BREAKING: New @NRA President Carolyn Meadows says Rep. Lucy McBath was elected because she's Black. "...it's wrong to say the reason she won was because of her anti-gun stance. ...it had to do with being a minority female."  https://www.mdjonline.com/news/new-nra-president-cobb-native-aiming-for-higher-membership-reclaiming/article_6732082c-6dc5-11e9-8018-0fe0132c64d9.html#utm_source=mdjonline.com&utm_campaign=%2Fnewsletters%2Fheadlines%2F%3F-dc%3D1557138614&utm_medium=email&utm_content=headline 

Meadows is also the leader of an organization that blocked the construction of a monument to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Stone Mountain, Georgia (there are already carvings there of Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis).

Why would ANY lawmaker associate with the @NRA given their blatant and strategic use of bigotry, racism, misogyny and homophobia to advance an agenda that only serves to line their pockets? Any and all who do will be held accountable in 2019 elections and beyond - count on it.
