NRA leader predict victory

The National Rifle Association is on the opposite side of the president of the United States and, in many cases, public opinion.

But the group's president, David Keene, predicted Thursday that the NRA will still come out on the winning side. 

Keene told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor that bills to several gun control measures will likely fail in Congress.

“Our opponents…hope they can use emotion to achieve an anti-firearms agenda that they haven’t been able to achieve in the past," Keene said. “People are smarter than politicians, and common sense ultimately prevails. … We’ve had that discussion at various decibel levels over the last several decades, and it’s always come out that way and I expect it to happen again.”
