NRA lobby chief: We will never surrender our guns

A leader of an influential gun rights lobbying group implored members Saturday at the organization's yearly national convention, to never give up their weapons in the wake of recent gun control efforts in Congress that he said would "destroy us and every ounce of our freedom."


A defiant Wayne LaPierre, the National Rifle Association's executive vice president, said the "political and media elites" were trying to use December's Newtown, Connecticut school massacre and other recent incidents "to blame us, to shame us, to compromise our freedom for their agenda." (AP)
