The photo tweet posted around noon Sunday drew sharp comments, mostly from those who oppose either the NRA or others against gun violence. Conversely, it drew comments in support of those defending the right to show younger generations a way to defend themselves.
The tweet comes as gun violence is spiking around the country and while many Democratic lawmakers have tried to curb gun violence and implement stronger gun laws.A gun control advocate holds a sign made from a 'Moms Demand Action' T-shirt at a 'March For Our Lives' rally in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
