Editors Note; Our NRA recently responded in two comments to the weekend's Mass Shootings and the President's comments in a press conference on Monday.
FAIRFAX, Va. – -(AmmoLand.com)- “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 is committed to the safe and lawful use of firearms by those exercising their Second Amendment freedoms. We will not participate in the politicizing of these tragedies but, as always, we will work in good faith to pursue real solutions that protect us all from people who commit these horrific acts.”
On the President's recent address to the American people:
“The NRA welcomes the President’s call to address the root causes of the horrific acts of violence that have occurred in our country.”
“It has been the NRA’s longstanding position that those who have been adjudicated as a danger to themselves or others should not have access to firearms and should be admitted for treatment.”
