Grant Stinchfield, who works for NRATV.com and a Dallas radio station, says he is sorry for a tweet in which he wrote,"Let's send a note to North Korea that Sacramento changed its name to Guam!"

Stinchfield has been taking heat for the twitter post that was quickly deleted and came after North Korea threatened fire missiles at the U-S.  Among the hundreds of responses, one Tweeter said, quote, "To all NRA members in Sacramento: Go die in a nuclear fire!  That is basically what you just said."

Stinchfield told the Daily News, "It was meant as a joke and I regret it."  Reportedly he also said via phone, "What’s going on with North Korea is no laughing matter."

The NRA did not immediately responded to media requests for comment on Stinchfield's tweet.  The organization has for some time been critical of California's strict gun laws, which were created by the Legislature and signed into law by the governor at the State Capitol in Sacramento.
