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 think I will learn a lot from you Mr. Stern .. I'll keep your new awareness of tone in mind .. Lots of misinformation out there ; spewed by self righteous individuals of no name ... TY for being real . Life has many choices ... I'll continue to amend and change as life shows me the way .. For now I seek truth of agenda in our government .. And to be mistaken at the top of ones voice .. Leads us to knowing fact from fiction .. I'm sure we all have been there .. as we learn; in the search for truth ; justice and the American way . Be well Mr. Stern .
