A few days ago, NRA asked singer John Legend e thinks that former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell is a “danger to the nation and police”
NRA asked: “.@johnlegend do you consider veteran United States Navy SEAL, Purple Heart recipient, and #NRA member @MarcusLuttrell “a danger to this nation and to the police”?”

John Legend answered that he thinks that NRA is a danger to America.
“You can show me all the individuals you want. I’m sure they are wonderful people. The NRA’s agenda is to sell more guns and stop any meaningful gun safety measures. You are a danger to America. You are a danger to law enforcement,” Legend wrote.
Of course, you are willfully missing the part where he specifically criticizes the NRA as an organization, and never any individual NRA member.
When you have to lie to make your argument, you prove you have no argument at all.
Legend is dead wrong because he actually has forsaken what it means to be American. Luckily, some people educated him what NRA really means.
Come to Philadelphia and ask cops who the danger is to them…They won’t answer “NRA members.” Further, why this stupid assertion the NRA cares about gun sales? Want to debate gun policy, fine. But just absurd to bring in “shadowy profiteering” bromides. https://t.co/5nNgm286ut

John is dead wrong. About the agenda, about the safety measures, and the NRAs effect.
And I’m pretty sure he believes he is right and he is trying to do good. The effect of propaganda. https://t.co/3LYEPVpBMK

That's just not true John
I'm sure you're a wonderful person
The #NRA's agenda is to support the Constitution from ill-informed folks just like you
You are a danger to individual liberty https://t.co/yZDcJ33JNF

You must not know the @NRA’s mission statement, given the following tweet. You are alienating and marginalizing people—especially people who may be fans or buyers of your music—with this statement. https://t.co/DgZA0sakqe

But that isn't true John. The NRA supports many gun control measures and offers education and training for gun safety.
Guns are a tool used in self defense. They provide personal empowerment. But you have to feel confident and knowledgable. That's all the NRA does. They inform. https://t.co/Oun2UgfAcg

Almost every gun safety program I and my family have been has been from an NRA instructor. https://t.co/DXGpVkcKia

The NRA and its members plan, fund, and run more gun safety programs in a day than every gun control group in the country combined does in a decade. https://t.co/fr643S6u29

This line about law enforcement is incredible. It's the kind of argument a police apologist constructs. If a cop fears the population they are policing they should not be a cop. The idea a less armed people would suddenly be less brutalized by roidal racist cops is delusional https://t.co/DBvwHFK5zu

They say ignorance is bliss… well, John Legend is living in bliss!! All the “schooling” in the world will not educate those who refuse to be educated but rather insist on remaining ignorant. John Legend is every bit as informed as Alyssa Milano. You can tell them the truth but they have a huge listening problem. They’ve been thoroughly indoctrinated.
