A crowd of more than 10,000 at the NRA’s Celebration of American Values Freedom Experience stood and roared.

While the night was aimed at a gun-loving crowd, the headliners derided the “Marxist revolutionaries” in the Obama administration as they celebrated veterans and the Second Amendment. With midterm elections less than six months away, they spoke of an urgency to renew America at the polls.

“Your mission,” Gingrich said, “is to organize at every level … and to simply, decisively beat all (liberal-leaning candidates) and get this country back on track.”

Beck said the nation’s debt poses a danger: “Our debt is over twice the size of everything we own. You got it?”

Backed by his familiar chalkboard, Beck depicted a nation that has lost its faith in God, honor and American institutions.
