A Nebraska professor has been charged with property destruction of an NRA lobbyist’s house, according to a Monday report.
University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor Patricia Wonch Hill received a misdemeanor charge after spraying fake blood on NRA lobbyist Chris Cox’s house in October 2017 and January of 2018, Omaha World-Herald reported.
Hill was not the only academic activist to protest Cox. Her UNL colleague, English professor Amanda Gailey, and former College of William and Mary visiting professor Catherine Koebel co-founded The Great American Gun Melt to lend the gun control movement a more radical element, according to The Washington Post.
Her fellow activist had a sign that said, “Chris Cox profits off dead kids,” along with a graphic photo of a child with a gunshot wound to the head. We’ve censored it here but Chris Cox profited off the bullet that killed this kid so he can deal. pic.twitter.com/LF4BrGUtre

Another gun control faction, Betsy Riot, describes itself as a “neo-suffragist punk-patriot resistance defending America against Trumpism and metaphorically kicking NRA gunf***ery in the balls.” Kentucky Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell “debas[ed] democracy” by “Chris Cox-sucking the blood money-jizzing death dick of the NRA,” the group said.
Hill’s trial date is set for May 21. The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Hill and Gailey for comment but received none in time for press. UNL had no additional comment beyond what it provided Omaha World-Herald.
