Appears the rhetoric is stepping up a notch. So, what exactly does that mean to the 1 million plus (active) members of the NRA.

www.washingtonpost.com... erm=.34a045980b7a





The group’s threat to the NRA surprised drivers heading north on I-65 near the Fern Valley Road exit earlier this week. David Watkins, a spokesman for Outfront Media, which owns the billboard, told the Louisville Courier-News on Tuesday that the vandalism has been “immediately removed.”

But photos of the graffiti had already begun circulating on social media, and the NRA posted it to its Facebook page Monday.

“To all American gun owners, this is a wakeup call. They’re coming after us. Like and share to spread the word,” NRA officials wrote in the post.


“I am part of the NRA along with millions of other Americans. Are you threating [sic] to kill me?” one person asked in a tweet.

“The message is simple, ‘Kill the influence that the NRA has on our politicians,’ ” tweeted Ed Krassenstein.

But by speaking out about the billboard, the NRA can perhaps remind Americans of its tried-and-true slogan: “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.” After all, most Americans continue to say that mass shootings are the result of problems identifying and addressing mental health issues rather than inadequate gun laws, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.


A Facebook page for Resist 45 appears to have been deleted.

people should say what they really mean

" kill "

is pretty unambiguous [ at least in my opinion ]

this line of " reasoning " sums it up :


“The message is simple, ‘Kill the influence that the NRA has on our politicians,’ ” tweeted Ed Krassenstein.


my response :

if you say :

" kill the dog "

you will have a dead dog

if you REALLY wanted the dog muzzled . you should hsave said :

" muzzle the dog "

YMMV

Without the terms "social media" and "viral" would we even know about this?

Ask yourself how many newspapers NATIONWIDE would even cover this "story"...

There are over 6 million of us in the NRA, if we were the killers the media and the left always claim we are how would anybody still be living? The left seems to be the real violent people, almost every mass shooting has been by registered Democrats. When leftists don’t get their way they tend to get violent, history bears this out Hitler,Stalin,Castroand the poster boy of the left, Che Guevara’s a reply to: infolurker

spoons are even more dangerous in the wrong hands

true annecdote - while staying at a hostel i was asked to assist a casualty who had stabbed themself in the eye with a spoon [ uninentionalllly ]

they were students playing some " drinking game " that involved eating things as a " forfeit "

laceration of the upper eyelid and scratched cornea resulted
