Baton Rouge Advocate, Dec. 14

According to my son, the gun being advertised is the same type of weapon that the Oregon mall shooter used. That killer didn’t buy the weapon; he stole it from a gun owner. Still, I cannot for the life of me understand why it ought to be legal to purchase such a weapon.

Aside from that, though: Wow, could the ad placement be any worse? This is in part a dramatic snapshot of our problem with guns.
