The NRA actually tweeted this:
In 2018, words still have meaning. They, however, often lack any basis in or relationship to reality.
This is the Republican base. And any Republican who still associates with NRA batshitloonitarians–or any of the other sundry conservative batshitloonitarians–needs to be constantly shamed and shunned. And not just the public mouthpieces. All of them. We do not have to nice to these assholes; we really shouldn’t have ever been in the first place.
