Alyssa Milano Rants NRA 'Doesn't Care About The American People, Its Members Or Our Troops.' Twitter Crushes Her.

On Monday, actress Alyssa Milano (yes, the same woman who has tweeted "F*** you, NRA" but has armed bodyguards), issued a calumny directed against the NRA that was not only nasty as hell, but downright false:

To try to buttress her argument, Milano then quoted an article for Business Insider from 2013 written by Walter Hickey, who is currently the chief culture writer for Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight:

The NRA doesn’t care about veterans? They’re a non-profit organization but they only care only about profit?

The NRA Foundation has given $61 million to a variety of local groups since 2010; 500 schools received more than $7.3 million from 2010 through 2016; 4-H groups have received $12.2 million since 2010, and Boy Scout troops and councils received $4 million.

As far as not caring about veterans, try again: the NRA has worked with Congress to support the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act, and more recently, the Mental Health and Safe Communities Act.

There was genuine outrage directed at Milano on Twitter:
