I am appalled at your paper’s insensitivity regarding the massacre of children in Newtown as displayed by the full page ad printed in this week’s issue for Destin Guns.

Not only are they advertising the exact weapon that was used in this tragedy, but they have the unmitigated gall to suggest that everyone rush in to purchase one ASAP!

In the name of common decency, this ad should have been refused and never printed. You, gentlemen, should be ashamed of yourselves and your newspaper for caving in to greed and avarice as did Destin Guns, choosing to make a profit instead of empathizing with the victims of this disastrous tragedy.
