NRA Board Member Whines: People Are ‘Playing On The Sympathy Factor Of Kids Getting Killed’ In Parkland
National Rifle Association board member Charles Cotton whined on Feb. 26 how gun-safety advocates have mobilized after the Parkland school massacre that left 17 students and teachers dead.
Cotton called on his fellow gun advocates to take action in a post on TexasCHLForum.com:
I’m so sick of buzz phrases. No one is “giving up” anything, but the reality is we could well see bump-stocks “taken away” because the votes are probably there.
Wake up people and see what’s happening!!!! Bloomberg and Hollywood are pouring money into this effort and the media is helping to the fullest extent.
We’ve never had this level of opposition before, not ever. It’s a campaign of lies and distortion, but it’s very well funded and they are playing on the sympathy factor of kids getting killed.
If you really want to make a difference, then start recruiting NRA members every single day. The NRA better be 15 million strong soon, or this is only going to get worse.
In 2015, Cotton bravely blamed pastor and and state legislator Clementa C. Pinckney of the Charleston church that was victimized by a mass shooting, noted The Washington Post:
And he voted against concealed-carry. Eight of his church members who might be alive if he had expressly allowed members to carry handguns in church are dead. Innocent people died because of his position on a political issue.
Cotton was so courageous that he deleted the statement, but not before a screenshot was taken.
