Shortly after reports of a shooting — later identified as a likely murder-suicide — resulted in a campus lock down at the University of California at Los Angeles, one actor opted to post a pithy indictment of the National Rifle Association to his Twitter page.
“F— the NRA,” Wil Wheaton, known for his roles in “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “The Big Bang Theory,” wrote on Wednesday.
While his profane comment earned some praise from his anti-gun fans and followers, outraged Second Amendment supporters almost immediately peppered his feed with opposing thoughts and invective.
Fuck the NRA.

“California has almost every gun law liberals ask for,” one critic wrote. “So when there is a shooting, who do liberals blame? The NRA, of course.”
