So, along comes a Carol Schwardner, a winter visitor and snowbird from the State of Illinois who is appalled by the Log’s insensitivity at an ad paid for and placed for publication by a new local business, Destin Guns.

As long as you are appalled, well I am too. If you want to be appalled then be appalled at the murder rate in West Chicago in your resident state of Illinois.

Destin Guns has every right to place an ad, and I as a gun owner, have every right to read it and purchase what they are selling.

Welcome to Destin, Florida, where the Second Amendment is alive and well.
