What @Dloesch, @Benhowe and @NRATV are trying to do by breathlessly attacking @alyssa_milano because 1 event security guard she did not hire and we did not ask to be armed may have made a personal choice to carry a weapon is to distract you from the following things that matter:
1. The @NRA just appointed a man who sold arms to Iran, funded a dictator and a revolutionary group in Central America and destroyed evidence of the same, and who has a history of attacking LGBTQ and other comminities of Americans as their new president.
2. There is an ongoing and expanding investigation into the @NRA's Russian funding. In fact, during their convention, they hosted TulAmmo, a company with ties to the Kremlin and a recently-sanctioned Russian oligarch.
3. Nobody in #NoRA has called for "taking everyone's guns." In fact, we have specifically said that is not our aim, over and over, in press interviews, videos, and more. But the @NRA and @NRATV are incapable of reporting the truth - they want to line the pockets of gun companies
4. That the @NRA continued its vile and racists attacks on black Americans during its convention, projecting a large image of @deray and calling our friends at #BlackLivesMatter "ungrateful."
5. That @CBP, which tolerates roving bands of armed vigilantes on the border but which will now separate children from parents at the border, had a booth in their convention - using your tax dollars to support their organization alongside the Russian-funded company.
6. That while they incorrectly insist "mental health" is the problem, but support candidates and host a president who bragged at their convention about "decimating Obamacare," which provides coverage for mental health to millions of Americans.
That a member of their board worked and helped spread the ideas of a white supremacist who argued that people of color were genetically inferior to white people.
That another member of their board threatened to kill the President of the United States and other high-ranking government officials and recently suggested all members of one political party should be shot.
There is no end to the proof that the @NRA values money over lives. But they don't want you to see that. So they attack us, they attack @alyssa_milano, #BLM, immigrants, the #ParklandStudents. They lie to spread fear and hate, because fear and hate sell guns. #NoRA

Hey .@SenateMajLdr McConnell: we know it can be hard to think of what the federal government can do to stop school shootings when you’ve taken $1.6 million in .@NRA money, so we made a simple thread. #NoRA
We know you like to say mental health is the problem. (It’s not the whole problem, but ok). Maybe stop gutting Medicaid and community health centers. Mental healthcare for the poor is a critical tool to stop many kinds of violence. #NoRA
Mandate trigger locks and safe storage. Properly stored and secured guns could have prevented any number of shootings, including Sandy Hook. #NoRA

The Gilboa Snake Double Barrel Assault Rifle is coming to a gun shop near you.

This Israeli gun is designed specifically to avoid laws against machine guns in the US, and to hold TWO 30-round magazines. Thread. #NoRA
US Law defines a machine gun as "...any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger."

Pretty clear, right? Well this gun has TWO triggers. #NoRA
...So technically, it fires two rounds almost simultaneously, by a single function of each trigger. Much like bump stocks, it relies on a deadly technicality to legally exist.
