NRA Puts Pelosi Next To “Target Practice” Headline

Newsweek reports:

The National Rifle Association is facing scrutiny over publishing a magazine spread that depicts House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Rep. Gabby Giffords, a victim of gun violence, next to a large headline that reads “Target Practice.”

Lawmakers and advocates decried the American Rifleman layout as offensive on Saturday afternoon after Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery shared pictures of the magazine on Twitter. From there, it went viral and was circulated to other lawmakers and Pelosi’s daughter.

Rep. Eric Swalwell of California also condemned the magazine spread and characterized it as a “call for violence.” He urged his followers to boycott the NRA, which publishes American Rifleman.
