Re "Gun industry steps up its outreach to youths" (Page A1, Jan. 27): It is a fact that easy access to guns leads to more gun deaths. Indoctrinating our children to guns as a fun pastime is not only dangerous but stupid. Look what happened to the little boy who learned self esteem by firing assault weapons, then killed his mother with one and had some more "fun" killing 20 little children in Sandy Hook.
The gun lobby has blood on its hands and dollar signs in its eyes. Leave our children out of your sick, grubby big business plans and stop pretending your mission is to protect the Second Amendment rights of our citizens.
