NYT Pro-Gun Mom’s Op-Ed Leads to Twitter Fight Over ‘White Privilege’

Even though it’s almost three weeks since the shooting on Valentine’s Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, liberals and conservatives continue to clash over issues regarding gun control.

One of the latest skirmishes involves conservative Jewish columnist Bethany Mandel and Shannon Watts, a founder of Moms Demand Action, a liberal group associated with the Michael Bloomberg-bankrolled gun-control advocacy group Everytown.

While Mandel discussed her experience being threatened and buying a gun to protect her family, Watts responded by calling her out on Twitter for her use of white “privilege.”
