In the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, many people have once again begun discussing the need for stricter gun control laws. The debate is one that has happened before in the U.S. and shows little sign of stopping anytime soon. However, recently an NRA activist has taken to Twitter to voice the fact that she has allegedly received death threats from gun control advocates. In a lengthy series of Twitter posts, Dana Loesch said that she had spent her weekend preparing to move due to death threats she had received.
Loesch’s posts also attacked the modern feminist, which she accused of being unwilling to defend conservative women. “If ‘inequality’ was truly a concern for modern feminists, they’d defend, not shame, women for making choices antithetical 2 progressivism,” she wrote on Twitter.
Loesch’s comments drew a wide-range of responses including a supportive message from Chelsea Clinton who called the threats against Loesch “unacceptable.”
Many of the other responses to Loesch’s tweets condemned the threats against her, but also spoke out in favor of stronger gun control laws.
However, as is often the case when political spokespeople make comments, the thread later became mired in discussions of other issues such as abortion.
