Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is targeting country music star Alan Jackson and comedian Jeff Foxworthy for agreeing to appear at the 2015 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibitions, April 11 in Nashville.
In response, Moms Demand Action posted an announcement to Facebook saying: “Alan Jackson and Jeff Foxworthy agreed to open [the 2015] NRA convention after the NRA pushed to arm convicted criminals, blocked federal gun violence research, and [their] board members promoted armed insurrection.”
They then called on gun control supporters to “educate these celebrities on the dangerous and irresponsible policies of the [NRA].”
Moms Demand Action attached a second page where gun control supporters can gather talking points to use against Jackson and Foxworthy. Among these are claims that the “NRA fights to arm terrorists,” the “NRA fights to arm criminals,” and suggestions that the NRA “[scares] people just to boost gun sales.”
Tickets for Jackson and Foxworthy go on sale January 15.
