The spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association says death threats from “gun control advocates” have forced her to move her family from their California home.
“Spent my weekend preparing to move due to repeated threats from gun control advocates,” NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch tweeted Sunday to her 642,000 followers. The tweet included a photo of bags presumably filled with her belongings piled up on her floor.
Loesch, a frequent cable news guest, also wrote that one person threatened to shoot her after obtaining her private cellphone number, another threatened rape and another “dragged her kids into” the threats, ultimately prompting the move.

3 Another guy created a string of social media accounts, posted photos of my house, threatened to rape me to death. #MeToo— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 16, 2017
4 Another gun control advocate, after threatening to hunt me down and assault me, dragged my kids into it. #MeToo— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 16, 2017
Staunch gun control advocate Chelsea Clinton weighed in to support Loesch, calling the threats “awful and unacceptable.”
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— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) October 16, 2017
Loesch is also the host of “Dana” weekdays on BlazeTV.
The 39-year-old mother of two made waves recently after warning that any new gun control measures in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting massacre could result in an eventual total ban on guns.
“They are going to ban every single part of a rifle — period — your regular hunting rifle, until the whole thing is banned. It was made perfectly clear last week and it was made perfectly clear the week before that — no bans, no bills, period. None,” she said.
