NRA sends gift basket with "consolation weapons" to relatives of Texas School Shooting

Uvalde (dpo) - A truly noble gesture in difficult times: just one week after the terrible day in which a mass shooting left 19 children and two adults dead, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has presented the relatives of the 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 Uvalde 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, more than 17,300 baskets have been sent to relatives of firearm victims.
