gunlockHARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The gun industry’s Newtown-based national trade association and lobbying organization has received a $2.4 million federal grant to promote gun locks and firearm safety, an award the group says is its first under the administration of President Barack Obama.For a group that became a regular object of protests following the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings, the grant is an indication it’s beginning to come in from the cold.”I don’t know the politics of this, but it’s a start,” said Steve Sanetti, president and chief executive of the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
