Actress and progressive activist Alyssa Milano took to Twitter this week to try to find another way to smear the Left’s primary target since Parkland, the National Rifle Association. The result was a racially charged tweet that initiated yet another internet meltdown.
Earlier this week, Milano attempted to contribute to the gun control debate by posting this gem:
“If @NRA or @NRATv were run by brown or black people, it would be labeled a terrorist organization with hate propaganda programming that incites violence.”

Most notable of the responses was from the NRA’s Colion Noir, who happens to be black and never shies away from addressing the issue of race as it relates to gun rights.
“That’s odd because I spent all last week being called a Terrorist by people who say what you just said only without the passive aggressive tone,” he wrote (h/t Twitchy).

Also, this proves another leftist narrative false. I thought the NRA was owned and ran by gun manufacturers? 7%? Weak.

This isn’t the first time Milano has caused a stir online with a gun control post. A few days after the Parkland shooting, she posted what she believed to be a solid rationale for repealing the Second Amendment: It was written way back when, well, the Constitution was written:
