"Blaze" host and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch said she was "incredibly shocked" to hear that a New York congresswoman labeled her and the NRA a "national security threat."
"I am not a domestic threat," Loesch said. "I'm a mom. I go to Walmart and I take my kids to Chick-Fil-A."
Loesch was criticized by Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) and others on the left for her recent NRA ad.
Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson stated that if he made a video like the ad he would be in jail.
This NRA ad is an open call to violence to protect white supremacy. If I made a video like this, I'd be in jail. pic.twitter.com/LD65yMUMVn

The "clinched fist" phrase was very similar to imagery from the Left of a fist with the words "Resist Trump," Loesch pointed out.

Loesch told Mark Steyn that Rice, a former Nassau County District Attorney who sits on the Homeland Security Committee, was irresponsible to try to score political points with a serious issue like national security.
"As a [former] officer of the court, she should know better," Loesch said. "Perhaps she is thinking of running for higher office."
"MS-13 is killing black and Hispanic men, and yet she has harsher words for me. She has to resign."
Rice represents the Five Towns and western part of the South Shore of Long Island, only several miles away from where MS-13 has gotten a foothold in places like Brentwood and The Islips.

"I'm just going to say it, "Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) wrote in a Friday tweet.
Loesch initially responded asking the congresswoman how much security she had.
When can I expect to be arrested, @RepKathleenRice ? Do you have enough secret security to take millions of members into custody. Honest Q.

Loesch was recently criticized by liberal journalists and activists for an NRA ad where she called on conservatives to oppose the Left with a "clinched fist of truth."
