The National Rifle Association says it’s official Tweet that was posted after the tragic shootings in Aurora, Colorado, was done while “unaware of events in Colorado”.
Which begs the question: are they unaware that among the world’s 23 wealthiest countries 80% of all gun deaths happen in the U.S.? Are they unaware that among those 23 wealthiest nations 87% of all shooting deaths of people under the age of 18 happen in the U.S.? Are they unaware of the fact that approximately 30,000 people die by gunshot in the U.S. each year? Are they unaware of the fact that a dozen guns are sold legally in the U.S. every minute? Are they unaware there are over 300 million guns in public hands in the U.S., most of which are in the hands of a small minority of gun owners?
They must be unaware, or simply uncaring, if anyone at the NRA can happily tweet “Good morning, shooters”.
