State Rifle Association Takes Heat For Remarks Critical Of Newtown Parents


The Illinois State Rifle Association has apologized for comments that some saw as insensitive to the parents of the young victims of the Newtown school massacre. 

 

A message from the pro-gun group stated, quote, “gun owners don’t put much credence in what the Newtown parents have to say.  After all, having a child murdered doesn't automatically make one an expert in violent crime.” 

 

The organization has now offered an apology, posted on the Capitol Fax website, in which it expresses regret that some construed the remarks as being insensitive to the families of violent crime victims.
