Re "Boy, 5, accidentally shoots sister, 2, in Kentucky" (Page A9, May 2): Only in the United States do we have parents and gun manufacturers thinking it okay to market, sell or purchase firearms for preschoolers. Let's color their first gun. A "cricket" or "chipmunk" kid's rifle can be purchased in several colors to match their Barbie or Ken dolls.

This is sick! You can't advertise cigarettes to kids, but you can market firearms.
