Jenelle Evans Joins NRA to Piss Off Haters

by at .

If there's anything Jenelle Evans knows, it's controversy.

So naturally, the Carolina Hurricane has decided to throw herself right into the middle of the gun control debate that's got this nation in the throes of an ideological civil war.

As you may recall, David Eason posted a photo of Jenelle shooting a gun (or pretending to shoot a gun) as part of the world's weirdest Valentine's Day tribute.

It was a case of truly horrendous timing, as the pic was posted just hours after news of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida went public.

Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2 as a result of his baffling decision to hurl homophobic slurs at those who suggested that he might want to delete the post out of respect to the victims and their families.

While she's made no real mention of her love for firearms in the previous decade that she's been famous, Jenelle has decided to double down on her gun mania, despite the obvious risks to her reputation and livelihood.

Earlier this week, Jenelle posted a video of NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch on her Facebook page.

"I joined the NRA today, hate me if you will... but I will protect my family," she captioned the video.

In the short clip, Loesch tells the camera, "I'm a mom. And just like millions of other women, that's why I own guns."

We won't bore you with the statistics about how Jenelle and Dana are far more likely to shoot a member of their immediate family than to stop an intruder, but needless to say, the post was met with a fair amount of criticism.

Jenelle has disabled comments on the post, but judging from the number of "angry face" reactions, we're guessing some fans weren't thrilled with her decision.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, David is still beating his chest and screaming about his rights, which he feels are under attack.

We guess he has a lot of time for that sort of thing now that he's unemployed.

Yesterday, Eason posted a meme that's been popular with paranoid gun owners in recent weeks.

It's a quote from George Washington that reads:

"When government takes away citizens' right to bear arms, it becomes citizens' duty to take away government's right to govern."

Fans were quick to dismantle Eason's reasoning.

"Unintelligent use of a very old quote that was not intended to be applied to justifying a lack of safety for the children of America," tweeted on follower.

"Bill of Rights was written in 1791 when your wife and daughters had no rights," remarked another.

This time, David didn't respond.

We're not sure if that's because he lacks a counter-argument or because he learned his lesson the last time.
