UPDATED: As of noon eastern on Saturday, more than 24 hours after the shootings — and with the new shootings in Alabama and Las Vegas — the National Rifle Association has become heavily criticized on social media. But the organization has still yet to update its Twitter feed.

UPDATED: As of 4 p.m. eastern, there’s still nothing new on either the NRA’s Facebook or Twitter pages.
Since state police were called by a Newtown elementary school this morning a little before 10 a.m., the National Rifle Association has gone quiet on Twitter.
Here is their last tweet today, which seems to have been sent just before the news broke from Connecticut.
