Alyssa Milano Says NRA ‘Doesn’t Care About Members or Troops,’ Immediately Gets Demolished on Twitter

She really stepped in it this time.

Actress and outspoken political activist Alyssa Milano has been on tear recently against the National Rifle Association, having tweeted out a rather obscene post against the organization, completely ignoring the irony of her having armed bodyguards by her side.

Well, apparently she hasn’t filled her quota for hashtag activism against the NRA yet, so she decided to post yet another ridiculous tweet slamming the organization.

However, things didn’t quite go her way this time around, as folks from all around the Internet gathered to demolish her on social media.

To try to buttress her argument, Milano then quoted an article for Business Insider from 2013 written by Walter Hickey, who is currently the chief culture writer for Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight:

This is complete poppycock.

The NRA Foundation has given $61 million to a variety of local groups since 2010; 500 schools received more than $7.3 million from 2010 through 2016; 4-H groups have received $12.2 million since 2010, and Boy Scout troops and councils received $4 million.

As far as not caring about veterans, try again: the NRA has worked with Congress to support the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, and more recently, the Mental Health and Safe Communities Act.

And here’s a sample of the pummeling Milano received from those her comments angered:

Ouch.

The NRA is a great organization that has fought hard to preserve our Second Amendment rights from those who would strip away our means of protecting our life, liberty, and property.

The reason this amendment exists is because our Founders recognized that mankind is a fallen creation and is susceptible to great acts of evil. Each person must take full responsibility for their own safety in order to ensure these wicked individuals are restrained from fulfilling their deplorable desires.

What Milano doesn’t seem to understand is that the harder she fights against the NRA, the more folks join its ranks. This is a lesson Parkland survivor and anti-gun nut David Hogg has learned the hard way.

The attendance for the NRA convention this past weekend hit an all new high, likely driven by the sentiments of the March for Our Lives movement Hogg helped launch.

Milano ought to do her own legitimate research into the issue of gun violence and gun control and see what the facts really say rather than parroting liberal talking points in a lame attempt to remain relevant.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
