Brianna Wu is a crazy person. I have covered her (arguably him) before and her paranoid fantasy that privatization of space means that CEOs will race to the moon to start the kinetic bombardment of Earth for profit. Apparently Wu cannot separate reality from the fantasy world of her terrible video games.
(On a side note, that her husband has won Hugo Awards for fan art means to me that the Hugo Award has become a meaningless sham. Rest in peace, Robert A. Heinlein.)
Brianna Wu is running for Congress for the 8th District of Massachusetts, which included the wealthy, predominantly white, suburbs of Boston.
Wu decided to jump in on the gun issue with this tweet.
I talk to gun owners often on the campaign trail. Many are Republican. They feel betrayed the @nra.
Why? Because responsible gun owners are almost ALWAYS in favor of mandatory safety training. It seems irresponsible to them to oppose it. https://t.co/98rA4FypRf

I want to know how many NRA members and gun owners she knows in the hyper Liberal enclave of Boston she lives in.
Given her reputation as a scam artist in the gaming community, I’d venture a guess that this is a lie.
She is just another liberal promoting the Große Lüge that the NRA doesn’t represent the interests of it’s members anymore.
So what that the NRA has 5 Million (and growing rapidly) members, the members don’t agree with the leadership and so the NRA members will support our gun control measures even if the leadership doesn’t.
That is a remarkably stupid and factually inaccurate argument. People have been joining the NRA in droves precisely because after Parkland, they see that the NRA has been right all along that the Democrats want to take your guns.
What is really infuriating is the idea of mandatory training. That is nothing but a literacy test for gun rights, because Miguel is right that we are the new Negores. Exercising a civil right should not require a hurdle to jump.
Who is going to train us? The same LEOs that failed in Parkland?
These people hate the NRA, so I doubt they would approve any NRA training.
What I can assure you is this, as soon as any Liberal politician passes a mandatory training requirement for gun ownership, what will happen is this:
The state will approve one training facility, it will be open one day a week, it will have one staff member, and the website to sign up for training will be worse than the one for Obamacare.
Training is, of course, a good idea. I’m just not going to allow my ability to exercise my Constitutional protected civil rights to be gatekept by an impossibly onerous training process developed by people who both know nothing about guns and hate them.
Brianna Wu has done nothing more than advocate for Jim Crow laws to be used against gun owners. Different group of people, same tactics.
