Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president and CEO of the National Rifle Association, said Thursday if Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton wants a fight in November, his group will oblige.

“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,” Mr. LaPierre said at the 2016 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Mr. LaPierre had played a recording of Mrs. Clinton pledging to “stand up to the gun lobby.”

“We aren’t going anywhere, and we aren’t hard to find,” Mr. LaPierre said. “Mrs. Clinton, we are the millions of honest, decent citizens all over this country. We love our nation. We cherish our freedom. And November, we’re bringing the fight to you.”
