The NRA has come under heavy attack from gun control advocates and legacy media, the group’s newly appointed president, Oliver North, said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”

“This is a time when you need a marine at the top of the pyramid at the National Rifle Association. It’s under attack,” North said. “Quite frankly, I have never seen anything quite like it. They’ve hacked into almost everything they could. They’ve threatened officers, directors, the staff. The harassment goes beyond simply yelling at people. It now includes vandalism. It’s slashed tires and broken windshields and things like that.”

North said he was put in charge to spread the NRA’s message of freedom and to help promote the protection of the Second Amendment.

“We have a message to get out to the American people. It’s a very straightforward message,” North concluded. “The NRA was created in 1871 to teach the safe handling of firearms, marksmanship, and protection of the Second Amendment. Very simple. Not out to take anything from anybody. We want to do is help everybody keep their freedom.”
