The National Rifle Association released it's first statement since the shootings in Newtown, CT on Tuesday. The statement reads as follows:
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.
Details will be released to the media at the appropriate time.
