National Rifle Association shuts down Facebook page

On Saturday, one
day after the unthinkable shootings at a Newtown, Conn. elementary
school, the NRA deactivated its Facebook
page after celebrating getting to 1.7 million fans on the social site earlier in the week.

While the group has not commented since Friday’s tragedy, it appears to
have decided to take its brand out of the social media
picture in the wake of a mass-shooting news event. 
The NRA’s chief Twitter account, which
has doubled in followers to 63,000 since the Aurora shootings, has been
silent since tweeting out a holidays giveaway contest early Friday.
