Reader takes issue with photo

  • Friday, October 4, 2013

Dear Editor:
It was in extremely poor taste to have a young lady of color holding an assault weapon on the front page of The Gazette’s 9/12/13 issue in the photograph captioned "Gun Show Attracts 100's."
Black-on-Black crime and the accessibility of guns to teens is a major concern in our society.
We must not glamorize guns and violence. Have a gun show if you must, but leave our youth out of it.
