Dana Loesch: Threats From Gun Control Advocates Forcing Me to Move
Radio host and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch said she's had to pack up her belongings in garbage bags and leave her home over threats from gun control advocates and other opponents.
Loesch said she and her family, including her young children, have received threats over her role in the National Rifle Association in the wake of the Las Vegas massacre.
She told Martha MacCallum it's been difficult to sell her home "conventionally" - through open houses and a realtor - due to the vile threats.
But, she praised the FBI and local law enforcement for their help during the situation.
She said she doesn't hate her opponents and knows that not all gun control advocates are guilty of such threatening acts.
Loesch said that activist Chelsea Clinton backed her up on Twitter, saying that the threats are "awful and unacceptable" and that peaceful advocates must condemn them.
Dana - this is all awful & unacceptable. Those of us who disagree with you the strongest have a particular responsible to strongly condemn. https://t.co/jJXk9VB54p

"I just want someone to have that choice [to carry a weapon]," Loesch said, adding that she was unnerved when people posted photos of her house and threatened her children.
"I'll never stand down," she said.
