National Rifle Association sends ill-timed tweet after Colorado shooting
"Good morning, shooters. Happy Friday!" wrote one of the group's accounts
Tweet was widely criticized as insensitive given the overnight shooting that killed 12
“Good morning, shooters. Happy Friday! Weekend plans?”
That tweet was posted at 9:20 a.m. ET on Friday by an account for “American Rifleman,” the official NRA journal. The group, which advocates for gun owners, appeared to have been pulled down from the Internet as of about 12:30 p.m. ET Friday.
