The National Rifle Association, whose mission is to protect gun rights that are now being questioned, put out a brief statement offering thoughts and prayers to U.S. Rep.

At first glance, the NRA's messaging -- or lack of it - might seem an odd move in an age where rapid-response is so often the strategy.
