‘One can only hope’ NRA members are shot dead
Flopping Aces ^ | 12-20-12 | DrJohn

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.

Cobaruvvias added

"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.

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.

Marg Helgenberger, another “actress” that worked her way to the top, face down on the casting couch.

I have no idea who she is. Conservatives don’t support liberal media.

Something that should be repeated ten times a day in every classroom and workplace on the planet.

Goes to show many actors are very empty people.
Without a role, a script, a director and 60 retakes they don't make any sense.

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.......

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.

Lesson 1: Give the left no quarter.. They are the enemy of prosperity and freedom, and they can never be trusted.

Would the complementary wish be for me to hope for her to have children of “less than average intelligence” since she insists on being so stupid?

That means she wishes many Democrats get shot. Liberal anti-gun people are so stupid. It's obvious why a phony like Obama is POTUS.

I've heard of CSI. I still owned a TV when China Beach was on, but apparently I didn't watch it enough to remember her.

I watch conservative news on the net, and free movies if they're any good. The rest of it gets the big flush.

If you don't have one by now good luck EVER getting one. Same goes for ammo and magazines. What was in the pipeline is GONE already. I fully suspect that the AWB will be jammed through as soon as possible and the manufacturers will not have time to refill the pipeline before the ban goes into effect. I believe your window of opportunity has closed.

Democrats are against guns and gun violence, but they want to use guns to shoot law-abiding, American citizens.

She of course misses the salient point that armed citizens do not get shot. Unarmed citizens get shot by non NRA members who are armed and insane.

Your statement doesn’t fit her pre-selected template for how violence occurs in this country.

Leftists seldom let facts get in the way.

Well then I guess it’s only fair that we can hope Marg Helgenberger is someday raped and beaten to death by one of her fellow leftist vermin because there was no gun to save her.

This is the new norm for failed actors, actresses, musicians, etc-say something outrageous and garner attention in hopes of making a comeback. I’ve never heard of this witch before this and I have already forgotten her name.

There were a handful of them at the local gun store, but they were going fast. Where they once had a whole wall of them, only the most expensive ones remained with the cheapest being $2250. I doubt it’ll be there when I go back.

I don’t believe, however, that an AWB will become law right now. I’m starting to believe in Christmas miracles, and this year’s will be that a plurality of Americans actually believe that an AWB is stupid and unnecessary. We shall see.

One can only hope that she is never caught in a situation where there are no armed good guys to save her sorry ass. Be careful of the evil you wish on others because it just may boomerang back at ya bit#%

If a conservative had said such a threat even in jest to a Libby group the Pol Pol and a dozen Civil Liberty Shysters would be responding. The first would respond to residence for questioning. The second would be filing hate speech lawsuits.
