ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, attacked Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday, saying she was out to take away Americans' gun rights. Speaking at a conference of conservatives outside Washington, LaPierre played a video clip of Clinton declaring that "I will stand up to the gun lobby." "She's been clear about one thing. She hates the Second Amendment. She hates us, and she's coming after every single bit of our freedom," LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference, a large annual gathering of conservative Republicans. "Mrs. Clinton, If you want to come after the NRA and if you want to fight over the God-given rights of America's 100 million gun owners, if you want to turn this election into a bare-knuckled brawl for the survival of our constitutional freedoms, bring it on," LaPierre told the cheering crowd. "In November, we're bringing the fight to you," he added.
