Wayne LaPierre, a top National Rifle Association (NRA) official, said the left is focused on taking guns away from law abiding citizens rather than fixing violent crime. While speaking at CPAC on Sunday, the American gun rights activist accused Democrat officials of wielding the power to wash up the streets.

However, LaPierre said top Democrats, including Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, are using homicide numbers to spark a war against the Second Amendment. He added, officials could reduce crime rates without targeting guns if they would only enforce the gun laws already in place.

LaPierre promised CPAC that the NRA will continue to fight for Second Amendment advocates, no matter how much the liberal media tries to smear them.
