One Democratic governor is certainly ruffling some feathers amongst members of the National Rifle Association (NRA). On Monday, Democratic Governor Dan Malloy from Connecticut publicly stated that the NRA has devolved into a terrorist organization, and the NRA was quick to share their very loud response, which was followed up with supportive examples. He shared the following statement with the press:
“They act quite frankly in some cases as a terrorist organization. You want to make safer guns? We will boycott your company. That’s who they are. That’s what they do. The NRA today is a far cry from the NRA that in 1999 said that teachers shouldn’t carry weapons in schools. Or in the 90s said we should have universal background checks. They have in essence become a terrorist organization.”
In response, the NRA recruited the help of their members and called upon those who had a variety of different backgrounds including rape survivors, immigrants, and a U.S. Navy SEAL who is a Navy Cross and Purple Heart recipient.
When it comes to the gun control debate, there is always a lot that is said and commenters shared their thoughts on the matter…
“What an extremely ignorant thing for a governor to say. He and the state of CT should be embarrassed.”
“Maybe the snowflakes need to look at NRA membership among the disgusting school and church shooters. I would bet NONE belong to the NRA.”
“I am originally from CT. I am a NRA member. I am embarrassed to say the least having that idiot as their Governor….Don’t vote for Dan Malloy!!!!!!!”
“Gov. Malloy is a little dictator or a Hollywood schill. The NRA is the vanguard of the America freedoms we are blessed with today.”
And others questioned the actions previously committed by democrats…
“Wait… Wasn’t it the Dems who released 5 actual terrorists from Guantanamo Bay? Just asking…”
And one commenter vented about democrats being terrorists themselves…
“I’ll tell you who a “TERRORIST ORGANIZATION” is! You want to know so that you’ll be sure NEVER to associate yourselves with it! It’s THE DEMOCRAT PARTY!!! THEY ARE THE TERRORIST ORGANZATION BIG TIME!!! IN FACT, THEY ARE COMMUNISTS! We are no longer a 2 party system. We are a ONE PARTY SYSTEM! A REPUBLICAN and a COMMUNIST PARTY. Unfortunately, the universities and the high schools are NOT teaching what COMMUNISM IS-WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, SOUNDS LIKE, WHAT IT’S POLICIES ARE. Instead, they are SELLING GASLIGHTING as what we are. They tell the students that WE’RE the FASCISTS-well, we’re NOT the fascists-THEY ARE-BUT, THEY ARE TEACHING THE WRONG DEFINITIONS TO THE STUDENTS. So black becomes white…THIS IS OPERATION MOCKINGBIRD ON STEROIDS! THEY NEVER COUNTED ON TRUMP BECOMING PRESIDENT. HE’S THE WRENCH IN THEIR PLANS. He’s set their globalist agenda plans back about 15 years-more if he gets elected a second term. They don’t WANT AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!! IT RUINS THEIR PLANS!!!”
The battle over gun control has only gotten worse since the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida and at this point, it doesn’t look like it will ease up anytime soon.
What message would you send to this Governor?
