After School Shooting, Anti-Gun Advocates Want NRA President, Members to Be Shot
Following the horrific act of violence that occurred in Newtown, Conn. on Friday, some anti-gun advocates are calling for NRA president David Keene and all other members of the NRA to be shot. To be clear, these people are calling for violence to solve what they think is the cause of many acts of violence — guns.
All NRA members should be shot!!!!I thank you, that’s one of my own !!

Some have since deleted their tweets, but we still have the screen shots.
As Twitchy points out, “@BayAreaHouston is not just any random Twitter user. He is John Cobarruvias, a Democratic Party precinct chair in Houston, according to Houston blog Big Jolly Politics. (Update: He is also member of the State Democratic Executive committee.)”
The obvious point here is, violence can never be solved with more violence.
On Friday, shooter Adam Lanza shot and killed his mother before driving to Sandy Hook Elementary and killing 20 children and six adults before taking his own life.
The NRA has been quiet in the aftermath of Friday’s elementary school shooting, shutting down their Facebook page and not registering any posts on Twitter since Friday morning, CBS Washington reports.
The gun rights group has still received criticism for its silence following the shooting. However, if the NRA spoke out in favor of guns so close to the shooting, they would surely be ridiculed by those same critics for “politicizing” a tragedy. So while it seems like a lose-lose situation for them, the NRA is sticking with respectful silence for now.
