NRA chief: Obama wants to tax or take your guns

National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre defiantly accused President Barack Obama of wanting to put private gun sales "under the thumb of the federal government" and to create a list of gun owners for two reasons -- "to tax them or take them."

LaPierre spoke to a hunting awards dinner in Nevada on Tuesday, one day after Obama, in his second inaugural address, said that the nation "cannot mistake absolutism for principle."

LaPierre told the dinner that anybody who questions the administration's principles is labeled by the White House as an absolutist, which LaPierre called "Obama code for extremist."

"Barack Obama is saying that the only principled way to make children safe is to make lawful citizens less safe and violent criminals more safe," LaPierre said, according to a transcript provided by the NRA.
