Actress Marg Helgenberger: 'One can only hope' NRA members are shot dead

Since the tragic shootings in Newtown, Conn., liberals have called for the death of those who support gun rights.  The latest to wish harm on those Second Amendment-loving people is CSI star Marg Helgenberger.

Responding to a tweet by author Joyce Carol Oates, Helgenberger said “one can only hope” that members of the NRA get shot, Twitchy reported Tuesday.

“If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms,” Oates tweeted Friday.

@JoyceCarolOates One can only hope, but sadly I don’t think anything would change,” the CSI star tweeted in response.

@MargHelgen @JoyceCarolOates are you encouraging violence against those who dare disagree with you?” asked “Jeremy Avery.”

“Congrats for becoming yet another clueless, VIOLENT, liberal ‘elite’ who shoved her foot in her mouth. Shame on you, lady,” added “Conservative Girl.”

“Bet you didn’t know the NRA was started to arm Free Blacks so they could protect themselves from the Democrat-founded KKK,” another person said.

Helgenberger is not the only person expressing a desire to see gun supporters harmed.

John Cobarruvias, a member of the Texas Democratic Party Executive Committee, issued a tweet calling for supporters and members of the NRA to be shot.  Although he deleted his tweet and offered a weak apology, his Facebook page still contains a message saying that NRA members “need to [be] wiped off the face of the earth.”

In February 2011, we said that liberalism is an ideology of hate and rage. Since then, it has gotten even worse.
