The controversial animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is urging the CEO of Hudson News, Joseph DiDomizio, to treat hunting magazines as he would Playboy or Penthouse by stocking them in places where children won’t be able to see them. “Like other forms of casual or thrill violence, hunting spawns a dangerous desensitization to the suffering of others,” executive vice president Tracy Reiman wrote in the letter. “Not every hunter will kill a human, of course,” Reiman continued, referencing students at Westside Middle School and Chardon High School who opened fire on classmates, “but in this era of escalating violence, it is irresponsible and downright dangerous to allow kids access to magazines that promote killing for ‘fun.'”

Hudson News, which operates more than 600 locations across the United States, most in major transportation hubs like airports and train stations, has not yet responded to PETA’s letter.
