Killing profits

Dear Editor,

It's no coincidence that the latest school shooting occurred in Florida, a firearm-friendly NRA fiefdom sometimes called the "Gun-Shine State."

Where else could a troubled, gun-obsessed teenager, expelled from high school for attacking another student buy an AR-15 assault rifle as easily as he could buy a six-pack of beer?

The AR-15 is a killing machine. It's a civilian version of the military's M-16 rifle that I fired while serving in the Air Force (1964-68). It's a combat weapon that should not be owned by civilians, but is thanks to the NRA.

Adam Lanza slaughtered 26 people at Sandy Hook in 2012 with An AR-15 Bushmaster. The maker of that weapon, Remington Outdoors, recently filed for bankruptcy.

You can help put other merchants of mass murder on the same path by demanding that pension funds, college endowments and other institutional investors sell their stocks in firearms manufacturers.

Don't turn dollars into death. No one should profit from blood money.
