Default NRA robocalls Newtown, CT

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Some residents of the Connecticut community devastated by December's school shooting said they're outraged over robocalls they've received from the National Rifle Association only three months after a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Newtown residents said the automated calls from the NRA began last week and urge people to tell their state legislators to oppose gun control proposals. Some also said they received postcards from the NRA supporting gun owners' rights.

"It's ridiculous and insensitive," Newtown resident Dan O'Donnell told Hartford-area NBC affiliate WVIT-TV, one of several media organizations to report about the robocalls. "I can't believe an organization would be so focused on the rights of gun owners with no consideration for the losses this town suffered."

I guess I can see both sides of the story but maybe the place wasn't exactly the right time for the NRA to promote their agenda.

Unless the NRA were not the ones actually doing it... Making calls and sending out false cards sounds like something a very rich mayor may try to make his opponents look bad.... just saying
