Statement by NRA Concerning Tucson Tragedy

The National Rifle Association, the nation’s largest pro-gun lobbying group, posted the following statement [13] on its Web site: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this senseless tragedy, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords, and their families during this difficult time. We join the rest of the country in praying for the quick recovery of those injured."
Asked whether the repeal of gun restrictions played a role in the shooting, the group’s spokesman told Politico [14]: “Anything other than prayers for the victims and their families at this time would be inappropriate.”
