Florida billboard calls the NRA a 'terrorist organization'

A political action committee has put up a new billboard in Pensacola, Florida, calling the National Rifle Association a "terrorist organization."

Mad Dog PAC, the group behind the billboard that simply reads "The NRA is a terrorist organization," is headed by Claude Taylor, a former staff member in Bill Clinton's White House.

"With the GOP majority in the House and in the Senate, the NRA makes impossible any meaningful, common-sense gun reform. That includes background checks and assault weapon bans," Taylor told the Pensacola News Journal.

Over in the upside-down known as Breitbart, the site also reported on this story and defended the NRA by arguing that mass shooters often pass background checks, so clearly nothing there's nothing to see here, folks.
Mad Dog PAC is also responsible for other memorable billboards, like the one asking Rep. Matt Gaetz how many DUIs he's had and a series of signs that went up around the country calling for Donald Trump's impeachment.

Just last week, a new digital billboard paid for by the Florida Democratic Party popped up in Orlando taking aim at Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s lack of action on gun control.
