Guns & Media Violence Clearinghouse

In lieu of the the horrifying series of attacks on our citizens by deranged individuals with assault rifles, LTV is creating a clearinghouse of articles and resources for people interested in the connection between gun manufacturers, the NRA, politics and media violence. 

Three shouts out to CT Senator Chris Murphy for his filibuster on the Senate floor, urging that esteemed body to merely CONSIDER practical gun legislation. Way to STAND UP (literally) for ACTION! Thank you Senator Murphy
  • LBN alerts reports:   AR-15 Inventor’s Family: It Was Never for Civilians:  The family of the now-deceased inventor of the AR-15 rifle spoke out Wednesday against civilian usage of the weapon. “Our father, Eugene Stoner, designed the AR-15 and subsequent M-16 as a military weapon to give our soldiers an advantage over the AK-47,” the Stoner family said. “He died long before any mass shootings occurred. But, we do think he would have been horrified and sickened as anyone, if not more by these events.” Members of the family asked for individual anonymity but said as a group that he was an “avid sportsman, hunter, and skeet shooter.” They said he neither used his creation for sport, nor kept it for personal defense. He never owned one, they said.
