NRA to Make Announcement Friday; What Do You Want to Hear From Them?

Fairfax-headquartered group issues statement about preventing future tragedies after shooting in Connecticut.

After days of silence, the National Rifle Association, headquartered in Fairfax, has released a statement on the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT, saying it will make "meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again" and pledged to make an announcement on Friday.

In the release, the organization begins to explain its silence, saying: "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 organization announced it will hold a press conference Friday in Washington, D.C.

More details on Friday's press conference will be released when timing is deemed "appropriate," according to the statement.

In the interim, we want to know, what do you hope the NRA does in response to the Newtown tragedy?

The Marines took Iwo Jima with the 8 round M1 Garand rifle as did the soldiers in Europe. Why does the NRA feel that a 30 round clip and a assault rifle is OK. A former Marine

Maybe they think some of those animals they supposedly hunt for are on bath salts.
