Tragedies often bring out the best in people.
Responding to a tweet by author Joyce Carol Oates, actress Marg Helgenberger said "one can only hope" that members of the NRA get shot, Twitchy reported Tuesday.
"If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms," Oates tweeted Friday.
"@JoyceCarolOates One can only hope, but sadly I don't think anything would change," the CSI star tweeted in response.
This wasn't taken particularly well:
"@MargHelgen @JoyceCarolOates are you encouraging violence against those who dare disagree with you?" asked "Jeremy Avery."
"Congrats for becoming yet another clueless, VIOLENT, liberal 'elite' who shoved her foot in her mouth. Shame on you, lady," added "Conservative Girl."
A Texas democrat party leader added another sensible contribution to the national discussion:
"Can we now shoot the #NRA and everyone who defends them?"
Of course, when he said "Can we shoot" NRA members he meant no violence.
John Cobaruvvias, the Texas Democratic Party leader who issued a tweet advocating violence against NRA members, told Houston ABC affiliate KTRK Monday that his call to shoot supporters of the pro-gun group was not a death threat.
"My apologies to those I offended concerning the #nra. My emotions on the subject got the better of me. It didn't help," he said.
And later the same day went on to call the NRA a "terrorist" organization."
More death threats agaisnt the NRA can seen here.
President Barack Obama treaded carefully, but did say
President Barack Obama carefully avoided overtly criticizing the nation's largest pro-gun lobbying group, the National Rifle Association, on Wednesday, saying only that he hopes the group's members "will do some self-reflection" following the massacre of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last Friday. The president made the comments at a press conference announcing a joint task force led by Vice President Joe Biden to consider ways to reduce gun violence.
So what are liberals are demanding? Three things, for starters:

Kind of like wishing Marg Helgenberger a cold night in the sack. That’s not a threat for most ~ for her it may well be the worst thing in the world.
I sure have! I'm not waiting for mid-January to buy my M4. I'll be ratcheting up the timetable to later this month.
And given the tragic decision of CTD to capitulate to feckless turds like Obama and his bunch, I'll be looking for a better online retailer for bulk ammo ensure Marxist faggots like Obama can't ban me from my God-given right to defend myself and my family.
The civility of the Left knows no bounds.
Bring it, bimbo!
History and ideology clearly tell us that leftists are inevitably violent people. They are behind the greatest losses of life in history. Be extremely wary of them. The NRA had nothing to do with the school tragedy and have long worked for safety and to protect children and others from harm due to firearms misuse. Despite that, the left sees an opportunity to attack a political opponent and will go to extreme lengths, as we can see, to dehumanize their opponents and to foment violence against them.
I have no idea who she is. Conservatives don’t support liberal media.
Love the new tone coming out of Hollywood.
So this crazy loon is wishing people dead yet not a peep from the media..surprise surprise..just another left wing whack job who looks like an old sack of potatoes.
Something that should be repeated ten times a day in every classroom and workplace on the planet.
She was an investigator on CSI and was the prostitute on China Beach.
Another liberal promoting violence. Why do they hate so much? Are they that mean and vile inside, have no soul or just plain stupid? I know, the answer is “yes”. Liberalism is a metal disorder.
Isn’t totally amazing that people that consider themselves SO intelligent and in tune with the world and its realities - HAVE NO CLUE WHAT-SO-EVER about subjects from sex, murder, guns, politics, “Reality in General” babies and how they are born, dogs, food, etc., etc.......

Shot dead by government goons or by raging mobs of liberals? THAT is what she wishes?
the left sees an opportunity to attack a political opponent and will go to extreme lengths, as we can see, to dehumanize their opponents and to foment violence against them.
I think the rest of the country is getting extremely fed up with their hypocritical blathering. The left’s nature is violent if you disagree much like the talban. Well, we disagree so bring it you bunch of haters.
