Alyssa Milano Attacks The NRA, Immediately Gets Called Out On Twitter

The NRA had their annual convention over the weekend, with President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence speaking at the annual pro-gun conference.

The conference attracted over 80,000 gun rights supporters, while a “NoRA” counter-protest attracted about 500 people. “NoRA” is a coalition backed by celebrities like Jimmy Kimmel, Amy Schumer, and Alyssa Milano, who was in attendance at the rally (with numerous armed bodyguards). “And I don’t think there’s a person in this country who doesn’t think we don’t have a gun problem. We’ve become so partisan that we don’t know how to even meet halfway to fix that problem” Milano told The Dallas Observer regarding her attendance.

Ironically, it’s her own rhetoric that contributes to this sort of hyper-partisan stalemate she’s complaining about. “The NRA doesn’t care about the American people, it’s members or our troops. They care about profit,” she tweeted out yesterday morning about the non-profit corporation.

She then cited an article on a breakdown of how the NRA makes their revenues, even though none of the income sources are particularly “damning” – or controversial in any way.

Regardless, she still doesn’t have her facts straight.

According to the Daily Wire:

The NRA Foundation has given $61 million to a variety of local groups since 2010; 500 schools received more than $7.3 million from 2010 through 2016; 4-H groups have received $12.2 million since 2010, and Boy Scout troops and councils received $4 million.

As far as not caring about veterans, try again: the NRA has worked with Congress to support the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, and more recently, the Mental Health and Safe Communities Act.

A few veterans responded to Milano on Twitter in disagreement:

And just an added bonus: crime in the immediate area (3-mile radius) surrounding the convention fell 30% while the NRA was in town. It’s a mystery only to Milano and her ilk as to what could have scared them off.
