Shannon Watts, national leader of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, also rebuked the NRA for trying to co-opt the Wear Orange weekend.
“The @NRA opposes gun safety training in bills, they oppose background checks on unlicensed gun sales, they oppose red flag laws, they oppose banning bump stocks, they oppose child access prevention laws," said Watts. "So what part of that is gun safety?" https://t.co/eAejlLiwlB
