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.

As they say in Texas, the president’s 90 percent is all hat and no cattle
NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre addressed the crowd at the 2013 NRA Annual Meeting of Members inside the George R. Brown Center in Houston, Texas:
Houston, Texas - At this gathering one year ago, I predicted that our freedom might soon face its greatest threat ever. I spent the past year warning gun owners all over this country that, if re-elected, President Obama would launch an all-out, historic assault against the Second Amendment and the personal freedom of hundreds of millions of law-abiding Americans.

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.

NRA signs on to sponsor NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in April
Fort Worth, Texas - Earlier this week, Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage announced that the National Rifle Association has agreed to serve as title sponsor for a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at the speedway later this year. Now known as the NRA 500, the race will take place on April 13.
"The NRA has been involved in the sport for several years and a partner of Speedway Motorsports, Inc., for many years in various aspects, and this race entitlement is just another extension of that business relationship," Gossage said in a news release. "I suspect we’ll sell a lot of tickets to their members and folks who support their position on America’s rights and freedoms and the Second Amendment."

Explains how Universal Background Checks are the universal registration of your firearms
Salt Lake City, Utah - On Saturday, February 23rd, NRA Executive Vice President addressed the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo in Salt Lake City. The following is Mr. LaPierre's response to call for Universal Background Checks:
I know that you, as gun owners and NRA members, deeply care about our Second Amendment freedom in the United States. The Second Amendment is not just words on parchment. It was not a frivolous “suggestion” from our Founding Fathers to be interpreted according to whim. It lies at the very heart of what this country was founded upon. Our Founding Fathers knew that without the Second Amendment,
all of our other freedoms could be in jeopardy. Our individual freedoms — that we have as American citizens — are
the very essence of America. They are what make America unique.

Nashville, Tennessee - On Thursday, February 14th, NRA Executive Vice President spoke to those attending the National Wild Turkey Federation's 37th Convention in Nashville. The following is Mr. LaPierre's response to President Obama's State of the Union Address:
Two nights ago, President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union Address. In that speech, the president displayed a level of political fraud and public deception that cannot be ignored.
Before we get to that, let’s go back about two months. Days after tragedy struck Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, the president held a press conference at the White House.
