Gun industry ad encourages children to buy guns, shows young girl holding a target in front of her [View all]

This is an actual ad the gun industry ran in Junior Shooters magazine...



http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/27/us/selling-a-new-generation-on-guns.html?pagewanted=3&_r=0

Not only is that girl clearly too young to be purchasing a gun, but notice where she is holding the target. This is the type of "gun safety" that the NRA's allies are pushing on kids.

If this is the type of ads the "responsible gun owners run" then we really need to question how responsible they really are.
