small-arms trade

Depressingly we learn that one of America’s largest purveyors of firearms who tragically lost dozens of patrons and two store managers in a spree of massacres over the past week, remaining steadfast in its retail commitment to keep guns prominently and publicly available, has pledged make one reform in the wake of all the violence.
Unhelpfully parroting Trump’s false-narrative that mental illness or manipulative journalism is behind mass-shootings, the ubiquitous chain will take measures to take down signage and displays that promote video games that model violent and aggressive behaviour—no mention of its hunting assortment. Anyone who patronises these stores is morally bankrupt.
