Oh me, oh my, whatever shall we do? In a recent court filing, the National Rifle Association claims that it's in dire financial straits, and may even be "unable to exist" if the "legal battle with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and the state's financial regulators," isn't concluded soon.
Obviously, Twitter is distraught over this horrible and completely real news. To help the NRA through these hard times, many are offering the same help the organization has given shooting victims over the years: very "sincere" thoughts and prayers.

If the past is any indicator, the NRA doesn't want, and won't accept, anything but heartfelt thoughts and prayers.
