Because they aren’t scary enough already with their rhetoric, a National Rifle Association host would prefer it if North Korea bombed California instead of Guam. The NRA, which was at one time about using guns responsibly, has turned into a violent and partisan organization.
With Donald Trump amping up nuclear bomb threats, North Korea is reciprocating and Guam is preparing for a possible “imminent” missile strike.
Grant Stinchfield, host of the National Rifle Association’s news outlet NRATV, tweeted “Let’s send a note to North Korea that Sacramento changed its name to Guam!”
Stinchfield, an obvious tough guy, deleted the tweet.
Rep. Kathleen Rice (D) tweeted, “I’m just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can’t ignore that.”

Ironically, Stichfield responded to Rice to say that it’s the people on the left who are violent, just after deleting his violent message.
“Did you know we are threat to our nation? Silly me… I always thought ISIS, N. Korea and the violent left posed the danger! #removerice,” he wrote.

It wasn’t even two months ago that Stinchfield called out leftists who he claimed use “inflammatory rhetoric” that could inspire “unstable” individuals to commit acts of violence, according to Raw Story.
Stinchfield apologized for his tweet today and told the Daily News, “It was meant as a joke and I regret it.”
Meanwhile, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch just blamed Philando Castile’s death, the 32-year-old black man killed by a Minnesota police officer last year, on the victim. Castile had a small baggy of weed in his possession and a legal firearm.
He was also in possession of a controlled substance and a firearm simultaneously, which is illegal. Stop lying.

Twitter users responded.
I see your point. It’s right and correct that he was shot to death in his car in front of his girlfriend and her very young child.

So any American who has a controlled substance in their possession & a gun can be killed by the police with impunity. Is that your position?

So if a police officer shot a white middle-aged man with an open can of beer (illegal) in similar circumstances it would be ok? Got it
