A Democratic congresswoman from New York on Thursday night accused the National Rifle Association and its spokeswoman of being "domestic threats" to the security of the United States.

Rep. Kathleen Rice took aim at the NRA and syndicated talk radio host Dana Loesch on Twitter, writing that "we can't ignore" the threats they pose under President Donald Trump.

Rice immediately got pushback from Loesch.

NRA members and their supporters also did not appreciate being equated with terrorists.
