The National Rifle Association continues to embarrass itself.

The NRA targeted a pair of New York City lawmakers with a threatening graphic for their support of legislation that would limit the sale of ammunition — just days ahead of the five-year anniversary of the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

State Sen. Roxanne Persaud and Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon, both Democrats from Brooklyn, announced legislation two weeks ago that would strictly limit the amount of bullets any gun owner could buy over a 90-day period and prohibit gun dealers from selling ammunition to anyone prohibited from owning a firearm.

In response, the NRA publication “America’s 1st Freedom” tweeted an image Monday that showed photos of each lawmaker’s face taped to a board, as if for target practice, and surrounded by several bullets, reported the New York Daily News.
