NRA Response to Gun Control Lobby`s Irresponsible Statement

Thursday, March 3, 2005

Referring to the Five-seveN handgun in a press conference by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Mike Barnes today suggested that the NRA`s President, Wayne LaPierre, "put on a bullet proof vest, and we`ll fire the weapon at him, and see what happens. He should put
his body where his mouth is."

NRA Response: It is pathetic to see the gun control lobby make hysterical statements to resurrect their failed political agenda. According to the BATFE, this armor-piercing ammunition is only available to the military and police. The Brady Campaign continues to deceive the American people in their effort to ban firearm ownership by all law-abiding Americans.
