NYAGV’s Leah Gunn Barrett joined other gun safety advocates in a segment on MSNBC to call on Cerberus to sell its stake in the manufacturer of the semi-automatic rifle used by Adam Lanza in last year’s Newtown massacre.
“Investing in gun manufacturers . . . only fuels our epidemic of gun violence in this country,” stated Barrett, interviewed at Monday’s rally at the headquarters of Cerberus Capital Management, the private investment firm that owns the gun manufacturer, The Freedom Group.
The segment, titled “One Nation Under a Gun,” appeared on MSNBC’s Lean Forward on December 9.
