CONNECTICUT SCHOOL TRAGEDY: EVEN ONE LESS GUN IN THIS COUNTRY WOULD BE AN IMPROVEMENT
The South Carolina newspaper (the Rock Hill Herald) that printed a large advertisement for guns on sale on the same page as coverage of the Connecticut school shooting has issued an apology. Too little too late. The ad is as nonchalant and enthusiastic as if they were selling cashmere sweaters. This casual promotion of firearms makes the civilized among us shudder and scream for gun control. Sure, it won’t stop the criminals, but hopefully stricter gun laws would make it more difficult for disaffected and angry young men and boys to act out their cruel fantasies. For once, all those cowardly politicians should join together and figure this out. Fast.
