After new NRA president Carolyn Meadows made the dubious claim that Rep. Lucy McBath (D-GA) won a House seat in a conservative district only because she is a “minority woman,” McBath responded with a series of tweets about her campaign’s focus on gun control.

McBath noted that she was pushed to run for Congress after her son was murdered and that it was central to her campaign, pushing back on Meadows’ argument that McBath didn’t win due to her push for gun control.
