NRA Facebook Page Disappears After School Shooting

http://j.mp/ZdoKar  (WSJ)

   "The National Rifle Association, the most powerful advocate of
    expanding gun rights and opposing gun control measures, has apparently
    suspended its Facebook page in the wake of the elementary school
    shooting in Newtown, Conn.  Shortly before the Friday shooting, the
    NRA had noted its Facebook page had received 1.7 million "likes" from
    Facebook users. Now the page can't be found. A spokesman for the group
    did not immediately respond to a request for comment."

They were probably terrified of the kinds of comments they were
getting, both pro-gun and anti-gun, in the wake of the tragedy. #gunfetishists
