The National Rifle Association seems to have broken its silence about the horror that took place on Friday in Newtown, Connecticut. And it just proved that it has its head buried several miles up its ass.
Leslie Mayes, a producer in the Washington Bureau for Time Warner Cable's news channels (NY1, YNN and News 14 Carolina), tweeted this statement from the NRA earlier this afternoon:
Excuse me? Twenty kids just got shot to pieces with an assault rifle. What "facts" are Wayne LaPierre and company waiting for? After this, I'm convinced more than ever--all gun owners who support responsible regulations on guns should walk out on the NRA. That's the only way to defang LaPierre and his crew.
I mentioned this in an update to my earlier diary, but this is so outrageously dense it merited a post of its own.
