is at risk, gun owners step up and make a difference. We’re stepping up again. We’re not backing down, and mark my words: when the sun goes down on Election Day, Barack Obama will have America’s gun owners to thank for his defeat!
He goes on to conclude his speech saying:
If you don’t remember anything else I say today, write this down: This is the most dangerous election in our lifetime. If Obama wins, we’ll go to our grave mourning the freedom we’ve lost.
This election is All In — all of our freedom, all of our rights. And that means all of you, ALL IN.
No one sits this one out. So stand up right now and you tell me, will you defend freedom with all your heart and might? Come on, stand up and let them hear you at the White House!
Will we fight to preserve our liberty and keep our nation strong and safe and free? Will we save America and our freedom? Will we save the Second Amendment from a second Obama White House?
We will not be denied our destiny, our place in the history of preserving American liberty! This is our time. Our election to rise up and fight for our rights!
We will defend our nation because we must.
We will prevail! We will prevail and we will stand for who we truly are.
WE ARE THE NRA.
WE ARE AMERICANS.
WE ARE PATRIOTS.
WE WILL DEFEND FREEDOM, AND IN THIS ELECTION WE ARE, BY GOD, ALL IN!
