What is PETA’s stance on gun control?

The only position PETA has on guns is that they should not be used to hunt animals. PETA has objected to some of the National Rifle Association’s positions in the past, because it frequently takes pro-hunting stands and lobbies against bills that would restrict or ban hunting. However, our disagreement with the organization is limited to hunting issues and doesn’t extend to gun control or gun ownership issues.
