NRA Cancels Country Music Event

Is a certain pro-gun group, on the receiving end of tremendous backlash after a massacre at a Connecticut elementary school Friday morning, going into hiding? The National Rifle Association canceled a planned “Tweet & Greet” with country musician Colt Ford that was scheduled for this afternoon. “Apologies for the inconvenience, but the @ColtFord Tweet & Greet will be rescheduled. Please check back for more info!” a announcement said. The event is part of a series that features country artists “involved in causes that defend our values,” according to the NRA. The NRA has not yet commented on whether the cancellation came in light of the shooting.
