The National Rifle Association on Thursday addressed for the first time the question of whether Adam Lanza or his mother Nancy Lanza were ever members of the gun rights group. The answer, the NRA said, is no. The lobbying organization made the statement after it was revealed that police had discovered NRA certificates among Lanza’s possessions.
In a sharply worded statement, the NRA said, “There is no record of a member relationship between Newtown killer Adam Lanza, nor between Nancy Lanza, A. Lanza or N. Lanza with the National Rifle Association. Reporting to the contrary is reckless, false and defamatory.”
The statement came in response to the release Thursday of search warrants from the home of Adam Lanza, the man responsible for the shooting deaths of 26 people in December at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
Of Course Piers Morgan shouted that the NRA was responsible for the shooting as the Lanza’s were NRA Members.
Emily Miller followed up:
Hey Piers Morgan, Adam Lanza was not a NRA member
In the search warrants of the Lanza’s mother’s house, it showed a receipt for a shooting range along with a NRA certificates for both Adam and Nancy Lanza. These are given when a person takes a course in gun safety or training by an NRA-certified instructor.
The police also list a handbook published by the NRA. The book covers topics include safely using a pistol safely, shooting fundamentals, cleaning, storage and transportation.Read more: MILLER: – Washington Times.
My Liberal Friend, Anomaly at FreakOutNation, insists that the Lanza’s were NRA Members. We pointed out, this writer has a Barack Obama bumper sticker and receives mail from Organizing for Action (even have a membership number). Certainly I am no Democrat
So, Adam Lanza’s mother, an NRA member, literally purchased a firearm possibly used to murder her.
Literature distributed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), aka: Gun Mafia, was discovered inside the Lanza’s home, police revealed Thursday in unsealed search warrant affidavits.
One of the books removed from Lanza’s home is a spiral-bound volume titled, “NRA Guide to the Basics of Pistol Shooting,” reports Yahoo News.
