The NRA Expressed 'Deepest Sympathies' Weeks After Lobbying For Looser Gun Laws

In the wake of two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, the National Rifle Association expressed their sympathies.

In a statement, the NRA noted that it "will not participate in the politicizing of these tragedies." Meanwhile, in June the NRA managed to pressure Texas into loosening existing gun laws.
