SHOTLIST:NRA - COURTESY NRA Reno, Nevada - January 22, 20131. SOUNDBITE: Wayne LaPierre/Executive Vice President, NRA:'yesterday in his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama quoted the Declaration of Independence. And he talked about unalienable rights. I would argue that his words make a mockery of both.2. SOUNDBITE: Wayne LaPierre/Executive Vice President, NRA:Obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. He wants you, all of you, and Americans all over this country to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit.3. SOUNDBITE: Wayne LaPierre/Executive Vice President, NRA:We're told that to stop insane killers we must accept less freedom. Less than the criminal class and the political elites. Less than they keep for themselves. We're told that limits on magazine capacity or bans on 100 year old firearm technology, bans that only will affect lawful people, will somehow make us safer.4. SOUNDBITE: Wayne LaPierre/Executive Vice President, NRA:He wants to put every lawful firearms transaction right under the thumb of the federal government. And he wants to keep all of those names in a massive federal registry. There's only to reasons for a federal list on gunowners: To either tax 'em or take 'em. It's the only reason. And anyone who says that's excessive, President Obama says you're an absolutist.5. SOUNDBITE: Wayne LaPierre/Executive Vice President, NRA:He's more than well to demonize his opponents, silence his critics and slur the NRA. In the words of Senator Charles Schumer, as an extremist, fringe group.STORYLINE:A top National Rifle Association official on Tuesday accused President Barack Obama of seeking to redefine the rights of gun owners, telling a hunting and wildlife conservation group that the president's use of the word "absolutism" in his inauguration speech was an attack on law-abiding citizens who own firearms. Obama said in his speech Monday that Americans shouldn't "mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate." The remark was interpreted by the NRA as a reference to the organization's steadfast opposition to any new gun regulations. NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre told a Weatherby Foundation awards ceremony that the Second Amendment gives Americans the unfettered right to own a firearm, but the president wants to redefine that freedom. "Absolutes do exist, words do have specific meaning in language and in law," he said. The president wants Americans to believe that "putting the federal government in the middle of every gun transaction" will make them safer, LaPierre said. But the NRA believes people have the right to defend themselves and their families with semi-automatic firearms technology, he said. "No government gave them to us and no government can take them away." Obama last week unveiled a set of legislative proposals and executive actions on firearms that were formulated in the wake of last month's Connecticut school shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead. The NRA responded to the proposals by posting a Web video that labeled Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for allowing his daughters to be protected by armed guards while not embracing a proposal _ supported by the NRA _ that would place armed guards at all schools. The organization has also planned an aggressive lobbying push to thwart new gun regulations and has been raising money in response to the outcry for new gun laws. LaPierre's speech on Tuesday was billed as a response to Obama's inaugural address.(****END****)
