To the Editor:
Re “Selling a New Generation on Guns” (“Bearing Arms” series, front page, Jan. 27):
It comes as no surprise that the gun industry, like Big Tobacco at one time, deliberately targets children in order to groom a new generation of consumers.
As the reporting makes abundantly clear, the National Rifle Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation are trade organizations whose only mission is to increase sales. Behind their meretricious arguments that firearm use somehow develops “life skills” or teaches responsibility is the real bottom line: profits.
