Excerpt:

The National Rifle Association of America has broken its silence to comment on Friday’s gun violence that ravaged a tight-knit Connecticut community, releasing a statement in which the gun-owners’ rights group said it “is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.” In the short statement posted on its blog, as well as on its Facebook page, the organization said that it “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.” The organization had largely been silent in the days after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. , allowing its Facebook and Twitter feeds to fall dormant.
