Misfire: Democratic Rep Calls Dana Loesch a Threat to National Security

Misfire: Democratic Rep Calls Dana Loesch a Threat to National Security

Coleman Lamb, a spokesman for Rice, defended the New York Democrat's tweet, saying in a statement Friday that the NRA "no longer has anything to do with protecting Second Amendment Rights", according to The Washington Post.

Ms. Rice, a Democrat who represents New York's 4th Congressional District, first lashed out at the Mrs. Loesch for tweets about the 2016 shooting death of Philando Castile by Minnesota police.

The ominous remark "we can't ignore that" takes on added emphasis with Rice sitting on the Homeland Security Committee. But NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said the NRA didn't speak up on Castile's behalf because he was in possession of marijuana at the time of his death and, she said, that violates the law.

Wait.for real? I'm a paying member of the NRA and that makes me a domestic security threat? Wow.

Rice had been feuding with NRA spokeswoman and fisting denier Dana Loesch over the organization's silence on the murder of Castile, a licensed gun owner who was shot during a traffic stop when he told a police officer he had a licensed weapon.

"So if a white guy was shot dead during a routine stop w/a legal gun & a joint in his auto, #NRA would stay silent?", Rice asked in a tweet.

She also replied to Rice's tweet.

One user said people like Rice were a threat to freedom of speech.

"I am not sure what the protocol is after someone is deemed a domestic threat", Loesch said.

The NRA came under heavy criticism in the aftermath of the shooting because some saw the group as not living up to its obligation to defend legal gun owners.

The NRA finally came out of hiding on the killing after a year, saying this week that the group didn't defend Castile because he had marijuana - the most murdery and rare drug on the market - in his vehicle at the time, and that therefore he, I guess, deserved to be shot to death in front of his family in the auto. Other Twitter users said Rice was the threat, not Loesch, and that Rice was being "reckless".

Loesch, a conservative commentator and syndicated radio host, was promoted to a top national spokesperson position with the NRA earlier this year.
