Actor Alec Baldwin took a swipe at National Rifle Association (NRA) spokeswoman Dana Loesch, telling her the Second Amendment is not “a moral credit card.” 
 
“I see that @DLoesch wants to ‘take back the truth,’” Baldwin tweeted Monday. “And she doesn’t care how many dead bodies she has to step over in that pursuit. The Second Amendment is not a moral credit card that buys you all the guns you want. That law needs to be rethought.” 
 
 
Baldwin’s tweet came after NRA TV released a trailer for Loesch’s new show on Sunday night, before the Academy Awards.

“We've had enough of the lies, the sanctimony, the arrogance, the hatred, the pettiness, the fake news. ... We are done with your agenda to undermine voters' will and individual liberty in America,” Loesch says.
