‘Kill the NRA’ Message Appears On Billboard On Interstate 65 In Kentucky

A billboard on Interstate 65 in Louisville called out the National Rifle Association following the recent school shootings in Kentucky and Florida.

The sign on I-65 northbound near the Fern Valley Road exit read “Kill the NRA,” and was in response to last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead has renewed outrage and debate over the nation’s gun laws.

The NRA has taking heat for opposing tighter regulations on firearms.

Photos of the billboard, which is owned by Outfront Media, circulated widely on social media Monday. David Watkins, a spokesman for the company, said Tuesday that the vandalism on the Outfront property had been “removed.”

The sign was tagged with “Resist 45,” a group that opposed President Donald Trump.

“Resist 45” also popped up on several billboards across Louisville last year, including on a Louisville Soccer board at the University of Louisville and along Interstate 65.

A billboard vandalized in October read “Grab life by the pussy” and featured a small “Resist 45” tag in the corner. The message was likely a reference to a campaign scandal in which Trump was recorded talking with Access Hollywood host Billy Bush about women.

“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful (women) — I just start kissing them,” Trump said. “It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything … Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

The NRA’s official Facebook page shared the sign on Monday telling gun owners that it’s “a wakeup call. They’re coming after us.”

Indeed, NRA. Young people are coming for you.
