Your recent editorial expressed outrage at the National Rifle Association's ridiculous claim that the answer to the Newtown school shooting is more guns in schools ("NRA to America: Blame yourself, not us," Dec. 21).

But what position did you expect the NRA to take? The NRA does not represent gun safety advocates, nor does it represent gun owners. It is a trade association largely funded by gun manufacturers and its sole mission is to promote gun sales and increase profits for those manufacturers.
