In the search warrants of the Lanza’s mother’s house, it showed a receipt for a shooting range along with NRA certificates for both Adam and Nancy Lanza. These are given out when a person takes a course in gun safety or training by an NRA-certified instructor.
The police also list in evidence a handbook published by the NRA. The book covers topics such as using a pistol safely, shooting fundamentals, cleaning, storage and transportation.
CNN host Piers Morgan who is rabidly anti-gun, took these harmless pieces of evidence to insinuate the NRA is somehow complicit in the horrific crime.
The NRA was forced to put out a statement clarifying for those in the media that people NRA certificates don’t indicate membership in the organization: “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 gun grabbers like to make the NRA out to be the big bad guy. The almost 5 million members of the organization are law-abiding people exercising their Second Amendment rights. The only bad guy in all these newly released documents was the evil killer Adam Lanza.
