The NRA Apologizes to Gun Nuts for Calling Them "Downright Weird"

Posted by Paul Constant on Wed, Jun 4, 2014 at 1:29 PM

Remember that story from Monday about the NRA asking gun nuts to not bring their assault rifles and other assorted large guns into public places? Remember when they called that action "downright weird?"

Yeah, well, Talking Points Memo says the NRA apologized to the gun nuts yesterday for calling them weird:

In an interview on Tuesday with the organization's own news site, the head of the NRA's lobbying arm blamed a staff member's "personal opinion" for the content of an unsigned statement published Friday on the organization's website, and he apologized for "any confusion" the statement may have caused.

"It's a distraction," Chris Cox, the executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, told NRA News. "There was some confusion, we apologize, again, for any confusion that that post caused."

We should've known it was too good to be true.
