New details emerging in the @washingtonpost about how the @NRA‘s response to one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history divided its leadership, began its current implosion, and spurred new groups - like @momsdemand - to go toe to toe with them. 

After Wayne LaPierre’s infamous speech post-Sandy Hook tragedy during which he doubled down on the @NRA’s deadly agenda, he and his wife flew on a private jet paid for by the “nonprofit” to the Bahamas at a cost of nearly $70,000.

The @NRA has said that LaPierre, as the public face of the organization, must travel by private plane for security reasons. 😂😂😂
