Conservative CNN host S.E. Cupp on Saturday announced that she quit her membership to the National Rifle Association (NRA) following a series of mass shootings.
“For years, as you might know, I’ve gone on television and made the case for the Second Amendment — the right to bear arms,” Cupp said. “I’ve pointed out that criminals don’t follow gun laws and I’ve defended the NRA and its members, law-abiding gun owners like me who have nothing to do with mass shootings or violent gun crimes. I’ve done that because I am a gun owner and a gun rights advocate and I believed it was true.”
Cupp announced that she was no longer a member of the pro-gun rights group because “being right no longer felt righteous,” adding that “we must do something about guns.”
She spoke in favor of measures like universal background checks, banning large drums of ammunition and blocking domestic abusers or white supremacists from having access to guns.
