    The profit motive hard at work - that's what this is. It's no different than the strategies pursued by the alcohol industry and the tobacco industry: move the product by building the customer base. Block anything that might get in the way of that.

    We can't eliminate guns entirely, but we can try to negate the propaganda, misinformation, outright lies and rationalizations. These people are selling a firearms fantasy. We need to inject reality into the situation.

    • Competent ownership
    • Responsible ownership
    • Controlled sales
    • Sensible limits
