The head of the National Rifle Association says conservatives should stand up for themselves if "the violent left brings their terror into our communities."

Wayne LaPierre spoke Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he showed videos of violent protesters. He asked the crowd if they were ready to take on the left.

LaPierre said: "Show them you won't submit. We will not be intimidated."

He says members of the NRA helped President Donald Trump win the election, that "Americans wanted a fire, and we got one."

He also argues the media is a threat, saying, "You're not going to win, and you will not defeat us."
