This is not a joke.
A “coalition of celebrities” is ready to launch an attack on the National Rifle Association.
Pretty sure the NRA is not worried, and is probably looking forward to the boost in membership and support that usually follows mindless campaigns from the left.
We’re ready for you celebrities and activists… #supporttheNRA

Hollywood liberals including Alyssa Milano, Amy Schumer, Alec Baldwin, Ashley Judd, Julianne Moore, Debra Messing and Jimmy Kimmel, as well as activists like Parkland student David Hogg, announced Friday that they are “coming for” the NRA and any elected officials who receive contributions from the group, Time reported.

According to Time:
In an open letter to NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, which was first obtained by TIME, the more than 100 members of the newly formed NoRA Initiative — short for No Rifle Association — pledge to reduce the NRA’s influence in American politics through a series of voter registration drives, nationwide art campaigns, demonstrations and boycotts.
“Your time signing checks in our blood is up,” the letter says. “We’re coming for your money. We’re coming for your puppets. And we’re going to win.”
The NoRA initiative appears to be the brainchild of Milano’s, the actress who seems to have perfected the art of slactivism as she launched the #MeToo movement last year.
“I am the mother of two children,” Milano told Time. “To see what’s going on in this country as far as gun violence, and the lack of real fortitude to do anything about it, is keeping me up at night.”
She reportedly reached out to her liberal colleagues and friends after being inspired by Parkland students, albeit only the ones espousing the anti-NRA, gun-control narrative after the mass shooting at the Florida high school in February.
“To see these Parkland kids doing what they’re doing, to get up there, to be so brave, to be so open and really take the initiative to try to fix this is great,” Milano said, “but they need support.”
The group, which Milano says has raised more than $25,000 since February, has “surprises up our sleeves,” according to the actress.
What a freakin’ joke. I hope these same actors stop acting in movies that have any gun violence and any movie that has any violence towards women. Doubt that would happen. HYPOCRITES. This is a battle that they will LOSE.

Screeching liberals like Milano have repeatedly attacked the NRA, which has no authority at the government level, and despite being schooled over their ignorance, continue to virtue signal to attain some level of personal satisfaction.
Let’s say you take on the NRA and win. What then? I’m genuinely asking. What’s the goal? Which guns laws are the NRA keeping in place/keeping out that you celebs will push through?

Meanwhile, as Milano and her ilk continue to beat the drum of left-wing rhetoric, their threat to the NRA and law-abiding Americans was met with laughter and the challenge to bring it on.

Why doesn’t this group walk to Chicago and confront the epidemic amounts of gun violence in that city? Do you think more restrictive gun laws will help?

It will never work! You are just creating even more support for @NRA.

Pfffff…If celebs had the influence that they like to think they do Hillary would be POTUS right now, but I’m sure the #NRA will be appreciative of the increased membership numbers this will generate. #Fail #2A

So this is the group starting the next civil war by attempting to confiscate firearms from law abiding citizens.
