Exile Quote from NRA Web Site

Direct Quotes about Project Exile from the NRA Web Site

What Project Exile REALLY Means

Wayne LaPierre:

"Armed gangbangers should be afraid of getting caught. But in the past 2 years, the President's Justice Department has prosecuted only 11 juveniles anywhere in the country for illegal possession of handguns."

[This could be your 15 boy or girl to whom you have given a .22 revolver to go shoot cans at a rural dump, or to go plinking at the country home of a friend. YOU YOURSELF can be criminally prosecuted for giving him or her the gun. And the "Winning Team" wants you to bePROSECUTED. Remember: ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]

--Quote above taken From NRA WEBSITE on ad campaign:


Wayne LaPierre:

"First, we believe in absolutely gun-free, zero-tolerance, totally safe schools. That means no guns
in America's schools, period ... with the rare exception of law enforcement officers or trained se
curity personnel."

[This means no ROTC marksmanship programs at schools. This means that if you have a CCW "permit" from your state, and you have your carry pistol in the trunk of your car, and you drive into a school parking lot, then you're an instant felon. Don't think you'd be prosecuted? Don't bet on it.]


"The National Rifle Association believes in no unsupervised youth access to guns, period. We have a lways supported holding adults responsible for willfully and recklessly allowing access to firearms."

[This means that even if you leave a gun in a safe place, if your child gains access to it -even by accident, and even if no crime or accident occurs involving the gun-YOU become a felon if a jury decides to convict you. And by the way, so much for Thomas Jefferson's advice about giving young men a firearm to shorten and straighten their path into manhood and responsibility. So much for hundreds of years of American outdoors tradition. The "Winning Team" says "Flush it all down the toilet."]


"So we support mandatory penalties for juvenile criminals caught carrying guns. But out of the thousands of these armed teen thugs, we believe the Clinton Justice Department should have prosecuted more than just 3 in 1997 and 8 in 1998. That's not zero tolerance."

[This mean that if your minor child is caught hunting or plinking by himself with a handgun, he BECOMES a felon--and the "Winning Team" wants him PROSECUTED. Remember--ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU and YOUR FAMILY.]


"We believe that a lawful, properly-permitted citizen who chooses to carry a concealed firearm not only deserves that right, but is a deterrent to crime. We support the right to carry because it has helped cut crime rates in all 31 states that have adopted it ... with almost no abuse of any kind
by the lawful citizens who took the courses, submitted to the background checks, passed the tests and became part of a proud citizens movement that's making America a safer place to live. The truth is, very few actually choose to carry a gun -- but the bad guys don't know which few they are."

["took the courses"? "passed the tests"? So much for the Second Amendment! So much for "shall not be infringed"! So much for the "right" to bear arms! A right that requires taking courses and passing tests is not a right, it is a privilege granted by the government and revocable by the government.]

--Quotes above from Wayne La Pierre on NRA website, at:

Wayne LaPierre:

“But the baseline ought to be, if you catch a felon with a gun, a felon trying to buy a gun, a violent juvenile, a violent gang member with a gun, they ought to be prosecuted.”

[The “Winning Team” wants these unconstitutional laws enforced -- but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]


“Some of these are being prosecuted at the local level. But the truth is, and the criminals know it, if they are, they get a slap on wrist not a long jail sentence. If you're prosecuted at the federal level, you serve 85 percent of your sentence, not a fourth of your sentence or a fifth of your sentence like at the state level.”

[The “Winning Team” wants these unconstitutional laws enforced – but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]


“The federal level you have speedy trials. They have the ability to deny bail. They also eliminate judge shopping and that's going on all over the country. We ought to also computerize the records of those adjudicated mentally incompetent by a court of law so that they'll be flagged on the instant check system. We call that the Hinkley loophole, but they ought to computerize them.”

[The “Winning Team” wants these unconstitutional laws enforced – but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]


“Has anyone bothered to look at the figures? Of those 4700, 4000 of them are 15- to 19-year-old juveniles. Everything they're doing is already prohibited and illegal with guns. And they're not being taken off the streets and they're not being prosecuted under these existing federal laws.”

[The “Winning Team” wants these unconstitutional laws enforced – but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]


“You want to stop those children, as the President calls them, from dying, and we all do. You enforce the federal laws on the books against them to cut at the heart of the culture of violence, you'll do those juveniles a favor and you'll do the country a favor.”

[The “Winning Team” wants these unconstitutional laws enforced – but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]


“But the truth is a tough criminal justice system with tough, no-nonsense enforcement of the federal laws we have on the books and tough gun prosecution of the federal laws we have on the books will cut to the heart of this culture of violence the President talks about.”

[The “Winning Team” wants these unconstitutional laws enforced – but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]


“Prosecute and enforce the Gun-Free School Zones Act will at least give us a chance. You can't say zero tolerance and not mean it and not prosecute.” [This means that if you have a CCW “permit” from your state, you have your carry gun in the trunk of your car, and you drive into a school parking lot, you’re an instant felon—and the “Winning Team” wants you PROSECUTED.]


“As I said, it's OK to raise the penalties on illegal possession of guns by juveniles, but why do only prosecute 11 in the whole country when we're talking about the gangbangers that are killing people on the streets of this country?”

[Juveniles should be able to own and use firearms as they always have in this country - at their parents’ discretion. The federal government has no business keeping juveniles from owning a handgun or any other gun if his or her parents deem them responsible enough.]

--Quotes above taken from Wayne La Pierre speech found on NRA website at:


Charlton Heston:

“For years the NRA has demanded that Project Exile be deployed nationwide. Makes sense, huh? The laws are already on the books. Just enforce them. But Bill Clinton won't do it. When he says he's serious about fighting crime, consider that as a matter of policy -- as a matter of policy - the Clinton Administration is not prosecuting violations of federal gun law. In fact, they reversed the Bush Administration's policy of prosecuting felons with guns. Instead, with plea bargains, a wink and a nod, they've been letting armed felons off the hook. From 1992 to 1998, prosecutions have been cut almost in half.”

[The “Winning Team” wants these unconstitutional laws enforced – but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]


“Everyone remembers all the press support for his "desperately needed" semi-auto gun ban -- that outlawed guns based solely on their appearance. But nobody is reporting that, out of thousands of certain offenders, the Clinton Administration prosecuted four people in 1997 and four in 1998.

[Read that again—the “Winning Team” is complaining that only FOUR of your fellow citizens were prosecuted for buying, selling, or some other act related to possession of these perfectly constitutional militia rifles. Are you in violation of the unconstitutional ’94 Crime Bill, which we all fought so hard to prevent being passed? Then the “Winning Team” wants you PROSECUTED.]


“It's surreal. Mr. Clinton stands in the Rose Garden with his ten prop cops, lip-biting in pained support of some new law. The press does its best to get it passed. It becomes law. Then everybody forgets about it. And Americans buy it over and over and over again.
Maybe you think a politician's lies can't hurt you. But let me tell you, armed felons can.  Passing laws is what keeps politicians' careers alive. Enforcing laws is what keeps you alive. But nobody's getting arrested, nobody's going to jail, it's all a giant scam.”

[Read that again—the “Winning Team” doesn’t want these unconstitutional laws to be forgotten. It wants people arrested and sent to jail. It wants these unconstitutional laws enforced – but ALL OF THESE LAWS apply to YOU, too.]
