Now that I have my account suspended for the second time after having tweeted something about the NRA and its slightly fanatical followers, I am quite certain that my account is being reported as 'spam' by these fine folks in an attempt to silence opposition. I follow Twitter's Terms of Service strictly, and both times this has happened, I have first received countless unsolicited tweets from right-wing trolls.
I am not sure what to do about this at present, as Twitter does not have a way that I have found yet to contact them about such things. I felt, however, the need to let those in progressive community know that this is occurring.
The NRA and the people (using that term loosely) that support them will do almost anything to silence those that want an increase in gun safety. We cannot let issues involving public safety be determined by bullies!

'Tyranny' is when a small faction of industry-backed gun nuts dictate policy against the wishes of the majority! #uppers
10:55 PM PT: I just found it is indeed the gun nuts mass 'spam blocking' liberals on Twitter:
