Second Nexus reports:
Dana Loesch, the national spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, blamed the Wednesday night mass shooting in California on the state’s strict gun control laws.
Followers on Twitter blasted Loesch for her callous spin just hours after a gunman opened fire in a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, killing 13 people including armed sheriff’s deputy Ron Helus.
Loesch, having offered no evidence to support her claims that gun control causes mass shootings, was confronted with the inconvenient truth that states with stricter firearm rules have fewer gun-related deaths.
What happened was horrific. Evil is real. So are CA gun laws:
– Universal BG checks
– May issue
– 10 round mag limit
– Purchase limitations
– 10 day waiting period
– No reciprocity with other states
– “Assault weapons” ban & registration
– Ammo thru FFL
– Registration if moved https://t.co/lGG6HxxUrc

You are right dana, we should just hope and pray we are not gunned down in a bar, concert, elementary school, middle school, high school, college, church, mall, your workplace and of course if you are you, the nra and the gop has a full bucket of thoughts and prayers to send out.

False equivalency ma’am. Glad 35+ of your money hungry reps are gone. Maybe we can listen to someone who has compassion for their fellow Americans rather than a divisive spokeswoman.

Japan had 6 gun murders in 2014 to our 33,500+. But that’s only because, y’know, they felt like doing something about it. #GunControlNow
