NRA’s Wayne LaPierre claims he’s being pressured to resign
The association’s vice-president wrote a letter to the board, revealing executive infighting and threats
For more than 25 years, Wayne LaPierre has defined the aggressive, no-compromise approach of the National Rifle Association.
When 20 children were murdered in their classrooms in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012, LaPierre, the group’s executive vice-president, refused to consider any new gun control laws. “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” he told reporters.
