“[If] evil wants to strike, it’s going to strike,” he said. “Everybody in that school was disarmed — that’s gun control. And once [Lanza] started, there was no way to stop him. And the police didn’t get there in time for all those children and adults.”
The National Rifle Association, meanwhile, has gone largely silent. The last entry on the organization’s Twitter feed was at 9:36 a.m. Friday, boasting “10 Days of NRA Giveaways — Enter today for a chance to win an auto emergency tool!”
On Dec. 13, a tweet proclaimed that the group’s Facebook page had reached 1.7 million “likes,” but the page disappeared from the online social-networking site. A spokeswoman for the group said in an email that “until the facts are thoroughly known, NRA will not have any comment.”
