A state leader of a national organization calling for stiff gun control legislation has been barred from possessing a firearm because of a restraining order. Yet she posted a photo of herself holding a gun on Twitter.
Erika Quinn, a self-described Oklahoma leader for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, was ordered to maintain a minimum 300-yard distance from three minor children.
She also “is prohibited from injuring, abusing, sexually abusing, molesting, harassing, stalking, threatening or otherwise interfering with the protected person(s), and from the use, attempted use or threatened use of physical force against the protected person(s) that would reasonably be expected to cause bodily injury,” according to the order pictured below, provided by TruthRevolt.
Further down the order is a “NOTICE: Federal Firearm Prohibition” shown below. It provides that she would be subject to a penalty of $250,000 fine and 10 years imprisonment if she possesses, transports, ships or receives “any firearm or ammunition” while subject to the order.
Here’s a screenshot of Quinn’s Twitter page, where she describes herself as an “accidental activist for Moms Demand Action” and tweets “#IsntAfraidOfTheNRAeither.”
Before Quinn’s Twitter account was closed, she posted some photos of her with a long gun in her hands. It’s unclear whether the protective order is still in effect, or when the photo was taken. Nonetheless, another Twitter user managed to take a screenshot of her post before the account was taken down.

If Quinn is, in fact, in violation of the order of protection, I hope she enjoys the cuisine at the state hoosegow. In either case, she may want to re-think that whole Moms Demand Action affiliation.
