(CNN) – The Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association is firing back at President Obama for comments made during the President’s State of the Union address.

Wayne LaPierre spoke to a crowd in Nashville this evening (Thursday) at a convention held by the National Wild Turkey Federation.

LaPierre says the President did not mention anything on Tuesday night about keeping our children safe at school.

Instead he believes President Obama is more interested in taking away the rights of Americans.

“A year ago I began to warn American gun owners all over this country that if re-elected President Obama would set about dismantling the Second Amendment to our constitution of the United States. There were no more elections to worry about. The President would wait for the right political opportunity to exploit and launch the most aggressive campaign in history to destroy our Second Amendment rights.” said Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association Wayne LaPierre.

During the State of the Union address, President Obama urged Congress to vote on tougher gun laws.
