ABSTRACT
The article profiles Wayne LaPierre, head of the National Rifle Association (NRA) advocacy group, as of 2013. It notes he has been among the more hard-line officials of the organization in his stance against gun control. It describes him as shy and lacking in people skills, and discusses these characteristics in relation to his leadership of the group. Topics include power struggles between moderates and hard-liners within the NRA, LaPierre's view of U.S. President Barack Obama, and the passage of a 1986 law loosening U.S. gun control.
