The National Rifle Association today doubled down on its “clenched fist of truth campaign” with a video aimed at the Washington Post and media outlets that called its previous video “dark”.
The NRA’s Grant Stinchfield, a conservative talk show host, said the Washington Post does “more damage to our country with a keyboard than every NRA member combined has ever done with a firearm.”
On Last Friday, organizers of the Women’s March on Washington protested outside NRA headquarters, then marched to the Department of Justice in DC, claiming the NRA ad campaign endorses violence.
