Since the election, anti-gunners have taken to Twitter to slam the NRA and their backing of now President-elect Donald Trump.
@CaudellSara NRA: "The only way to stop a bad 4-year-old with a gun is a good 4-year-old with a gun."

At least if you’re going to use our mantra, make sure you use it in the right context. Then again, this is what happens when you listen to the Brady Campaign’s “Toddlers Killer” initiative.
Can anyone affiliated with the @NRA make a cogent, insult-free argument as to why they oppose criminal background checks? I'm listening.

We’re not opposed to criminal background checks. We’re opposed to expanding a system that is severely flawed. As it is, 38 states provide only 80 percent of their convictions to the FBI, meaning the National Instant Background Check System (NICS) isn’t comprehensive.
NRA is a lobby shop for gun manufacturers and dealers… and do NOT even represent their own members.

The NRA does represent its more than 5 million members. Every NRA member has different issues that he or she are passionate about. Some members happen to work for gun manufacturers and dealers. That doesn’t mean that the NRA speaks only for those members.
I am not anit-gun, per se. But I am anti-NRA. They are SWINE and refuse even the simplest laws to help prevent guns from getting to assholes

Actually, if you go back and look, the NRA was the one who proposed the National Instant Background Check System. They did this purposely to keep guns away from criminals.
Trump SIMPLY doesn't want to work…NEVER! NO stay ad WH; NO responsabilities; Just signing what someone else ( Putin NRA KKK) write for him https://t.co/RkZuLrONfL

Why are anti-gunners so quick to compare the NRA to extreme groups like the Ku Klux Klan? The NRA doesn’t force legislators to sign bills into law. They simply educate the ill-informed about gun issues as a means of protecting their members.
@realDonaldTrump Anther Day in da hood anther "NRA Law abiding gun owner" does a drive by. Can we have a SCOTUS who doesnt support Gang_guns
— SheepODoom (@sheepodoom) November 14, 2016
Last time I checked, the people who are committing doing drive-bys are criminals who don’t follow gun laws.
To influence leadership & demand gun sense, join NRA to demand removal of Wayne LaPierre as exec dir & enact sane gun law. Only costs $40.

Yeah, because gun owners wouldn’t see through that.
