The head of the National Rifle Association blasted President Obama Wednesday over his gun control actions in an 8-minute video, saying the president has “laid waste to the America we remember” and challenging the commander-in-chief to a one-on-one debate on the Second Amendment.
“When it comes to the runaway power of the executive branch over Congress, the courts, the people and the rule of law, the president has laid waste to the America we remember,” NRA president Wayne LaPierre said in the fiery address, delivered with a background of ominous music, before addressing Obama directly.
“Americans will judge for themselves who they believe and trust on this issue – you or the NRA. Let’s see if you’re game for a fair debate,” LaPierre said. “It’s your chance to show the American people you’re not afraid to meet the NRA on neutral ground.”
