Ever since the horrible and tragic Sandy Hook school shootings in Connecticut the National Rifle Association —America’s most influential force for putting guns in the hands of everyone—went  silent going even as far to remove its Facebook page.

Now in the shootings aftermath it has released its first statement on the Sandy Hook incident:

National Rifle Association of America is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters – and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown.

Out of respect for the families, and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for mourning, prayer and a full investigation of the facts before commenting.

The NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.

The NRA is planning to hold a major news conference in the Washington, DC area on Friday, December 21.

Expect it to be a completely empty PR exercise. The NRA has made it abundantly clear that they only believe in the maximalist position; anything less is a world-ending infringement of individual rights as handed down by God.

By the way Friday 12.21.2012 is the predicted Mayan Apocalypse.

Sure NRA. Wait until the end of the world to announce something meaningful.

NRA Spokes person: “We have come to the realization that our efforts these past decades have been … OOPS … end of the world, got to go”
