1. After #VirginiaBeachShooting, @NRA spokesperson claimed that the gun lobby had nothing to do with "this man's crime."

This is false.

The truth is, @NRA actively lobbied VA lawmakers & Congress to make it *easier* for this man to kill.

This thread has the receipts.
@NRA 2. @WSJ reports #VirginiaBeachShooting killer

-made multiple firearm purchases in recent weeks
-used gun silencer
-used high capacity magazines

@NRA lobbied against purchase limits & high capacity magazine ban in VA. It pushed Congress to make it easier to buy gun silencers
@NRA @WSJ 3. I visited @NRA website & found its "call to action" from Jan. 15.

"Please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE Gov. Northam's gun control bills."

It lists 3 bills that could've made it harder for #VirginiaBeachShooting killer to get guns
@NRA @WSJ 4. In Congress, @NRA sought to make it easier to buy gun silencers by significantly limited federal restrictions. Again, here are the receipts. #VirginiaBeachShooting
@NRA @WSJ 5. #VirginiaBeachShooting = 150th of 2019.
