NRA sends gift basket with "consolation weapons" to relatives of Las Vegas Strip shooting

Las Vegas (dpo) - A truly noble gesture in difficult times: one week after a gunman opened fire on a large crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, the National Rifle Association (NRA) have presented the relatives of the ten casualties with a small gift. As a consolation for their loss, the families of each victim received a gift basket with a varied mixture of local weapon specialities.

The consolation weapons are pleasantly arranged; the bottom space of the basket is filled with ammunition. There is a card attached saying "this basket intends to be a little help for the relatives of the tragedy in Las Vegas to which neither the lax national weapons legislation nor the NRA have contributed at all. Heartfelt condolences."
According to a spokesperson of the gun lobby, the NRA gift baskets are very popular. Just this year, almost 12,000 baskets have been sent to relatives of firearm victims.
