Natalie Foster - "Profit"
Natalie Foster dissects the "greedy gun company" myth in her latest NRA News Commentary video. She discusses how uninformed people might be taken in by the gun prohibitionists' claim that gun companies only care about the bottom line and don't care about people or safety.
Of course, as Natalie notes, gun companies don't put profit over safety. Moreover, most gun companies are family run companies and that these companies care about their customers.
As I've said many times, the move by NRA News to offer viewpoints from younger commentators such as Natalie and ColionNoir is a smart one. It shows that the gun culture is not a monolithic culture made up of old redneck white guys. That stereotype might work for some markets but it is a myth and these videos effectively challenge it.
