The NRA finally made a comment about the Castile's killing by police.
NRA addresses Philando Castile's shooting without using his name.
Many wondered why the National Rifle Association (NRA) was mum about Philando Castile killing by police given his right to carry a gun. They left the following very short message on their Facebook page.
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 reports from Minnesota are troubling and must be thoroughly investigated. In the meantime, it is important for the NRA not to comment while the investigation is ongoing.
Rest assured, the NRA will have more to say once all the facts are known.
It was evident that the pressure forced the action. The NRA could not ignore criticisms as follow.
