National Rifle Association Comments on Weekend of Murders

FAIRFAX, Va. –  -( “Our deepest sympathies are with the families and victims of these tragedies, as well as the entire communities of El Paso and Dayton. On behalf of our millions of members, we salute the courage of the first responders and others offering their services during this time.”

“The NRA welcomes the President’s call to address the root causes of the horrific acts of violence that have occurred in our country.”

This is what the NRA should have written: A former girlfriend of Connor Betts, the man who went on a shooting rampage outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio, said a number of warning signs led her to break up with the 24-year-old. Caitlyn “Adelia” Johnson, 24, and Betts briefly dated. She told The (Toledo) Blade the two met in their psychology class at Sinclair Community College. They bonded over their struggles with mental illness; Johnson said she has depression and anxiety, and Betts told her he was bipolar and had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. That would have been a much better… Read more »

@OV, all those donations and all we get is a two paragraph milk toast defense? The NRA better be working their ass off “lobbying” senators.


@ Wild Bill; You are right about executions in Texas, the only problem is these Goody- Too-Shoes bring up they had poor childhoods, were beaten daily, no proper guidance, what a crock of B/S! When they are convicted, they should get 2 appeals, 1 to the State Supreme Court, 1 to the U S Supreme Court, those done, Grab them, slab them, EXECUTE THEM, no sitting on DEATH ROW for ETERNITY, on the TAX PAYERS DIME!!!!!!!!!!

, Had they been poor during childhood, they would be better adults for it. And beaten when necessary (which with children is probably daily), then that only means that they had parents that cared enough to give them proper guidance. LOL
No justice for the family. Libtard lawyers that could not get any job besides “Storefront Lawyers” and “Justice Projects” have seen to that.


The last sentence sums up the typical NRA approach to gun control, “… or others should not have access to firearms…”. Just who exactly are the “Or others” NRA is referring to in their statement that should not have access to firearms? The fact that the NRA is stating in print that they have had a “longstanding tradition” of advocating against some group/some individuals NOT having “access to firearms” is the main reason most gun owners will not join and/or support the NRA and LaPierre. I want an organization that will fight for my 2nd Amendment rights, not compromise them… Read more »


I’m a little disappointed in Ammoland. NRA is no longer worth quoting. Their token remarks are at best worthless, and now they come across as like some former politician trying to sound relevant. And half the column was an ad for NRA! OTOH, I’m sure NRA paid for the ad, and Ammoland is a business.

@USA, how much money is the Brady Campaign paying you to make gun owners look like certified lunatics?

Will Flatt

SHUT UP. There are MULTIPLE WITNESSES reporting there were SEVERAL SHOOTERS in El Paso!

Except that we, in Texas execute murderers. Signing up to kill people so that you can be executed Texas style is the kind of loyalty that on one has.
