Monday afternoon, the Brady Campaign, a gun control organization, retweeted a piece from The Huffington Post entitled, “As Usual, The NRA Goes Into Hiding After A Deadly Mass Shooting.”

“The NRA’s standard response to mass shootings is to go initially silent, then come out in full force,” writes Amanda Terkel. “Anyone looking for contrition from the gun lobbying group in the wake of the Vegas tragedy will likely be sorely disappointed.”

The Brady Campaign certainly can’t be accused of going into hiding. At 9:30 a.m., while many people were just tuning in to the news and hearing about the horrific mass shooting, the Brady Campaign was already soliciting donations, as Nick Short discovered.

Indeed, clicking on the link in the second tweet below takes the reader directly to the Brady Campaign’s contribution page. That was some fast work.

It would have been a shame to let a tragedy go to waste.
