Not given every year, it is only presented when a person has ‘stood up under pressure with grace, dignity, and principled discipline,’ Carolyn Meadows, the second vice president for the NRA, said to Motherboard.

The gun was not allowed to go unto the stage however and the FCC, CPAC and the NRA failed to respond to questions relating as to why that was the case.

Metal detectors were present before President Donald Trump’s speech earlier on Friday, but a Reuters reporter shared that no visible prohibitions were visible.

Speaking at the conference, Pai was quick to defend his reasoning for ending former President Barack Obama’s net neutrality provisions set in 2015. 

‘Some people urged me to go for sacrifice bunts and singles and try to nibble around the edges — make some minor changes,’ Pai said. ‘But I don’t play small ball.’ 

Pai was supposed to attend a consumer electronic event in Las Vegas, back in January, but had to cancel because of death threats.
