NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch Dares Rep. Kathleen Rice: 'Come and Arrest Me'

NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch Dares Rep. Kathleen Rice: 'Come and Arrest Me'

"Come and arrest me", Loesch said defiantly during an appearance Friday on Fox News "Tucker Carlson Tonight".

She also tweeted the NRA and Loesch were quickly becoming a domestic security threat under President Donald Trump. "We can't ignore that", Rice tweeted.

Loesch expressed her disappointment over the tweets and said a House member was demeaning the rights under the Second Amendment.

The Congresswoman was responding to Loesch's reply to a tweet August 9, which had asked the gun rights body's spokeswoman why the NRA had remained silent when an armed black man, Philando Castile, was shot dead in Minnesota by a policeman in 2016, despite following safety rules. And yet she has harsher words for me and for NRA members than she does for MS-13. Castile's girlfriend, who broadcast the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook Live, said Castile was not going for his weapon and did not present a threat to the police officer.

"So if a white guy was shot dead during a routine stop w/ a legal gun & a joint in his auto, #NRA would stay silent?" "You're the ones lying".

"I am not a domestic threat!"

Loesch then challenged the Democrat that not only threatened her right to free speech but endangered her and her family.

"When can I expect to be arrested?"

Rice spokesman Coleman Lamb defended Rice's tweet on Friday, saying in a statement, the NRA "no longer has anything to do with protecting Second Amendment Rights", The Washington Post reported.

She also asked Rice what made her think that she and other members of the NRA were a threat to domestic security.

But when one Twitter user raised the point on Thursday, Loesch countered that Castile had not followed the letter of the law.

The NRA hadn't spoken about Castile's death for almost a year, until last month during an appearance on cable channel CNN when Loesch called the incident "a bad tragedy that could have been avoided".

Loesch, a conservative commentator and syndicated radio host, was promoted to a top national spokesperson position with the NRA earlier this year.
