A war of words has erupted between Democratic Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy and the National Rifle Association.
It all started earlier this week when Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin, who previously worked for Mr Malloy as his General Counsel, had stated that any mention of the NRA in state laws should be ripped out.
Mr Bronin had said so after it had been reported that Connecticut residents who wanted to get a firearm permit (the NRA has been attracting new members in huge numbers ever since the gun control protests of the past two weeks in response to the Parkland, Florida shooting) have to go through a basic safety training course and get certified.
According to Connecticut State law the NRA training is valid for such a firearms instruction.

In response to this information, Mayor Bronin claimed: "The idea that the NRA should be recognized as a voice for gun safety is ridiculous."
The NRA shot back at Mr Bronin with a statement: “No organization in the world does more to promote the safe and responsible use of firearms than the NRA.”
“The NRA’s Basics of Pistol Shooting course is the best training available for anyone seeking to carry a concealed firearm for self-protection. By eliminating the NRA training and standards for Connecticut’s permit holders, Mayor Bronin is putting politics above the safety of Connecticut citizens.”
Mr Bronin was not impressed and stated that the NRA is "an organization that opposes universal background checks despite the fact that overwhelming majority of Americans and even a large number of NRA members support universal background checks."
Afterwards, he was aided in his rebuttal to the 5 million law-abiding citizens organization by Connecticut Governor Malloy, who went even further, stating that: "They act quite frankly in some cases as a terrorist organization.”
“You want to make safer guns? We will boycott your company. That's who they are. That's what they do."

How many hospitals, schools, public buildings has the NRA blown up? Where are all of the NRA suicide bombers?
The NRA wants these shootings to stop as well.
This Governor had no idea what a terrorist is if he thinks that is the NRA, and should not be re- elected.
How can a person get to his position and bee so narrow minded and ignorant?
Calling people terrorists is so passe… So many people don't realize where this country would be right now if it wasn't for the NRA
Liberals historically have supported and/or have been the Leaders of Radical/Terrorist groups. Look no further than Black Lives Matter or ANTI-FA and a host of smaller terrorist groups the Liberals funded.
The NRA is the vital link keeping us a free country.
This idiot should be outraged at the muslims as they can really be likened to a real terror cult.
If the NRA is anything it is traitors for negotiating away rights given to American citizens by their creator and guaranteed by the 2A instead of standing up and defending any and all instances of illegal laws.
