Last night, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre gave the keynote speech at the 2013 Western Hunting & Conservation Expo in Salt Lake City, in which he discussed the real purpose behind so-called “universal background checks” for gun sales. It was an excellent speech in front of a packed house of Second Amendment supporters, none of whom appeared to be drooling or even crazed.

“This is the strongest, best nation on the planet — because our Constitution and our Bill of Rights imparts the greatest freedom on earth. We, all of us, standing here right now will stand together and fight and, by God together, we will prevail in defending our freedoms!”
Update: For those planning to attend the NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, tickets are on sale now for some of the events, including the Friday afternoon Stand and Fight Leadership Forum and Saturday evening’s Stand and Fight Rally. These events will probably sell out, so it’s a good idea to purchase tickets now.
