At its convention, NRA warns of a ‘culture war’

Warns members of a long fight

HOUSTON — The National Rifle Association kicked off its annual convention Friday with a warning that its members are engaged in a ‘‘culture war’’ that stretches beyond gun rights, further ramping up emotions surrounding the gun control debate.

James Porter, the NRA’s first vice president, who will assume the organization’s presidency Monday, issued a full-throated challenge to President Obama in the wake of a major victory regarding gun control and called on members to dig in for a long fight that will stretch into the 2014 elections.
