National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre released a video responding to a ruling by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors this week that declared the NRA a terrorist organization.

The video shows that the more than 5 million members of the group are hard-working Americans with very diverse backgrounds.

LaPierre says in a speech in Indianapolis in the video:

"I want all the media to look around this room right now and see us for the American people that we truly are. We are law-abiding Americans who believe liberty is a blessing. We love our country. I promise you we’re never going to stop fighting for your right and folks just like you all over America that have the right to defend themselves. So, we’re not going to give up or apologize that in a dangerous world, the Second Amendment is often all we have. Every one of these Americans are what we’re about."
