NRA and its chief spokeswomen are a ‘domestic security threat’ Login/Join

A U.S. House member called the National Rifle Association and one of its chief spokeswomen a threat to national security.

Rep. Kathleen Rice, New York Democrat, appeared to be responding to NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch noting that Philando Castile was in possession of marijuana when police shot the motorist dead. According to her next tweet five minutes later, that makes the NRA a “domestic security threat.”

“I’m just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can’t ignore that,” Ms. Rice said.

At the time of the tweet Ms. Loesch was appearing on Fox News Channel, and when host Mark Steyn told her of Ms. Rice accusation, a surprised Ms. Loesch called it disappointing that a House member would call defense of the Second Amendment a threat.

She later took to Twitter and posted: “Rephrase: An elected gov’t official just labeled me and millions of others ‘domestic security threats.’ Wow.”

Noting that Ms. Rice’s language mirrors justifications of police-state persecutions, Ms. Loesch asked the congresswoman’s Twitter feed directly “will ur secret police wear a certain uniform? I want to know who we should look for when we are all taken into custody.”

Ms. Rice’s 4th Congressional District covers the central and southern parts of Nassau County on New York’s Long Island.

Congratulations to the Democrats. I don't care for Ms. Loesch's style, but the leftists have found a way for me to support her.

Ms. Rice needs to shut her stupid cake hole.

It never fails to amaze me how cannibalistic Democraps are. Going after women and LBGTblahblah because they have different views. God bless America and Trump. I don't even bother with politics right now knowing he's in office. If I even start to worry, I imagine where we would be with Hillary.

I don't comment on these stories very often because they are addressed so skillfully by so many here but I must say that I am truly amazed by the depths of stupidity some of these people fall into.

Well, I guess labeling more people as deplorables will really help them next election.

I'd say if the NRA were really a threat folks wouldn't need to be told.

It will probably help among the clueless libs. Heck, it may even be added to her fundraising literature!

It hasn't so far.

The more these crack pots rattle on about gun threats, the fewer of them there are still in office after the next election.

Since the rhetoric has already been escalated, is it too much to say that Rep. Rice should be in the NRA's "crosshairs" come next election? Eek

Which is why I always view such comments from these nitwits as a net positive. Please, I want them to continue to share their true beliefs with all of us, as it will eventually land them on the endangered species list. Wink

Well... the whole point of the 2d Amendment is that government should always feel sort of potentially threatened by the people, isn't it?

To a dyed-in-the-wool Libtard, an armed and free populace and a President who favors America first have to be a nightmare.

It turns out that Rep. Rice is the successor to Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, who rose to prominence with the "that thingie that goes up" remark.

In her defense, she also has said that Pelosi needs to go.

"...sort of potentially threatened" my ass. The founders made it abundantly clear that the people having the right/responsibility/ability to overthrow a tyrannical government was key to insuring government understood its boundaries.

"When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." - Thomas Jefferson
Which side of that equation have we been the closest to over the past 40 years? The current paradigm needs to change, and I believe President Trump and his administration has pushed the needle in the right direction.

ms ricecakes makes the mistake we have seen before when lefties describe (and as they see it, correctly) the nra as a monolith of some nature, 'the gun lobby'. they don't really get that it is an association of somewhat like-minded people who have precisely one thing in common.

When i denigrate planned non-parenthood the defenders defend the organization. when someone puts the bad-mouth on the nra, i defend the constitution, the association and me. it's a different way of thinking about things then the gdc borg has.
i don't even have to like the nra knuckle-heads that won't ever return a phone call. that's a whole different story and for debate with my pals not my adversaries.
