A war is brewing across America, ladies and gentlemen, and it involves the color orange.
On behalf of National Gun Violence Awareness Day, gun advocates with the scandalous Everytown for Gun Safety non-profit donned orange shirts Friday and tweeted #WearOrange to their social media followers. Never mind the fact that the non-profit has done virtually nothing to reduce gun violence and enhance gun safety …
Enter the National Rifle Association, which decided to make its own statement Friday by reminding the non-profit of two things: One, it’s been using the color orange for far longer than Everytown for Gun Safety, and two, it’s actually taken concrete actions to impact the world in a positive way.
🔶 NRA SOCIAL GOING ORANGE: While Everytown for Gun Safety has devoted close to no resources to making citizens safer, the NRA continues to be the world's leading gun safety organization since 1871. 📸 Send us pics in your orange hunting and NRA gear to be featured. #wearorange pic.twitter.com/16cE7srlZo

*round of applause*
This is where the story takes an amusing turn. Remember Alyssa Milano, the whiny left-wing actress who spends her days kvetching on Twitter about literally everything on Earth, including but not limited to President Donald Trump and people who pray after tragedies? In her latest complaint posted Friday, the left-wing zealot cried over the NRA’s tweet.
“The @NRA trying to sabotage #wearorange is disgusting and heartless,” she complained. “NRA members! I know you are good people. Is this really a club you want to belong to? A club of bullies that feels threatened by people wearing orange to honor the victims of preventable gun violence?”
But the NRA wasn’t trying to sabotage anything or bully anyone. It was merely positing some valid points.

The point clearly flew right over Milano’s head, as usual. It would have taken just a matter of minutes for the actress to pull up the NRA’s website and discover that orange is a color commonly worn by its members, particularly those who hunt.
While the NRA never directly responded to the actress’s criticism, thankfully its members took some time Friday to drop some truth bombs on her.
WOW you really have no clue do you? The NRA has always preached gun safety. Why do you think hunters wear orange? Are you really that clueless?

Considering hunters have worn blaze orange for safety for a few decades you might want to pick a new color. Seems like you are attempting to steal the color and are now bullying.

Nice try, though!
They also dinged her for something she had tweeted Thursday, when she opined on Twitter, “NRA stands for Not Relevant Anymore.”
According to whom exactly? Certainly not its 5 million members, not to mention the millions of leftist activists like Milano who talk about the NRA every single day of their miserable lives.
Check out the earth-shattering backlash she received for this ill-advised tweet:
NRA has over 5 million paying members, that beats your free followers on Twitter by far. You just defined yourself as less relevant than the NRA.

Milano should seriously think twice before posting tweets, as she had a sad little habit of posting dumb things over and over and over again.
