HOUSTON

The leadership of the National Rifle Association is telling its members that the fight against gun-control legislation is far from over, with battles yet to come in Congress and next year’s midterm elections.

But NRA leaders vowed that none of its members would ever have to surrender their weapons.

Proponents of gun control also asserted that they are in it for the long haul and are not disheartened by last month’s defeat of a bill that would have expanded background checks for gun sales.

Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and other NRA leaders spoke Saturday during the group’s annual member meeting, part of the yearly NRA convention taking place this weekend in Houston.

Across the street from the convention, more than 60 protesters gathered.
