National Rifle Association Launches Live News Web Site

Tuesday, April 27, 2004

Making good on his promise that "the NRA will not be silenced," on Friday, April 16, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre unveiled NRANews.com an Internet news portal that features daily live broadcasts of Second Amendment-related news and opinion.

"NRANews.com is freedom`s last channel, the only place you can get the information you need to preserve freedom in this year`s elections—news and views now banned on TV and radio," said LaPierre. "The U.S. Supreme Court let Congress rewrite the First Amendment to muzzle our voice during the elections, but we maintain that no Congress, no Supreme Court, no law, no gag order, no force or fear will ever silence the legitimate political voice of this great association."

Hosted by veteran talk show personality Cam Edwards, NRANews.com is a free-speech roundtable of political conversation that includes interviews with NRA`s leadership as well as other Second Amendment news makers, legislators, authors, journalists, litigators, and celebrities. Listeners will also be able to participate in live programming via an Instant Messaging feature on the site, or by calling 1-866-NRA-NEWS.

NRANews.com delivers live, broadcast-quality programming via streaming audio and video three hours every weekday, from 2-5 p.m. EST. The site also provides news briefs at 10 a.m. and noon, with a preview of the day`s upcoming show at 1 p.m. It is currently available free of charge.

In addition to live news, NRANews.com will also feature regular appearances by NRA-ILA staff and updates on national political races, Grassroots Election Workshops, and other grassroots-related activities.

"By visiting NRANews.com every day, you can watch and hear live, late-breaking news about threats to your freedoms, who`s behind them, and what you can do about it," said LaPierre. "You can also get what is increasingly being banned from American TV: the truth."
