Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- On July 21 2014 Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founder Shannon Watts tweeted that Virginia’s congressional candidate Mike Dickinson is her group’s “next target.”
This was in response to a July 20 tweet in which Dickinson, a self-described “left wing liberal,” wrote: “People generally don’t want to die. I own a gun and if I’m touched I’m shooting.”
Watts (pictured) then tweeted: “Talk about gun bullies. Ladies here is your next target.”
She deleted the tweet shortly after posting it, but not before “@10uhseejed grabbed a screenshot” and Twitchy.com posted it.
On April 6 Breitbart News reported that Dickinson suggested the NRA was more obscene than Hustler magazine.
