While gun violence victims and their families gathered on Capitol Hill, pleading for solutions for to end the insanity of gun shootings, the National Rifle Association trolled them.
While Sandy and Lonnie Phillips (pictured below) spoke with reporters about the murder of their daughter inside the Aurora movie theater, the NRA took to its social media accounts.
Andy Parker, the father of Alison Parker, the reporter shot and killed along with her photographer Adam Ward on live television in Roanoke, Virginia pledged to do “whatever it takes” to prevent another tragedy.
At the ‘Whatever It Takes’ rally, survivors spoke and the NRA went into full attack on social media trying to hijack the hashtags #WhateverItTakes and #GunSense.
Of course, the NRA wants more guns.
The gun lobbyists couldn’t stop themselves.
The NRA promoted a story on Breitbart.
This one is the worst.
Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, weighed in.
And yet, the people who shared their stories and ideas are not ‘gun grabbers’. There was no talk of gun confiscation as the NRA suggested.
They gathered for a rally in the nation’s capitol with a purpose.
They are the “other” gun lobby, and they’ve come to look politicians in the eye, to make them think twice before cashing another check from the NRA, CNN reports.
They call themselves the group no one wants to join because they are comprised of those who have a family member whose live was taken by someone with a gun.
This is why the NRA is afraid.
“We must do whatever it takes to you know, to shame these guys,” MR. Parker said. “People like Goodlatte, like Sen. Stanley, state Sen. Stanley in Virginia, state Sen. John Warner … these are cowards, they’re gutless cowards and I’m going to put them on notice.”
Sep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who has an A rating by the NRA, has a pro-gun record and is the representative from the district where Alison and Adam Ward, the cameraman who was fatally shot alongside her, worked, Politico reports.
“Starting tomorrow I will meet with anyone, any place, any time,” Parker said. “So Rep. Goodlatte I am waiting for your call. But sir I’d like to tell you in advance if you won’t support background checks we’ll find someone else who will.”
