Sandy Hook School Shooting

NRA "Prepared to Offer Meaningful Contributions" to Prevent Mass Shootings

Major news conference scheduled for December 21st

In its first comment following the horrific shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, the National Rifle Association today said it is "prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again."

The NRA went silent in the wake of the tragedy last Friday: The gun-rights group's Facebook page disappeared, it stopped sending out tweets, and it told reportersthat "[u]ntil the facts are thoroughly known, NRA will not have any comment."
