The NRA Is Back On Facebook And Twitter After Its Social Media Blackout

• Business Insider
 The pro-gun organization broke its media silence Tuesday with a statement that it then also posted on its Facebook wall. In 14 hours, the post has been liked 26K times and commented on 4.6K times.

The group will also hold a press conference on Friday, it said.

Critics and Facebook fans alike noticed the group's disappearance from Facebook the day of the Newtown shooting. A commenter on the US Carry pro-gun bulletin board questioned if the social media site had taken the page down: "I 'Liked' the NRA Facebook page the other day and then shared their photo of having over 1.7 million Facebook followers. Their Facebook page is gone and the photo I shared is gone as well! Did Facebook delete them?"

That is because they needed to regroup with their CONgressmen and start writing the 'Assault Weapons Ban 2' soon to be enacted for you gun owners---what the NRA always does.   "It would have been twice as bad if we didn't write the legislation."
