CVS Pharmacy has a strongly anti-gun piece on their website: "Kids and Guns" under their "health resources."
Their "contact us" email is limited to 1000 characters so I couldn't say as
much as I might like, but I wrote the following response:
I have just read your so-called "health resource" "Kids and guns"
( http://www.cvshealthresources.com/topic/kidsguns ) and was quite appalled.
The writer was a classic example of selective reporting, chosing from biased
sources, and promoting a political, rather than a health-based agenda.
First off, the number of deaths listed gives the impression that these are
accidental deaths which would not happen if the guns were not there. This
is simply not the case. While any death of a child is tragic, most of them
are deliberate homicides. Children are, in general, rather defenseless
against adult intent to harm so the presence or absence of a firearm is
unlikely to affect that number much.
I recommend that you look at works such as long time police officer Massad
Ayoob's "Gun-Proof your children" and come up with a more balanced approach.
Until then, I will be taking my business elsewhere.
