Karen Putnam: Gun story should have been on A1

July 3, 2013 

In the June 29 paper there was a small blurb about two Livingston teenagers arrested for having loaded guns at the Merced Mall.

I am thankful you did report on it; however, why wasn't it on the front page? I missed it totally online and only caught it as I was skimming through before I threw the paper in the recycling bin.

My stepson frequents the mall during the summer weeks, as do many other teenagers.

This is important information and should be treated as such, if nothing else for the safety of our children.
