You are probably ignorant. This may be a weekly posting? You can’t put blame on the NRA for asking people what they plan to do for the weekend.

Yep. Horrible mass shooting, let’s say, “Good morning, shooters!” 

Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that it was an automated tweet. Fine. Great. I screencapped that at 12:09 PM EST. It was posted at 7:20 AM. You can’t tell me no one at the NRA is monitoring their official feeds and no one hadn’t heard about the worst mass shooting in U.S. history

Second, why not issue an apology with that explanation (or any explanation) instead of deleting the feed? They deleted their tweet first, their #FF second, then the feed. 

I’m not blaming them for asking people what they’re doing. I’m criticizing them for being terrible at timing. 

So nope. You’re probably ignorant.
