Remember how before the GOP tax cuts were going to kill everybody, the repeal of Obama-era net neutrality rules was going to kill everybody? And then the NRA would lobby to kill any straggling survivors with assault weapons?

NoRA and Alyssa Milano are spreading the word on Wednesday: they’ve found the hidden connection between the NRA and the death of net neutrality.

Check this out:

No, actually we didn’t know that, but it sounds pretty cool. Ars Technica reported in February:

The National Rifle Association (NRA) today gave its Charlton Heston Courage Under Fire Award to Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.

Pai was about to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland when the award presentation seemed to catch him by surprise. The award is a handmade long gun that could not be brought on stage, so it will be housed in the NRA museum until Pai can receive it.

“Ajit Pai, as you probably already know, saved the Internet,” American Conservative Union (ACU) Executive Director Dan Schneider told the audience. The ACU is the host of CPAC; Schneider made a few more remarks praising Pai before handing the award presentation over to NRA board member Carolyn Meadows.

“As soon as President Trump came into office, President Trump asked Ajit Pai to liberate the Internet and give it back to you,” Schneider added. “Ajit Pai is the most courageous, heroic person that I know.”

Activist Alyssa Milano disagrees:

Um, like the article said, we have the NRA giving him an award. Is there a problem?
