Maker of rifle used by Texas gunman draws fury for ‘incendiary’ ads

Eight days before a Texas teenager killed 19 children and two teachers at Robb Elementary School, the manufacturer of the rifle used in the massacre posted an ad on social media that featured a toddler holding a similar weapon. 

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it,” read the post from Daniel Defense on May 16, the same day the Robb Elementary shooter turned 18.

The ad represented the kind of provocative marketing that has helped the Georgia-based gun company become one the largest privately owned firearms manufacturers in the country.

  1. Yes its a provacative Ad by a firearm MFG, however gun laws are not the only answer.

    There are many guns in the streets, any average human can purchase a gun if needed with enough of that precious medium of exchange from the streets or certain localities.

    Let me reiterate from a previous posting, I do not own a weapon and have no Criminal record, however if I became a Criminal and wanted to take care of some Criminal business I can easily go to SOME streets or areas and purchase a gun, maybe not right away and it may or may not be my gun of choice but it will shoot real bullets.

    In simple terms a Criminal does not need a GUN LAW to prevent them from creating chaos or catastrophes.
