A billboard put up by a gun store owner in Murphy, North Carolina, has become the center of attention for allegedly targeting Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and others.
It would be a normal billboard that has pictures of Reps. Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley unless the word “Cometh” replaced by a “sensitive” phase.
It reads “The Four Horsemen are idiots. Signed, the Deplorables.”
The owner of the gun store said he put up his sign basically to show his support for President Trump, but The National Coalition Against Gun Violence showed its opposing views.
“Well, they’re calling us racist. I mean I don’t care if it was four white women, four white guys that have their view, they’ll be on the billboard,” the shop owner said after the organization said the billboard has violent anti-government speech.
As evident as it is, Tlaib replied on Twitter, asking how is this not inciting gun violence and whether the FBI will investigate the incident.
How the hell is this not inciting violence? https://t.co/rgdDloiePq

The advertising company that owns the billboard posted on Facebook that it’s taking the ad down but when or where it actually happens is unclear.
