Actress Marg Helgenberger: ‘One can only hope’ NRA members get shot

There certainly have been a lot of calls for violence in response to the massacre of so many innocents in Newtown, Conn., last week. The name of the shooter has been known since last Friday, but with him already dead, the primary surrogate target for threats and death wishes has been the NRA.

On Friday, Author Joyce Carol Oates tweeted in response to that “NRA-sponsored massacre” that new gun control legislation might be forthcoming “if  sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves.” If that wasn’t enough to be considered an implicit wish for more shootings, “CSI” star Marg Helgenberger made sure it was, tweeting that “one can only hope.”

The NRA has just announced it will hold a press conference Friday to offer “meaningful contributions” to make sure a similar massacre never happens again. Until then, we sincerely hope individuals will think twice about what they’re contributing before calling for more violence.
