Wagan from Texas is youngest, Arkansas' Burd repeats as oldest champ
Houston, Texas - "This morning, we will continue the long standing tradition of recognizing the youngest and the oldest life members in attendance at the NRA Annual Meeting of Members."
Those were the words of NRA President David Keene. In the opening minutes of Saturday's Annual Meeting of Members, the search for the cornerstones of NRA's Life Membership began. Wrangled by Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's littlest members were asked to stand with their parents as LaPierre counted down the years. If we call out the year you were born, please sit down. One by one the numbers dwindled. When he reached 2009, only one pair was still standing.

Sanity has been sequestered in Washington - says NRA's LaPeirre
Washington, DC - On the morning of March 15, 2013, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPeirre spoke to thousands of students attending the 40th Annual Conservative Political Action Conference. The subject of his speech included Universal Background Checks, mental health records and school safety. The following is a transcript of those remarks.
It’s great to be here today, among so many friends, and I appreciate your warm welcome. As you might imagine, I don’t get invited to many parties in this town. That’s okay. I came to Washington when I was about your age, but I didn’t come here to be popular. I came here to stand for what I believe is true.
The political elites may not like it. The liberal media can keep hating on me. But I’m still standing, unapologetic and unflinching in defense of our individual freedom. They can call me crazy and whatever else they want, but NRA’s nearly 5 million members and America’s 100 million gun owners will not back down — not now, not ever.
