Under the direction of Wayne LaPierre, the NRA is strong and secure – well-positioned to chart its course for the future.”

Together, we will continue to confront our adversaries, and fight for our freedoms and values. We are resolute in our mission as America’s greatest defender of constitutional freedom.”
