NRA Promises 'Meaningful Contributions' to End Gun Violence in First Statement Since Newtown Shooting

The National Rifle Association released its first statement since the Newtown school shooting:

NraThe National Rifle Association of America is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters – and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown.

Out of respect for the families, and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for mourning, prayer and a full investigation of the facts before commenting.

The NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.

The group says it will be holding a press conference on December 21.

  1. Please. If the NRA had its way you swing by your local gun store and pick up a bazooka and some hand grenades, no questions asked.

    Gun sales have spiked in the aftermath of the Newtown shooting. Some of it may be people who are getting a gun for the first time ever, but I'd wager my life that most of it is jerkwads adding to their arsenal.

  2. I WOULD FAVOR SOME NEW , WELL THOUGHT GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION. I AM NOT IN FAVOR OF THESE LAWS BEING A FIRST STEP TOWARD INFRINGING ON OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS. I AM NOT IF FAVOR OF ANY LEGISLATION THAT IS DONE SO WE CAN SAY WE DID SOMETHING AND IN ACTUALITY MAKES US NO SAFER.

  3. I realize a lot of people are very upset over everything that has happen, my heart is sadden tremendously. But those of you that attack the NRA are stupid, anger grows anger. We need to work together on this and figure something out. What really amazes me is that everyone wants to ignore the real problem. Society needs to step back and look, and wonder why life is so meaningless to more and more people.
