Earlier today, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom posted a video warning the National Rifle Association that gun control advocates are coming after our guns. He decided to use the video to promote his gun control agenda and rally his troops.
Apparently, Michael Moore decided he needed to get in on the action by blaming the NRA and gun manufacturers for the number of gun-related deaths since the Sandy Hook Massacre.
Since the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary 5 years ago today, over 150,000 Americans have been killed with guns. WE let this continue. WE refused to demolish the NRA & destroy the gun manufacturers. We refused to examine why only Americans have this kind of continuous violence.

Oh, Mr. Moore. You are so, so, soooo uneducated. While anti-gunners like yourself seem to believe that the NRA is only made up of “powerful gun manufacturers,” you all forget one point that’s very hard to miss: the NRA has 5 MILLION members. And guess what? The majority of us are average folks who want to make sure our Second Amendment rights are protected. We don’t work for gun manufacturers. Hell, most NRA members don’t even work in the gun industry. They’re people who want to hunt and provide for their family or carry a firearm for self-defense. At least if you’re going to be outraged about something, can you puh-leaseeee get your facts straight?! It’s really not THAT hard to do.
Twitter quickly lit a fire under Moore’s ass (and for good reason).
What portion of those numbers are suicide or accidental deaths?

That’s the question of the hour.
It’s disgusting there has to be more regulation. As Americans our 2nd Amendment allows guns so we as Americans are never at the mercy of the government. I believe in our 2nd Amendment after watching the world without the ability to protect themselves from their governments. #2

Michele is right. The whole point of the Second Amendment is for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. I know gun control advocates say we’re paranoid when we worry about our guns being taken away from us, but guess what? Every dictator started out by taking away his peoples’ guns. You know why? Because they couldn’t rebel without a weapon in their hand. Americans are smart enough to know that this is a very real threat.
Just me here but a gun alone kills nothing. The glamorization of guns yes is what's overlooked…. People have been stabbed just as much but no knife control or horror movie ban. America is free so… You're gonna have gun owners or Marijuana users or any other vice people like.

This guy gets it. Then there were others who decided to try and challenge his thought process.
Stop. Banning the manufacturing of assault weapons and banning the manufacturing of bump stocks and several other types of guns that are not for self defense & are not for hunting & universal background checks & not allowing people to cross state lines with their illegal gun, etc

There are SO many things to be said about this tweet.
