NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre told CBS’ John Dickerson Sunday that the best way to stop deadly terror attacks isn’t to enact stricter gun control laws, but to arm the American populace.
“The filter is take them off the streets, confront them directly, attack them,” he told Dickerson. “That’s what we’ve got to do.”
“The fact is we need to face what’s coming. They’re trying to kill us.”
LaPierre further noted that terrorists aren’t “going to attack hard targets.”
“All the hard targets are protected by the government with guns,” he explained. “They’re going to go for vulnerabilities. They’re going to go for shopping malls. They’re going to go after churches.”
“The fact is we need vigilance. We need preparedness. We need a full court press on personal protection. We need to protect ourselves.”
