The New York Daily News reports:
An NRA television host has apologized for suggesting that one of America’s enemies abroad could switch their sights from the Western Pacific to liberals in the U.S. “Let’s send a note to North Korea that Sacramento changed its name to Guam!” NRA TV personality Grant Stinchfield posted on Twitter Friday morning.
It was not immediately clear why Stinchfield suggested Northern California as a possible substitute for the destruction that Pyongyang has threatened against America’s territory east of the Philippines.
Sacramento is the state capital of California, whose strict gun laws have repeatedly earned the ire of the National Rifle Association. Stinchfield told the Daily News Friday afternoon that he is sorry for the remark. “It was meant as a joke and I regret it,” he said by phone.
So here’s Stinchfield’s clip angrily denouncing claims that the NRA incites violence.
