NRA – EVP Wayne LaPierre February 18, 2010

Truth and Justice

It was my privilege to speak at the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C., this week. It’s always an amazing experience to be with so many committed defenders of our Second Amendment rights, and looking out over the sea of younger faces, it’s good to know that the next generation treasures its birthright and inheritance as much as my generation does.

I told the CPAC crowd that I’m always asked how the NRA has achieved its success, not just in Washington, but in statehouses across this nation. The answer is simple, and it doesn’t matter if we’re talking about our success in getting Right-to-Carry laws established in 48 of the 50 states, helping legislatures pass Castle Doctrine legislation or fighting draconian gun bans.

The NRA is successful because of three little words: Truth and Justice.
The NRA refuses to tell the American people anything but the truth. The NRA demands justice for all. And because we’ve held firm to our deepest convictions, the American people trust and respect the NRA like no other organization in Washington. That’s the simple secret of our success.

We live in a time that seems uncertain. Great challenges remain. The NRA will face these challenges the same way we’ve always faced them, with truth and justice on our side. When we argue before the Supreme Court next month in favor of incorporating the Second Amendment against state and local government intrusion, we’ll do so with truth and justice on our side. When we fight for the rights of Americans to protect themselves against violent criminals, we’ll do so with truth and justice on our side. And eventually, inevitably, invariably, truth and justice will prevail.
