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).
You can see some tweets calling out the NRA below:
Someone sent me this image of the latest copy of NRA's magazine, featuring a story with the words "Target Practice" next to a photo of Nancy Pelosi with Gabby Giffords. Maybe don't do this @NRA. pic.twitter.com/u9fQhxwEyk

This is a call for violence by the @NRA against @GabbyGiffords, who was nearly killed by gunfire and @SpeakerPelosi, the most powerful legislator in America. The NRA should face legal consequences. But let’s put them out of business with boycotts and ballot boxes. #EnoughIsEnough pic.twitter.com/XFTAg5XJWI
