NRA slammed for magazine article calling Nancy Pelosi and Gabby Giffords ‘Target practice’

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is well-known for their belief that every American be allowed to purchase and own any weapon they desire, but a new stunt they pulled with a magazine article proves why they’re on the way to bankruptcy and irrelevancy.

Newsweek reports:

The National Rifle Association is facing scrutiny over publishing a magazine spread that depicts House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and former Rep. Gabby Giffords, a victim of gun violence, next to a large headline that reads ‘Target Practice.’

“Lawmakers and advocates decried the American Rifleman layout as offensive on Saturday afternoon after Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery shared pictures of the magazine on Twitter. From there, it went viral and was circulated to other lawmakers and Pelosi’s daughter.”

Here’s a screenshot of the article:

Social media immediately exploded with disgust for what many felt the NRA was advocating with their irresponsible their headline and photo:

The NRA owes Speaker Pelosi, Gabby Giffords, and every American citizen an apology. But none of us will hold our breath waiting for one.
