Five days after a young man used three high-powered firearms to commit one of of the most heinous acts in American history, the National Rifle Association finally has something to say.
Like most of the world, the NRA is "shocked, saddened and heartbroken" by the senseless tragedies in Newtown, Connecticut.
Unlike most of the world, the powerful gun lobby group apparently has no problem with the ease in which Adam Lanza obtained these instruments of war and brought them to an elementary school.
Here is the NRA's press release:
"The 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 NRA is planning to hold a major news conference in the Washington, DC area on Friday, December 21."
Hmm. What meaningful contributions they possibly have in mind?
