They're playing it smart in my opinion. Even a simple "Condolences to the families" would be twisted by the anti's and the press, to make it look like they were mocking the families.
Agree with archer51. Also, their statement does not suggest conceding anything on the 2A; rather, they may support stronger legislation and programs to keep firearms out of the hands of those with mental illnesses or stronger safe guarding of arms.
