Emma Gonzalez, one of the loudest gun control voices to come out of Stoneman Douglas, said the following to NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch:
Dana Loesch, I want you to know that we will support your two children in the way that you will not. The shooter at our school used weapons on us that he obtained legally. Do you believe it should be harder to obtain semi-automatic weapons and the modifications for these semi-automatic weapons to make them fully automatic, like bump stocks?
NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch: “This individual was nuts. … None of us support people who are crazy, who are dangerous to themselves, who are a danger to others, getting their hands on a firearm.” https://t.co/V50uSV8IiG #StudentsStandUp https://t.co/P5SiokWN3S

Loesch came back with a hard-hitting response about the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and its lack of data.
It was obvious from Gonzalez’s facial expressions that she had no idea about this information.
But, because Dana used logic, people are crying fowl.
I love to see the fragile adults defending their second amendment with guns being intimidated by teens with only their first amendment.

Come on. Dana didn’t brandish a weapon. She didn’t pull out her gun and point it to Emma’s head. She pointed out REAL facts.
NRA sent the wrong person to defend their cause.

Is it because she makes sense or because she’s a woman?
why are people upset about making sure the background system works? She talks about getting the right information in the system and people boo Dana Loesch?

Because then gun control advocates would have to admit that their current gun control laws are failing them.
NRA = Shameless. #NeverAgain

Because they want to enjoy their Constitutionally-protected right? Get a grip.
“I was a young activist like you and look where I am now!” I don’t think Emma Gonzales and these smart, grounded teens aspire to be someone like Ms. Loesch. What ego.

No matter what Dana would have done, you wouldn’t have been happy. She was relating to the girl.
Interesting. NRA says they represent 5 million Americans. 1. But yet they control congress and the President through money!!!. 2. The view if the hundreds of million of Americans don’t count!!!

You clearly don’t understand how political donations work.
The crowd was ridiculous at times. No one listens to each other anymore. There’s your national problem.
