Follow the money
I am very weary of the articles on guns and gun violence because no one talks about the key issue: the dollars that companies in the United States earn by selling weapons and ammunition. [“Obama pushes gun control at Navy Yard memorial,” News, September 23.]
President Obama asked recently why other countries such as Canada and Australia were able to stop gun violence by simply passing a law.
Why, because those countries do not, by and large, sell weapons and ammunition to other countries.
The dollars that are earned from domestic and overseas sales of weapons and ammunition are at the core of the issue of gun violence that all of us wish to understand and stop.
