Before this morning’s presser, lefties had hoped that NRA chief Wayne LaPierre would accept blame on behalf of the NRA for last week’s massacre in Newtown. Instead, he called for our nation’s schools to be equipped with armed guards and reiterated that guns can also be tools of self-defense. That didn’t sit well with anti-gun zealots, and Twitter exploded with hate directed at LaPierre and the NRA:
Wayne LaPierre and his stooges are monsters, plain and simple. Fuck guns and fuck them.

Dear Wayne Lapierre, Fuck You! Most sincerely, The Moms.
— Lesley Chesterman (@lesleychestrman) December 21, 2012
LaPierre give it up. Most of us hate you more then we do the mentally ill shooter. You ARE just as responsible fuck you& your fucking guns

Fuck you Wayne Lapierre. You have blood on your hands, please get off my TV screen.
— Chase Coxxx (@JuicyGigolo) December 21, 2012
Several Twitterers volunteered to take it to the next level and shoot NRA members and officials:
Can…can we shoot…the NRA?
— Nicholas Assunto (@NickJAss) December 21, 2012

— Jennifer Longoria(@jennlongoria) December 21, 2012
@chasingthehill At times like this I wish that I was an American so that I can shoot the shit out of Wayne(the wanker Lapierre (ironic Brit)
— Elsie Assap (@ElsieAssap) December 21, 2012
While others took a more passive approach:
FUCK YOU LaPierre! Just FUCK YOU! Times like this I hope St. Peter is at the gait to send you straight to hell for eternity

— David McCreath (@mccreath) December 21, 2012
And hoped that someone else would do the dirty work:
The NRA said ‘The way to deal with bad people with guns is to have good people with guns’ so can someone good shoot the NRA?

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre concluded. someone should shoot this guy

I’m not saying you should, but if someone were to shoot and kill high-ranking NRA officials, I don’t think I’d be upset with that person.
— Jeff Ferguson (@JeffreyTFerg) December 21, 2012

— mistletoe smiley (@mister_smiley) December 21, 2012
But that wasn’t enough for others, who implored LaPierre and NRA members to kill themselves:
If there is any justice in the world Wayne LaPierre will accidentally drop his gun and shoot himself in the face. #Newton
