Like the illustrious Wil Wheaton, Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts is a proud graduate of the School for Kneejerk Gun Grabbery.

Upon learning of today’s deadly shooting at the Berrien County Courthouse in St. Joseph, Michigan, Watts swiftly took aim at the NRA:

Nice try, Shannon dear, but no.

According to NBC News (Watts’ source for the story):

Berrien County Sheriff Paul Bailey said the confrontation took place about 2:25 p.m. ET at at the county courthouse in St. Joseph, along the shore of Lake Michigan.

The inmate was being moved from a holding cell by a bailiff and a sheriff’s deputy, Bailey said early Monday evening. A fight broke out, and the inmate was able to disarm one of the officers.

How, exactly, is the NRA responsible for that?

Not really, no. But since when has that ever stopped her?

Nearly an hour and a half after first blaming the NRA for the shooting, Watts tweeted this out to her followers:

It was not, however, accompanied by any sort of apology for wrongly impugning the NRA. Go figure.
