Shannon Watts is the Indianapolis mom who heads Moms Demand Action, a grassroots organization created in the wake of the Sandy Hill shootings to promote gun control initiatives. In the last two years the organization has grown to be a force powerful enough to worry the NRA.
Recently the NRA blocked Shannon Watts on Twitter. Shannon tweeted it out.
What followed is not surprising. NRA supporters began tweeting misogynistic and threatening tweets using the hashtag, #ImBlockedByShannonWatts.
Shannon answered back with these words, “Bring it. Not scared. Won’t be bullied.”
