Janet Wilson: Gun ad inappropriate

June 9, 2014 

Just seven days after a troubled young man killed six innocent people and then himself in Santa Barbara, you run a full-page ad for a local gun sale. I find this to be insensitive and a less than admirable way of doing business.

Whether it was meant to show support for the rights of gun owners or simply a way to earn revenue, the timing of the ad was unfortunate. This is a time to pay respect to the families who lost loved ones.
