Are Gun Makers Making AR-15 Assault Weapons for Kids?

Gunmakers are making AR-15 assault weapons for Children. How is this different than the tobacco Industry running their "Joe Camel" campaign directed at children? Po Murray, chairwoman of the Newtown Action Alliance, said, "The callousness of the National Shooting Sports Foundation to promote a children's version of the same type of assault rifle that was used in a horrific mass shooting of 20 first-graders and six educators in our shared community is just the latest proof that the organization, and the gun manufacturers it represents, will do anything in pursuit of continued profits." Po Murray, chairwoman of the Newtown Action Alliance Other critics of the new rifle took aim at the gun-maker, which is also selling "swag" featuring cartoon skulls with baby pacifiers—one with bows and pigtails, and another with a mohawk.
