Did anyone see this last night on HBO?
Basically they focus on on how the gun companies are looking to expand their business and are targeting young people, "to lock them up as future gun purchasers early." (was the general point) They even showed a mini rifle that is being sold all over now a days, even in different colors (pink, blue, green, etc...). Forgot the name but it was small and meant for pre teens.
The craziest part was when they had a 13 year old actor attempting to buy a case of beer, cigs, porn mags, and lotto tickets to not avail. But he waltzes into a gun show and buys a rifle with cash no problems.
Video of 13 year old kid trying to buy Smokes, beer, porn etc... Then buys a gun.
I will admit some of it was propaganda, like the point that this could lead to the next Adam Lanza (since Lanza was trained and was very proficient with guns), and some of it was pointing out that suicide rates of kids who own guns increases substantially. The latter point is what hit home for me.
Just to be fair, they did have a guy on there who was all about giving guns to kids, and how hunting can teach you all the life lessons boasted by other sports.
