The National Rifle Association was hit by hackers on Wednesday who released a fake announcement vowing to arm more members of the LGBTQ and black communities, MassLive.com reported.

The fake press release touted what it called the “Share the Safety” program, which would “get guns into the hands of statistically under-armed Americans—from homosexuals to the elderly to besieged urban communities.” For every gun bought after July 4, the release stated, a firearm would be donated to “an at-risk American citizen in the urban center of their choice.”

The release was linked to a fake website saying the “program,” supposedly sponsored by Smith & Wesson, would begin on July 4 and target communities like Chicago, Oakland, and East St. Louis, among others. Screenshots from the site can be seen below:

Officials from both Smith & Wesson and the NRA confirmed that “Share the Safety” was fake on Wednesday, with an NRA spokesperson saying the parties responsible “skinned” the group’s website, meaning that they “grabbed [its] framework.”

President Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall at the southern border with Mexico has been a huge winner with his base. But there is one group of people who are not happy: the Texans who actually live in the region where the wall would be built.

According to the Washington Post, many people in the region have no intention of letting the federal government seize their land to construct the wall, like Afghanistan war veteran Salvador Castillo of Brownsville, who received a letter from officials demanding unlimited access to and use of his land, which gradually escalated into a lawsuit.

Team Trump wants to steal another election — and there’s only one way to beat them back
