Shannon Watts: NRA Members Aren’t “Caring Americans”

posted on April 18, 2017

National Rifle Association members will likely be saddened—but probably not surprised—that an outspoken gun-ban zealot basically called each and every one of them uncaring on national television over the weekend.

“Make no mistake, there is a life or death battle for gun safety going on in this country,” Shannon Watts, head of Bloomberg’s demanding Moms, told MSNBC. “It is caring Americans versus the gun lobby, and the gun lobby has a 30-year head start.”

Of course, the “gun lobby” is Watts’ code words for the 5 million law-abiding NRA members throughout the country, from teachers to preachers, lawyers to brick layers, truck drivers to advertising executives and everything in between.

While NRA members have grown accustomed to Watts’ cavalier crudeness toward the law-abiding Americans who choose to be members of the Association to protect their rights, her most recent characterization of members as basically monsters who care nothing about criminal violence victims should destroy what little bit of credibility she has left.
