The National Rifle Association's NRA-TV smeared protesters from the January 21st Women's March on Washington by blaming them for vandalism and property damage that took place on Inauguration Day, January 20 - the day before the Women's March even took place. Mallory's letter was in response to NRA's latest ad which claims that citizens should arm themselves against the threat of violent protestors in big cities, mostly women and people of color.
Tamika Mallory, co-organizer of the Women's March said she believes the recent actions of the NRA is evidence that the organization on cares about the rights of white gun owners.
"It is very risky for an organization that is the leader of many gun owners to be telling their members anything but to be careful, to be safe, to de-escalate", Mallory continued.
The NRA reacted by releasing another video, this time by NRA talk-show host Grant Stinchfield called "We Don't Apologize for Telling the Truth". On July 14th, Women's March and partners will mobilize a mass demonstration, again grounded in the principles of Kingian nonviolence, to denounce the false and intimidating rhetoric of hatred and send a clear message that our movement will proudly and bravely continue to strive for the respect of the civil and human rights of all people.

If the wound shows any signs of infection (redness, pain or swelling) or if the cut is deep, get medical attention immediately. Vibrio bacteria can enter the body through a break in the skin or by consuming contaminated seafood.
"Recent actions by the NRA demonstrate not only a complete disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America - your fellow citizens - but appear to be a direct endorsement of violence against these citizens exercising their constitutional right to protest...."
"You call it risky and demand it to be taken down?"
However, the group is also angry because of the NRA didn't speak up during the trial of a police officer who killed motorist and licensed gun owner Philando Castille. "I'm here to tell you not a chance". "We know that we are not safe, but we are not scared, either", Funmilola Fagbamila, a member of Black Lives Matter L.A., says in the video.
The Women's March Facebook event announces a pushback against the highly inflammatory "us-versus-them" narrative being sold by the NRA at a time when the Democratic party seems to have lost its ability to stand effectively against gun violence and the organizations that prevent lawmakers from dealing with it. "But we will not be intimidated into silence", the event page reads.
