On July 21 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.
