Vice President Mike Pence just had the nerve to say being at the @NRA’s annual meeting is part of his pro-life agenda. What about the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have been killed or injured by gun violence? #NRAAM2019 #NRAAM
Donald Trump talking about socialism and the economy. Hasn’t mentioned that his administration banned bump stocks, or that the @NRA wasn’t able to pass its priority legislation through Congress: Concealed carry reciprocity and deregulating silencers. #NRAAM2019 #nraam
Donald Trump announces he’s sending a request to the US Senate to stop the treaty ratification process for the UN Arms Trade Treaty during his speech at @NRA annual meeting. It's a treaty to stop human rights abusers from obtaining firearms. #NRAAM2019 #NRAAM
The @nra seems to think the story about an armed citizen who shot at the gunman in Sutherland Springs, but didn’t kill him or stop him from shooting and killing 26 people and wounding 20 others is a win. #nraam #NRAAM2019
Donald Trump: "Gun owners make our communities stronger and make our nation safer." Really? Then why does America have the highest rates of gun violence of any high income country? Opioid abuse is a crisis, but gun violence is a source of pride? #NRAAM #NRAAM2019
Donald Trump walks off to "You Can't Always Get What You Want." Given that the @NRA hasn't passed priority legislation since 2016, gun manufacturers have a $100M plus profit deficit, and the gun lobby lost in the midterm elections, it's a pretty appropriate song. #NRAAM #NRAAM19
