The leftist push for gun control in the wake of a Florida school shooting took a turn for the bizarre — and creepy — Tuesday morning, after a billboard in Louisville, Kentucky was vandalized with the words, “KILL THE NRA.”
The billboard is apparently “calling out the National Rifle Association following the recent school shootings in Kentucky and Florida,” according to local media. The message was signed, “Resist 45” — the calling card of a local Kentucky group that “opposes President Donald Trump” (to put it mildly) — likely some of the same people who have been suggesting Republicans have “blood on their hands” for supporting gun rights.
