FILE - In this April 14, 2012, file photo, Wayne LaPierre Jr., Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Rifle Association speaks at its members annual meeting during its national convention in St. Louis. LaPierre, 63, has been serving up heated us-vs.-them rhetoric to rally the NRA faithful. Usually it works; sometimes it backfires. He has had a surprisingly long run surviving insider plots along the way, and remains the hero to many a gun lover, and villain to the opposing forces.
