Carolyn Meadows was elected president of the National Rifle Association in April, 2019. She lives in Marietta, Georgia. As of Wednesday night, off-duty Cobb County deputies are outside her home protecting her from threats.
The chairwoman of the local Democratic Party told a television reporter that “someone stuffed Meadows’ mailbox with hundreds of anti-gun postcards.” She said they don’t condone that behavior.
The Democrats want you to think that the NRA president is reacting to postcards by hiring off-duty deputies to protect her house. I expect there’s more to it than that. The NRA has not commented (nor should they).
Remember, Erick Erickson had to hire armed security for months due to political threats against him. Remember, a man armed with a rifle went to a baseball field in Virginia with a list of Republicans to murder, and shot Rep. Steve Scalise.
Meadows used to be very active in the Republican Party, according to the Cobb County GOP chairman. But Democrats say this is about postcards.
Let me ask you: if Democrats are so gun shy and believe nobody should carry or own guns, why would anyone need to fear violence from them? Maybe this is why the media is so disinterested in the politics of the Dayton shooter, because we should have nothing to fear from people who believe like he does.
