Death Threats Against NRA on Twitter

There is a certain irony in the fact that many liberals, purporting to be devastated by the Sandy Hook murders, are responding by calling for the murder of the National Rifle Association’s 4.3 million members. Well, to be fair, some of them just want to kill the organization’s officers. Twitchy has the story:

Here are just a couple of the Democrats’ tweets:

One of the liberals who wondered, “Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?” is a member of the Texas State Democratic Executive committee.

These calls for murder are, as I said, ironic, but they will not be surprising to anyone who is familiar with the liberal mind.
