'WTF Is Wrong With You?': NRA Trashed For Tasteless Meme After Mass Shooting
Seven individuals were killed on Sunday in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in the year's 194th mass shooting, as per the charitable gathering Gun Violence Archive.
The influx of brutality has prompted new calls for weapon control measures.
Yet, on Sunday ― Mother's Day ― the National Rifle Association posted an image proposing that moms arm their young little girls.
"Mother DIDN'T RAISE A VICTIM" read the content over a picture of a lady and a young lady with guns.
The NRA's message and its boring planning went under weighty fire on Twitter:

Glad Mother's Day to the entirety of the lamenting moms.On top of millions of different positions mothers have, far to many need to deal with families obliterated by weapon savagery. Today, my better half began Mothers Day at the graveyard, visiting our girl who was killed in the Parkland shooting. https://t.co/2275IRARkr—Fred Guttenberg (@fred_guttenberg) May 10, 2021
This is ridiculously gross. To readily and smilingly acquaint your kid with the idea of brutal crime by cutening up a machine that is intended to deliver however much harm as could reasonably be expected to the human body. This is misuse. https://t.co/jm2AJtMrU9—Andy Richter (@AndyRichter) May 10, 2021

Would congress be able to announce the NRA as a psychological militant association and get them undermined?— David Weissman (@davidmweissman) May 9, 2021
Thus, the NRA is saying that if something happens to ladies, it's their own flaw for not being armed.Fuck this crook, psychological militant association. #FuckTheNRA https://t.co/EnRlDyNgue—Doctor Dan (@bravetinsoldier) May 10, 2021
Is it my creative mind, or would we say we are two or three mass shootings consistently now in the US? On the off chance that the NRA was situated in another country, we'd be at battle with it.— Steve Silberman (@stevesilberman) May 9, 2021
The NRA felt that this was something proper to tweet out on Mother's Day.7 individuals killed at a birthday celebration in Colorado Springs. https://t.co/dOBUJgV1Nd—🇺🇸🇺🇸Biden Loving PATRIOT 🇺🇸🇺🇸 (@serena_patriot) May 9, 2021
Six individuals were fired and killed by a shooter at a birthday celebration in Colorado Springs today - on Mother's Day. In any event 94 additional individuals in America will be shot and killed - and more than 230 will be injured by gunfire - before the day is finished. https://t.co/vo4UGw35eB—Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) May 9, 2021
