Gun Control Group Takes Aim At Alan Jackson, Jeff Foxworthy

Kaitlan Collins White House Correspondent

No joke–a gun control group is now aiming for comedian Jeff Foxworthy and country singer Alan Jackson, saying the pair needs to be “educated” after the two were scheduled to open this year’s National Rifle Association convention in Nashville.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America posted on the group’s Facebook page saying that the NRA “pushed to arm convicted criminals, blocked federal gun violence research and board members promoted armed insurrection” and suggested that Foxworthy and Jackson need to be educated about its “dangerous and irresponsible policies.”

The link takes users to the Moms Demand Action website with the option to tweet one of several messages at the celebrities, and they range from asking if Jackson “supports NRA extremism” to telling Foxworthy that there’s nothing funny about “scaring people just to boost gun sales.”

So far neither Jackson nor Foxworthy have responded to the Michael Bloomberg-supported group. (RELATED: ‘NRA Moms’ Versus Bloomberg’s ‘Moms Demand Action)
