NRA Breaks Silence, Promises ‘Meaningful Contributions’

Press conference scheduled for Mayan end-of-the-world day

The National Rifle Association went into complete lockdown after the Newtown massacre, and even shut down their Facebook page, but four days later they’ve emerged from the bunker: NRA Promises ‘Meaningful’ Contributions.

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.

I feel pretty safe predicting that the NRA’s “meaningful contributions” are going to involve MOAR GUNZ.
