Anti-Gun Violence Groups Cite “Out of Control” Gun Industry in CO


More than 30 organizations that fight gun violence blamed the mass theater shooting in Colorado on “an out-of-control, militarized gun industry that prides itself on selling increasingly lethal products to virtually anyone with little concern for the inevitable tragedies that result.”

Calling for action on the gun issue by policymakers, the groups said that, “In America today–where virtually anyone with a credit card and a grudge can outfit their own personal army–mass shootings are as predictable as they are tragic.” The groups accused the National Rifle Association and its “gun industry partners” with remaining mute “when families and communities suffer the consequences. And when attention fades, they’ll once again resume their lethal trade, unless we stand together as Americans to stop them.”
