NRA's LaPierre: Every American Needs to "Be Prepared" For Future Attacks on U.S.


NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre warns that everybody needs a security plan, "because they're coming and they're going to try to kill us, and we need to be prepared." Transcript, via CBS News:

DICKERSON: Donald Trump has suggesting concealed-carry in nightclub, where people are drinking? Is that a good idea?

LAPIERRE: I don't think you should have firearms where people are drinking.

This federal government, that attorney general, Janet (sic) Lynch, they're not enforcing any of the federal gun laws. They're letting it happen night after night after night.
