Newtown’s fury at pro-gun phone calls from the NRA following Sandy Hook massacre


Residents of Newtown, the quiet Connecticut community rocked by the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December, have expressed outrage after receiving automated phone messages from America’s leading pro-gun group, the National Rifle Association, imploring them to lobby local lawmakers against supporting new gun control legislation.

“I can’t believe an organisation would be so focused on the rights of gun owners with no consideration for the losses this town suffered,” local resident Dan O’Donnell told the TV station NBC Connecticut.
