NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch has come under intense fire for her support of guns rights after the CNN town hall with the Parkland school shooting survivors, but she says she refuses to be “shamed” for wanting to defend her family, reports The Washington Times.
Connecticut Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy said this week that the NRA has “in essence become a terrorist organization” and said the group is a “cry from the NRA in 1999 that said teachers should carry guns in school.”
After Loesch heard that ridiculous comment about the NRA she said she can’t take Malloy or others that have launched similar attacks against the National Rifle Association seriously.
“I want to be able to defend my family and I am not going to be shamed for it,” NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch said on “Fox & Friends.” “I am not going to be shamed for it by the Connecticut governor or anyone else that wants to smear me or anyone as terrorists because we disagree with him and we have a different way of protecting our families.”
Loesch said she wants gun owners who are parents to upload videos on social media, explaining “why they carry and why they are not terrorists.”
“I am tired of people questioning mothers and fathers and saying they love their firearms more than they love their children,” she said.
The NRA has come out against a bill that passed the Florida Legislature this week that puts restrictions on firearm purchases, including by raising the age to purchase a gun to 21 and creating a three-day waiting period.
After the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, gun control and anti-gun advocates have been demonizing anyone who owns a gun and are telling businesses to boycott any deals for NRA members. Something is seriously wrong with liberals when they start calling the organization that is there to protect citizens against gun violence a “terrorist” group.
