NRA sets news conference at hotel across from White House
The head of the National Rifle Association will discuss gun control and violence in the United States on a weekend television talk show, as the group mounts its response to the Connecticut school shootings.

NRA Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre will appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, his first interview since the killing of 20 young children and six adults at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, last Friday.

The show said LaPierre would talk about gun control and "what he thinks should be done to curb the threat of violence in America" during his appearance.

The group, one of the most powerful lobbying groups in the United States, kept largely quiet in the first days after the Newtown shootings. It broke its silence on Tuesday to say it wanted to contribute meaningfully to prevent another massacre like the Connecticut shooting and would hold a "major" news conference on Friday.

That news conference will take place on Friday morning at a hotel across the street from the White House, the NRA said on Thursday.

A powerful force in Washington and beyond, the NRA uses political pressure against individual lawmakers in the U.S. Congress and in state legislatures to press for loosening restrictions on gun sales and ownership while promoting hunting and gun sports.
