NRA's Facebook Page Disappeared Right After The Newtown Massacre

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by muriel_volestrangler (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Business Insider

A day after the killings, however, the NRA's Facebook went missing in action. It cannot be found on the social network. The disappearance was first noted on the USA Carry pro-gun bulletin board.

The move occurred at the same time as the NRA's Twitter stream went silent -- and suffered a barrage of whithering tweets from critics.

2. If this is the case, what a bunch of pansies

they KNOW they are implicated in all of these gun-related tragedies.
Why don't they 'man up' and be a part of the solution.
Oh, that's right, then their gun dealer buddies wouldn't have such plump bottom lines.

Someone knew what was coming (and they were right, too).

4. The marketers of "Manliness" are scared to death of words.

Even the Domino's guy had the balls to take the heat on FB.

10. paranoid folks seem to think

Facebook intentionally removed it. hence this typical reply


commie bastards! put it back!


zzzz what comes around goes around. should I assume if Facebook is communist the poster must be communist? no? very confusing response ie where is his brain. albeit my brain isn't all that great after the horror but that one is like old man shouts at cloud..

12. Cowardly Bassturds


NRA is all sh!t. They attack and eat their own as witnessed by the Jim Zumbo situation a few years ago. NRA should be put out of business. And yes, I'm a gun owner.

15. Locking - not Latest Breaking News

Business Insider got to this fairly late - DU beat them by a day (see http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021985322 ), and this thread was started a day after BI posted their article, which is outside the 12 hours LBN limit.
