The NRA Convention kicked off with a speech from Vice President Wayne LaPierre, who linked gun control with the Boston Marathon bombings.

LaPierre insisted the bombings proved that residents of Boston were in need of guns.

He said during the door-to-door search, residents were imprisoned behind locked doors at their home while a terrorist with bombs and guns roamed the streets.

LaPierre also rallied gun rights advocates and supporters for a renewed fight against a gun control bill.
