Washington, DC — 20 years ago, the NRA’s Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre gave a speech in which he made it clear the NRA was in favor of “gun free” schools.
Here is his quote: “We believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools.That means no guns in America’s schools. Period.”
The New American reported it this way: “It will surprise many Americans, including many NRA members, to learn that LaPierre testified in favor of the Gun-Free School Zones he now decries, when President Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno were pushing their ambitious attacks on the 2nd Amendment.”
Here’s the video of LaPierre in 1999:
Those are words right out of the horse’s mouth.
