I was distressed to see the Jewish Times give prominence to a story describing the National Rifle Association’s position on the Newtown Conn., school massacre (“At Last, NRA Speaks Out,” Dec. 28). The NRA is a trade association largely funded by the gun manufacturing industry and its sole mission is to sell more guns. You might as well check with the auto industry to explore auto safety issues or the pesticide chemical industry on ways to assure pure food production. The nation needs to take meaningful measures to make sure that the Newtown incident is not repeated. In this debate, the NRA is part of the problem, certainly not part of the solution.
