Among today’s speakers at the Conservative Political Action Conference are Vice President Mike Pence, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Senator Ted Cruz. President Trump will speak at CPAC tomorrow and the audience will also hear from NRA President Wayne LaPierre, though what he will say in the midst of the media storm surrounding the Parkland shooting is being kept under wraps.
With the gun control debate heating up in Washington in the wake of the Parkland shooting, the CEO of the National Rifle Association is keeping details about his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference under wraps – apparently as a precaution.
A spokesman for the NRA confirmed to Fox News that Wayne LaPierre will speak at the conservative conference, which kicked off Wednesday outside Washington.
But unlike for other speakers, information about his appearance was not publicly released.
A time for the speech has not been finalized, the spokesman said. The Washington Examiner reported that his name is deliberately being kept off the schedule as a precaution due to possible outrage from anti-gun protesters in the wake of the shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
