USA #GunControl #MassMurder #ThisAgain? To be clear: "the NRA" as an institution does not (publicly) blame the victims. One of their Board Member does, though. QUOTE: Board member Charles Cotton [...] posted a comment online [late on Thursday] blaming the pastor killed in the South Carolina shooting, Clementa Pinckney, for the death of his eight congregants. Cotton, who did not return a message left at his Houston-area law firm, pointed out on a Texas gun forum that Pinckney was a state senator who had voted against a law allowing gun owners to carry concealed weapons without permits. “Eight of his church members who might be alive if he had expressly allowed members to carry handguns in church are dead,” Cotton wrote. “Innocent people died because of his position on a political issue.” “Individual board members do not speak for the NRA,” [official NRA spokesperson] Baker said. The remark has since been deleted. /QUOTE
