NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV-AP) -
National Rifle Association leader Wayne LaPierre visited Nashville to renew his call for armed guards in schools and to urge gun owners to "stand and fight" for the Second Amendment.
LaPierre spoke Thursday at the 37th annual Convention and Sport Show of the National Wild Turkey Federation at Opryland Hotel.
The speech was billed as the NRA's response after President Barack Obama once again pushed for gun control in his State of the Union address this week, calling for more reform in the wake of several mass shootings.
Obama asked Congress for background checks for all firearms purchases and bans on assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
LaPierre said the real intention is to "ban every gun they can, tax every gun sold and register every gun owner."
He said a universal background check would not stop criminals or the mentally ill from getting firearms.
The president, in his address, simply told lawmakers to vote.
"They deserve a vote. Gabby Giffords deserves a vote. The families of Newtown deserve a vote. The families of Aurora deserve a vote," Obama said Tuesday.
And that seems like it could happen. Several key Republicans have said they will not try to stop a vote on several gun-related bills.
But, the NRA continues to fight. The NRA posted a video Wednesday on its YouTube channel, pointing to an internal memo it uncovered from a top agency in Washington.
"This internal Justice Department memo says, 'An assault weapons ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence. Unlikely, that is, unless it comes with something else.' Obama's experts say that a gun ban, like the one being debated right now in Congress, will not work without mandatory gun buybacks," said NRA Executive Director Chris Cox. "That's government confiscation of legal firearms owned by honest citizens."
