Who Is Dana Loesch? The Story Behind the Face of the NRA

Loesch, who was roundly booed at a contrived CNN town hall to address gun control, pointed out that most of the mass shootings had one common denominator: Epic FBI incompetence. "Our family will be there on March 24 to stand side by side with this incredible generation of young people from all over the country", Clooney told USA Today. And I, nor the millions of people that I represent as part of this organization that I'm here speaking for, none of us support people who are insane, who are a danger to themselves, who are a danger to others getting their hands on a firearm.

"To every politician who is taking donations from the NRA, shame on you", Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school senior Emma Gonzalez said in a Saturday speech. "And it was over 5,000 people".

Her boss, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, said that "the elites" don't want to protect children and use shootings as an excuse to get rid of the Second Amendment and to install a socialist state.

Natasha, the student who branded Loesch a liar, has tweeted "F**k Donald Trump" at least three times. He told me he is going to go back to D.C. and consider all the things I brought up.

Loesch replied the NRA is waiting on the Justice Department to make a ruling on bump stocks.

Loesch did refrain from trying to turn attention to gun violence in movies and TV shows, which the NRA did in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings in 2012.

Following the Las Vegas shooting in October (in which the shooter had no known mental health disorders), Loesch appeared on Fox and Friends. "You guys love it", she continued. Now I'm not saying that you love the tragedy, but I am saying that you love the ratings, ' she said, directing her comments to reporters in the back of a hotel ballroom. "Here's a message for people in the legacy media... don't trust white nationalists".

Students and teachers at the Parkland shooting got a chance to ask questions to policy makers and the NRA at a CNN Town Hall on February 20.
