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?

I hope they back everyone up in saying we have the right to bear arms! If these teachers had been armed maybe most of these things wouldn't happen in schools! No one should be aloud to take away our freedom n change out amandments! Obama is trying to come in and change it all an we need to fight back for us citizens and our rights!
