Gun Rights Across America Washington: Social Media Warriors of the Gun Lobby

Across the nation, gun lobby groups have discovered the merits of Facebook. They are remarkably good at sharing anything and everything, often times without the kind of thought that larger, more established organizations put into messaging. For example, late last year Gun Rights Across America Washington State (GRAAWS), now known as Gun Rights Across America Northwest (GRAANW) posted a series of quotes from Nazi leaders:

GRAAWS; Nazi Germany

We can only assume that the images were somehow intended to deride the gun violence prevention movement. But they could, of course, just be quoting Nazis because they like the quote. I’m not really sure which would be more surprising.

Or, there is the vile sexism:

There really isn’t any situation where comparing a person’s intelligence to that of a chicken is alright.

GRAAWS;

It isn’t just GRAANW though. Here in Washington they are joined by groups such as Gun Right Coalition, who once used a clearly racist caricature of Barack Obama; Washington 2A (home of the image found below); and a wide series of other groups.
