The NRA sure had no problem running their mouths, begging for donations, and politicizing the Aurora shooting.

Usually it has no problems expressing its condolonces - which I do not doubt are always genuine.
but the enormity of the Sandyhook shooting tragedy seems to be a bit much even for them as some normally staunch "gun supporters" are beginining to waver in their support for "guns at any cost" (see the links for a couple of examples, and yes I know those are not "proper" terms that is why I put them in quotes)

I am a member also, 6 years. We both know the pros and cons to this stale debate. I still have my NRA stickers on my car, and I am proud to have them. There is nothing wrong with this organization. Period.

In this post you have admitted that you feel the NRA is responsible for the killings? Or is that not how you feel?
What does the NRA have to regret here? Not pressing hard enough for people to be allowed to carry guns in schools?

And? What do you want or expect them to say? Would what they say help anyone through this tragedy?
I fail to see how the failure of the National Rifle Association to make a statement is news or relavent.
Has the ACLU made a statement considering this event? Should politico be writing stories about them as well?
Such a lame attempt to make this about something it's not. Utterly ridiculous.
The media doesn't understand how a organization doesn't want to turn this into something about themselves? How fitting. So tired of it all.edit on 12/17/2012 by sputniksteve because: (no reason given)
@BayAreaHouston is not just any random Twitter user. He is John Cobarruvias, a Democratic Party precinct chair in Houston, according to Houston blog Big Jolly Politics. (Update: He is also member of the State Democratic Executive committee.) After calling for shooting NRA members “and everyone who defends them,” Cobarruvias turned around and called the target of his incitement to violence a “domestic terrorist organization.” Self-aware much?
