TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -Dana Loesch, the spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association (NRA) has suddenly moved her family from their home in California because of what she says were death threats from “gun control advocates.”
“Spent my weekend preparing to move due to repeated threats from gun control advocates,” Loesch tweeted Sunday to her 642,000 followers.
Loesch, wrote that one person threatened to shoot her after obtaining her private cellphone number, another threatened rape and another “dragged her kids into” the threats, ultimately prompting the move.
The 39-year-old mother of two made waves recently after warning that any new gun control measures in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting massacre could result in an eventual total ban on guns.
“They are going to ban every single part of a rifle — period — your regular hunting rifle, until the whole thing is banned. It was made perfectly clear last week and it was made perfectly clear the week before that — no bans, no bills, period. None,” she said.
The NRA spends millions intervening in campaigns and lobbying in the US. According to Politifact.com, the NRA has spent $203.2 million on political activities since 1998.
