Nancy Sinatra Calls for NRA Members to Be Killed by Firing Squad

Singer Nancy Sinatra on Thursday called for members of the National Rifle Association to be killed by firing squad.

Sinatra—the daughter of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra—shared the sentiment on Twitter following the murder of 59 people in Las Vegas by a mass shooter over the weekend.

 

In response to criticism, Sinatra clarified that she did not mean all gun owners, just NRA members.

In 2013, the NRA estimated it had five million members. When another Twitter user asked Sinatra to explain why she thought every NRA member should be killed, Sinatra did not challenge the interpretation of her remarks.

The execution of every NRA member would produce a death toll larger than the Rwandan, Armenian, Bosnian, and Cambodian genocides.
