CT Governor Falls Off Rocker, Claims NRA is ‘Terrorist Organization’

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has lost his ever-loving mind! He actually stated that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has tuned into a “terrorist organization.”

That’s right. He called the United States’ most powerful gun lobby organization terrorists in response to the Parkland school shooting….even though not a single one of their millions of members has ever gone on a shooting spree.

Malloy, as you can imagine, is a Democrat. Shocker, right?

Fox News Insider reports: 

Malloy said the Fairfax, Va.-based Second Amendment organization is today a “far cry” from what it was even 20 years ago.


“They don’t understand Middle America.” -NRA Spokeswoman, Dana Loesch


The NRA itself is 146 years old, its first president being Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who later became a Republican senator from Rhode Island.

Malloy said that in 1999 – the same year as the Columbine High School shooting – the NRA declared that teachers should not be armed.

“In the 90s, [the NRA] said we should have universal background checks,” Malloy continued, “They have in essence become a terrorist organization.”

Elsewhere in Hartford, the capital city’s mayor said it is “ridiculous” for the NRA to claim to be a “voice for gun safety.”

“If the NRA had its way, we wouldn’t have [gun] permitting,” Democrat Luke Bronin said.

NRA official Jennifer Baker told FOX-61 that voters are “fed up with politicians who engage in political stunts and childish name-calling rather than serious policy discussions.”

Baker stated that the pistol shooting course hosted by the NRA is the “best training available for anyone seeking to carry a concealed firearm for self-protection.”

“Public safety isn’t improved by eliminating the NRA training and standards… or calling people who disagree with you ‘terrorists’,” she added.
