The National Rifle Association’s Executive Director weighed in on the upcoming Presidential election and conjured a specter of a “fixed” run by the Clinton machine on the White House.
Speaking at the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action’s Leadership Forum in Louisville on Friday, LaPierre took the stage to speak of Freedom and uniting against the former Secretary of State at the polls in November.
“We in this room, we are America,” said LaPierre before railing on “political elites” who are assembling to support Clinton, even going so far as lament the floundering Bernie Sanders campaign by association.
“To carry out that transformation and finish the job,” said LaPierre, “there are rooms where handpicked super delegates have rigged the election and circumvented voters to coronate Hillary Rodham Clinton into the White House.”
Contending that corruption and failure have haunted Clinton’s career, LaPierre held up the 2012 attack on Benghazi, a nuclear Iran and other threats allowed to fester during her term as head of the State Department.
Next, the NRA boss switched gears and told the packed crowd at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center’s Freedom Hall that Clinton intended to smash the Second Amendment.
“If she could, Hillary would ban every gun, destroy every magazine, run an entire national security industry right into the ground, and put your name on a government registration list,” said LaPierre. “If she gets her hands on the Supreme Court and stacks it with just one more justice, every total gun ban she dreams, every confiscation scheme that she craves, will stand up in her court and we all will be kissing our Second Amendment freedom goodbye.”
Shortly after LaPierre wrapped up his speech, the NRA- ILA’s Executive Director Chris W. Cox formally announced the gun rights group’s endorsement of presumptive Republican candidate Donald Trump for President of the United States.
