“Subscribers of the Florida Times-Union woke up this morning to find an ad atop the front page for a gun show at the Moroccan Shrine Center –directly above the story covering the tragic shooting of two students on a school bus,” firstcoastnews.com reports. “The Times-Union, a First Coast News media partner, has not responded for a request for comment, but the response on social media hasn’t been kind.” For example . . .
Florida lawyer John M. Phillips tweeted “America – where shooting at children won’t even stop a front and center gun show ad.”
You and I might think the juxtaposition connects the dots between the existence of bad people, the need to defend oneself against these people by force of arms (though not arguing to arm underage students) and the opportunity to purchase said arms for self-defense.
The antis are simply appalled. But aren’t they always?
