NRA Spokesperson: Ban ‘Pools, Feet And Fists’ Before Banning Automatic Weapons


Dana Loesch, a spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, an entity that recently has been promoting violence via videos, responded to a statement from the American College of Physicians in which they called for a ban on automatic and semiautomatic weapons following the Las Vegas massacre. But to Dana (I get to call her Dana, k?) we can’t take measures to prevent more slaughters if we don’t ban “pools, cars, cigarettes, alcohol, hands feet & fists” first.

We wondered what the NRA would have to say about the massacre in which a gunman took 59 lives and injured at least 527 others. The gun promoting organization has been quiet, something they do after each mass shooting. Dana, though, hasn’t been so quiet in her Twitter timeline.

“If it’s a “health issue,” cars, then hand, feet, and fists will be banned first (also pools),” she added in another tweet.

Dana once called me ‘old’ on Twitter (LOL). She’s right, though, but I’m old enough to remember when we didn’t have to live through a massive amount of deadly shootings.

Here’s the statement Dana was responding to:

The gunman legally owned 23 firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Nevada, the state where the deadliest mass shooting in history just took place, does not license gun owners, require guns to be registered, limit the number of guns a person can purchase in one sale, or impose a waiting period on gun purchases.The legal device the gunman used helped him fire off 400 rounds per minute.

But to Dana, eliminating that from our gun-saturated society would be trying to limit her freedoms as she sells her books and appears in violent videos to promote her obscured version of the Second Amendment.

I am a gun owner, but one that believes in common sense.
