The NRA is taking serious heat online for publishing an article in their magazine entitled "Target Practice" accompanied by a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former lawmaker Gabby Giffords who is a victim of gun violence.
Gun control advocates and Pelosi's colleagues were quick to pounce on the gun group over the article published in their American Rifleman magazine (a screenshot can be seen below).
