Violence Policy Center Comments On SHOT Show Reporting By Media Matters

Blog ››› ››› ALEX LAWSON

After reading today's article in County Fair by David Holthouse about the 2011 SHOT Show, Josh Sugarmann the executive director of the Violence Policy Center sent us the following comment:

Most Americans would be shocked at what the gun industry has become. Firepower and immense ammunition capacity define today's increasingly militarized gun industry. In America today, virtually anyone with a clean record, a credit card, and grudge can set up their own army.

The Violence Policy Center is a national non-profit organization that works to stop the annual toll of death and injury from gun violence through research, advocacy, and education.
