The National Rifle Association sent out a letter asking for money only three days after the bloody mass murder in Aurora, Colorado, reportsBusinessweek.com.
The fundraising letter read in part: “The future of your Second Amendment rights will be at stake. And nothing less than the future of our country and our freedom will be at stake.”
The letter, dated July 23, was sent to NRA supporters including to people in Colorado. The letter makes no mention of the deaths on July 20 in Aurora, Colorado.
The four-page letter from NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre (pictured) was sent to raise money to defeat President Barack Obama and elect gun-rights supporters in Congress.
The Denver-based Colorado Ceasefire Capitol Fund, called the letter “very insensitive” and added “couldn’t they have waited at least a week, especially here? People’s souls are really wounded.”
