NRA Breaks Silence on Philando Castile Death — After Nudge From TheWrap

Two days after the death of Philando Castile, the National Rifle Association addressed the shooting on Friday, following some prodding from TheWrap over the group’s stance on the killing by police of the reportedly legally-armed Minnesotan.

The gun-rights organization’s statement came via its Twitter account, little more than an hour after we left an unreturned voicemail for an NRA spokesman.
“As the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights organization, the NRA proudly supports the right of law-abiding Americans to carry firearms for defense of themselves and others regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation,” the statement reads. “The reports from Minnesota are troubling and must be thoroughly investigated.”


Rest assured, the NRA will have more to say once all the facts are known,” the group added.

A mushy statement perhaps, but it’s more than the group’s Twitter feed has had to say on the topic since the shooting took place on Wednesday.

1. Has anyone asked spokesperson and

long time Board of Directors member Ted Nugent for their real opinion yet?
