Nancy Sinatra – the daughter of the legendary songman who herself had “boots made for walkin’” doesn’t appear to have a brain made for thinkin’.
Sinatra’s statement on Twitter came on Tuesday and … well … she called for the murder of about five million+ Americans.
The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad. https://t.co/5ceuMvk5Tl

“The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad,” she simply wrote.
This went relatively unnoticed – because, let’s face it, she’s not her dad – until some other folks noticed.

“NRA: 5 Million Members,” Chet Cannon wrote. “@NancySinatra feels they should be murdered by firing squad, but THEY are the “murderous” ones. Okay.”

“Hi @NancySinatra , before u have millions of innocents killed, can you explain to these people why they should die?” Dana Loesch asked.
TownHall writer Kurt Schlichter had his own pithy quip:

“I guess her boots are made for killing… People like me, because we disagree politically,” he wrote.
The left’s relentless attack on the NRA and gun owners has been unrelenting since the horrific mass killing by a deranged madman in Las Vegas on Sunday.
It’s not yet clear how the shooter, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, acquired his guns or if gun control measures could have prevented him from obtaining them, but leading Democrats are already demanding stricter gun control legislation.
Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy issued a statement Monday morning claiming that “the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference.” Murphy demanded Congress “get off its ass and do something” following the shooting, The Daily Caller reports.
“Tragedies like Las Vegas have happened too many times,” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote on Twitter. “We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence. We need it NOW.”
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton attacked the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.

“Our grief isn’t enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again,” she wrote. (Quite the case of Orwellian doublespeak there).
Celebrities like Sinatra are getting in on the action.
Lady Gaga urged people to refer to the shooting as “terrorism.” She tweeted, “This is terrorism plain and simple. Terror bares no race, gender or religion. Democrats & Republicans please unite now #guncontrol.”

Two law enforcement sources told CBS News that there does not appear to be a connection to terrorism at this time, and FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse confirmed at a news conference Monday that the gunman had no known connection to any international terrorist group.
Ariana Grande made similar comments, labeling the shooting “terrorism” and calling for gun control. It has been more than four months since a suicide bomber killed 22 people at her May 22 concert at Manchester Arena.
My heart is breaking for Las Vegas. We need love, unity, peace, gun control & for people to look at this & call this what it is = terrorism.
