NRA Posts Picture Of Lawmakers With Bullets After They Propose Ammo-Limiting Law

January 5, 2016 3:01 pm

The National Rifle Association’s official journal posted a picture of Democratic New York state lawmakers superimposed next to menacing bullets after the NRA heard about the lawmakers’ plan to limit ammunition purchases.

Here’s the tweet, and the accompanying letter from the editor, from the NRA journal, America’s 1st Freedom, featuring state Sen. Roxanne Persaud and Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon.

The letter, written by journal editor Mark Chestnut, said the two lawmakers “simply don’t care about” gun owners and the amount of ammunition they reasonably need.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called it “obnoxious” and “suggestive.”
