After hiding from America and their own supporters after Friday’s Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, the NRA has returned to Facebook and Twitter, and gun nuts are rejoicing.

NRA head Wayne LaPierre released this statement:

The National Rifle Association of America is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters – and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown.

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 NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again.

The NRA is planning to hold a major news conference in the Washington, DC area on Friday, December 21.

Those horrific and senseless murders included 20 boys and girls, all aged six or seven, and six adults who worked at the school.

On Facebook, where the NRA has 1,704,996 “likes,” the gun nuts offered their undying support.

Here’s a sample:

Welcome back NRA !!!!   Proud member since 1994.   I hope you lead the fight to finally end these so-called "GUN FREE ZONES" and shed the light on the real problem with these mass shootings.   Please stand strong and do not give in to these misinformed liberals that want to turn our great country into a socialist police state.Jerry Blatnik Jr.
Dont ever give in to these commies trying to take away our rights. You are our firewall from tyranny .Mike Bonefede
We need you now more than ever. Libtards are ruling the day without your voice.  It’s time to hold the line.Scott Lohr
What a wonderful Christmas gift…sign someone you love up for a membership to the NRA. It’s time for fight and not flight!!!Pastor-Donald Sadler
In all honesty folks how sad is it that there is a record number of firearm owners in the us and only a small amount of nra members? Only a few cant carry the rest of the nation on their backs.Nick Mull

Our guns are gone! They called us racist, narrow minded, and ignorrant…they said that Obama would never make a move on our gun rights…well, less than two months after being ellected to a second term Obama has jumped onboard with Fienstein and the gun grabbers…it wont be long now.Michael Byrd
I am NOT the NRA. The NRA is me. The NRA is not a Lobby group. It’s my voice only amplified. Like all of us, I too am saddened at the loss of life. Unfortunately, the politicians want to take the easy route and attack the gun rather than the criminal. The coming weeks will be the "right’ time to discuss the failures of both the mental health obligations and the gun free zones. Unfortunately, no one in Congress has the where-with-all to discuss either.Peter Weber
From my cold dead hands!Dick Lange
NRA is True FREEDOM and LIBERTY !!! ;)Scott Thomas
