The NRA is live-streaming their annual conference today, which will certainly yield lots of hate toward Hillary Clinton and her initiatives to stop toddlers from being shot or shooting their parents. (Caution! Video is NSFW)

Media Matters has helpfully compiled a video of highlights illustrating the glowing terms in which they speak of Hillary Clinton.

The NRA began its opposition to Clinton in earnest during its 2015 meeting with a gender-based attack. Whileaddressing the NRA’s members, LaPierre said of the prospect of electing Clinton after President Obama’s term, “I have to tell you, eight years of one demographically symbolic president is enough.” During that year's leadership forum, LaPierre claimed that Clinton “will bring a permanent darkness of deceit and despair” to America.

While LaPierre supplies many of the NRA’s paranoid claims about Clinton and gun confiscation, the organization’s best-known leadership figure, board member Ted Nugent, offers disgusting attacks. Nugent hascalled Clinton a “toxic cunt,” a “two-bit whore,” and a “worthless bitch,” among other insults.

Before the end of the day, I'm sure there will be enough material for several more like this one.

They're also expected to endorse Donald Trump, of course.

As a pro forma nod toward decency, here's their one tweet without nasty epithets:

To which she replies...
