After a full day of this kind of abuse, Jay had enough and backed out.
All day long, Jay Leno has been bullied by the gun control lobby. For simply appearing at the NSSF’s annual SHOT Show industry trade show, Shannon Watts (paid representative of Michael Bloomberg) has used every dirty trick in the book to make it seem like Jay is personally responsible for slaughtering children. Nevermind that the NSSF actually supported some gun control measures or that they have a program all about gun safety, all Shannon needed was to imply that Jay was being paid by the big bad “gun lobby” and her minions did the rest. Twitchy has been following the Twitter-based bullying all day long, and it looks like it worked.
Here are a couple selected tweets for your reading pleasure:
