This organization can't buy a break. They RESPECTFULLY remain silent immediately after Sandy Hook and were widely criticized for it, while the media and the left jumped on the tragedy to push their extremist agendas. Then when they did have something to say, something that was actionable and cut right to the core of the problem (unsecured public school buildings and imaginary "gun free zones"), they are widely criticized as insensitive and counterproductive. I'm not saying we should weep for the NRA, but I don't think the anti-gunners (media included) would have accepted any statement short of "We give up. You can have all the guns. We won't try to stop you from trampling on the Constitution."
