The hate flowed freely after the Florida shooting, as it typically does anytime something like this happens. On Wednesday, Twitchy reported that The Outline CEO and editor Joshua Topolsky issued a tweet calling for the destruction of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
“The NRA must be destroyed,” he said in a tweet that has since been deleted.
“Call us crazy, but if you’re gonna rail against the NRA because of violence, maybe don’t sound so … violent,” Twitchy said.

Yes, it does.
Another person asked:
“We’re guessing Topolsky doesn’t want to kill the NRA with kindness,” Twitchy said.
Topolsky wasn’t the only one who used violent rhetoric against the NRA.
RETWEET if you agree that the #NRA MUST be destroyed with NO MERCY immediately.

More senseless deaths of kids, more “thoughts and prayers,” more NRA blood money, more “laws wouldn’t have prevented this” arguments from the right, more “we needs more guns in schools” arguments from the right, more inaction.
The gun lobby in this country must be destroyed. https://t.co/9Vs6v9aMo1

The NRA must be taken down. Bankrupted. Destroyed.

The NRA is a despicable organisation that has made a religion out of gun ownership! These bastards need to be destroyed along with their GOP enablers in order for anything to happen!

This Twitter user openly called for shooting NRA members and Republicans:
Shoot NRA executives instead.

This, by the way, is the modern anti-gun left.
And it’s nothing new, as I reported back in 2014. Back then, there was an unhinged liberal who openly said he was perfectly fine with the extermination of five million NRA members. The tweet is no longer available, but it certainly seems to be representative of the radical gun-grabbing left, which is always eager to blame anyone and everyone except the perpetrator.
Media Analyst Mark Dice said the problem isn’t the presence of guns — it’s the lack of mental health resources:
