The NRA is incapable of shame.
Connecticut senators blast NRA robocalls to Newtown residents
By Justin Sink
Connecticut's U.S. senators on Tuesday admonished the National Rifle Association for robocalls to residents of Newtown, Conn., the site of last year's deadly mass shooting that left 20 schoolchildren and six educators dead.
"With these robocalls, the NRA has stooped to a new low in the debate over how to best protect our kids and our communities," Sens. Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, both Democrats, wrote in a letter to NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre. "We call on you to immediately stop calling the families and friends of the victims in Newtown."
The robocalls, one of which was obtained by The Huffington Post, urge Newtown residents to lobby their state representatives against an effort to pass stricter gun controls in the state. Proposals there include a beefed-up assault weapons ban and a limit on magazine size.
