NRA TV Host Jokes That North Korea Should Bomb California Instead Of Guam

By Collin Gossel

A National Rifle Association member became the center of a controversy this past Friday, August 11th, when he he tweeted his suggestion that North Korea should bomb often liberal-leaning California instead of U.S. territory Guam. His name is Grant Stinchfield, a Dallas-based host on NRA TV. His tweet read:

Let's send a note to North Korea that Sacramento changed its name to Guam!

The New York Daily News notes that Stinchfield may have been trying to indicate that "destroying the capital of California, a state with strict gun laws, would somehow make things better for gun owners."
