Oh hey, look the NRA has emerged to make a cryptic statement:
The nation's largest gun owners' organization has issued its first remarks since last week's elementary school shooting, saying it is "heartbroken" by the "horrific and senseless murders" and prepared to offer "meaningful contributions" to prevent a repeat. It says it plans a press conference on Friday.Oh, I'm sure that as a news dump on the last Friday before Christmas it will be real constructive. Feel free to make your predictions below, but I imagine it will go something like this:
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) became the latest anti-gun control figure to embrace the notion that the best way to protect against future tragedies like Newtown, Connecticut, is to put more guns in public schools.More guns...what could possibly go wrong?
