Regardless of how you feel about guns and the Second Amendment, one thing BOTH sides have come to agree on tonight: National Rifle Association Spokeswoman Dana Loesch did a phenomenal job tonight during the #StudentsStandUp Town Hall put on by CNN.
I have no love for the @NRA, but I have to respect @DLoesch for walking into a hostile crowd and fielding tough questions and hecklers better than most politicians do. I disagree with her on many issues, but I admire her professionalism. #CNNTownHall

She walked into that crowd knowing full and well that the majority of the people in the room would disagree with her but she held her own.
. @DLoesch congratulations you remained poised and represented the NRA well in a very tough situation. I think you showed empathy & tried to correct misconceptions and educate. I hope 1 or 2 heard you. ?

Absolutely agree. She did a thorough job explaining how gun owners across America feel about some of the proposed gun control laws and what issues we see with them.
Kudos to @DLoesch for her appearance tonight. She showed grace under fire and respectful restraint when fielding questions from an understandably emotional crowd. Iâ€™m proud to have her as my #NRA spokeswoman.

Dana is an example of what grace and elegance look like.
@DLoesch we do not agree on almost everything, but you showing up was amazing! I really hope that other people follow your lead. Totally professional and respectful. I know it was hard, but I hope you were able to hear what they were trying to tell you. I know I heard you.

Tonight was a step in the right direction. It was a chance for both sides to TRULY hear each other out.
@DLoesch you were great tonight in a very tough situation! Your composure and compassion were incredible! Thank you for showing up and standing up and trying to educate and inform in a civilized manner

Dana held her composure when it would have been easy to get angry.
Yes, God Bless @DLoesch for being an amazing inspiration for all of us. Little girls need to look up to her and not these fascist.

So many young girls should aspire to have the same convictions as her.
Thank you, Dana!
