When George Takei told his Twitter followers that the National Rifle Association (NRA) is running a “racket” by selling guns to both murderers and safety-conscious citizens, Hollywood conservative James Woods set him straight.
On Friday, Takei tweeted that the NRA is cashing by selling guns:
“The NRA sells guns to Americans, then when those guns get used for the purpose for which they were designed, the NRA sells Americans ways to fortify against the effects of those guns. Quite a racket they have going.”
But, actor James Woods quickly responded, slamming Takei for the false claim:
“This statement is a blatant falsehood. The @NRA does not sell guns.”
As of the publication of this post, Takei has neither deleted, not corrected, his Twitter claim.
