National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch said Sunday she was preparing to move from her home "due to repeated threats from gun control advocates."
In a series of tweets, Loesch explained some of the threats she has recently experienced.
"One guy hunted down my private cellphone number, called when police were here, threatened to shoot me in my front yard," Loesch wrote.
In another post, Loesch said someone posted photos of her house, and "threatened to rape me to death."
Loesch said she's only discussed these threats "kinda vaguely," and noted there were others she "can’t discuss."
Loesch said the anti-Second Amendment jokes are told by celebrities who often have armed security guards to protect them.
"Why don't you give up the firearms that your private security is holding?" she said. "You're not being more virtuous just because you're paying someone else to carry it. You're outsourcing it because you lack the courage of your own convictions."
