LaPierre: Defend 2nd Amendment

Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association and a 2nd amendment advocate, speaks to state Sen. Steve Vick, R-Dalton Gardens, and Vick's daughter, Tia. LaPierre was one of the guest speakers at the Tea Party Patriots gathering at the Stateline Speedway Friday night. I'll have more photos and information about this event Monday.

Americans can't be gun-shy about defending the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association said on Friday night. Wayne LaPierre told 545 people attending the first Great Northwest "Clingers" Festival and Second Amendment Rally sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots of North Idaho at Stateline Speedway that our rights are being attacked like never before. "The elites don't care about us," he said under sunny skies. "Protection is in our own hands"/Brian Walker, CdA Press. More here.

Question: Have you ever attended a Tea Party event? And/or: Are you a 2nd amendment advocate?
