The front page is accompanied by an article that states: "His killing machine of choice was a mass murderer’s best friend — and his enabler a gun lobby that has long opposed efforts to keep assault weapons out of the hands of bloodthirsty maniacs."

This is false. The NRA has not tried to stop weapons from getting in the hands of bloodthirsty terrorist murderers. It has battled attempts to keep firearms from law-abiding citizens.

“It was designed for the United States military to do to enemies of war exactly what it did this morning: kill mass numbers of people with maximum efficiency and ease,” lawyer Josh Koskoff, who’s representing Newtown families in their lawsuit against the gun industry, said Sunday.
