Image: NRA's LaPierre: Trump Wrong, Shouldn't Have Firearms in Bars National Rifle Association executive Wayne LaPierre on Sunday disputed Donald Trump's assertion that people in bars should be allowed to carry guns – and would have been able to fight back against ISIS-inspired mass slayer Omar Mateen. 

In an interview Sunday on CBS News' "Face the Nation," the executive vice president and chief executive officer of the gun rights advocacy group warned "We need to face what's coming" from ISIS terrorists.

"They're not going to attack hard targets," he said. "They're going for vulnerabilities. they're going to go for shopping malls, they're going to go for churches. The fact is, we need vigilance, we need preparedness, we need a full court press on personal protection."

When pressed about Trump's advocacy of bar patrons being allowed to carry weapons, LaPierre disagreed.

"I don't think we should have firearms where people are drinking," he said. "But I'll tell you this, everybody needs … to start having a security plan. We need to be able to protect ourselves because they're coming."
