NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch on Thursday berated the survivors of a mass shooting in Parkland, Florida for taking part in an anti-gun rally in Washington, D.C. instead of spending the money on school security.
Loesch began her weekly appearance on Fox & Friends by arguing that Democrats should be “forced” to admit that they want to abolish the Second Amendment.
“That’s exactly what they want,” she insisted. “They just stop short of actually articulating it because they know it doesn’t poll well.”
Loesch reacted to last weekend’s March for Our Lives by calling herself a “free speech purist” and then slamming the participants of the event.
“I’m fine,” she said. “I just think that all of the money that was spent on concerts and porta-potties and… armed security — a lot of that could have been spent on school security measures. All of those individuals could have actually been meeting with elected officials.”
The NRA is on record calling for more guns in schools. But Loesch did not say if the NRA would cancel its own convention to spend the money on “school safety measures.”
“You can march all day long,” Loesch scoffed. “Ultimately, you’ve got to follow it up with action.”
The NRA spokesperson went on to assail anti-gun activists who have criticized her caustic style.
“It’s hasn’t been just me,” she revealed. “It’s been anybody who supported the Second Amendment and their right of self defense. You know, we’re not terrorists. I’m a mother! One of my oldest children is just a year or so younger than some of these teenagers that are on television.”
According to Loesch, her own children have noticed the anti-NRA “bias on television.”
“They see that there’s only one side ever presented!” she exclaimed. “It’s not a debate. You’re just being lectured to.”
Fox News host Pete Hegseth agreed.
“We see it, the kids see it, everyone sees it,” he said. “And yet, we’re getting policy advice from young people who have the right to speak out as much as they want but it doesn’t make you a gun expert out of the gate.”
Hegseth praised Loesch for “spending your lifetime committed to what the Second Amendment truly means.”
Loesch agreed and slammed Parkland activist for suggesting policy when they are “not mature enough to carry a firearm” — even though most of them are old enough to purchase guns in many states.
“I really wish the other side of the debate would stop projecting some bigoted notions on Second Amendment advocates,” Loesch complained. “Stop and listen! Maybe give your fellow Americans a little bit of credit.”

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
