The National Rifle Association has taken cryptic note of the White House following President Obama’s very vocal push toward gun control as a part of his future legacy. NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre says that Mr. Obama has chosen to attack “what he misunderstands most about America — the Second Amendment, gun owners and the NRA.” Mr. La Pierre also has issued an invitation to the president via a public video message.

“I’ll tell you what. I’ll meet you for a one on one, one-hour debate with a mutually agreed upon moderator on any network that will take it. No prescreened questions and no gas bag answers. Americans will judge for themselves who they trust and believe on this issue. You or the NRA?” Mr. LaPierre advises in the new video.

“Let’s see if you’re game for a fair debate. It’s your chance to show the American people that you’re not afraid to meet the NRA on neutral ground,” he says.

“Let me be clear: The NRA will fight this illegal overreach more aggressively than we have ever challenged anything.”
