What could be worse than a newspaper running an ad for a gun show next to an article on students from Sandy Hook Elementary School returning to school? Having that paper be one of the largest dailies in the county where the Sandy Hook shooting took place.
Our newspapers should not be running gun ads - including ads for antique and collectible gun shows - next to stories about Sandy Hook. It's insensitive, and it shouldn't have happened. It was an oversight, and we apologize for it. We have taken steps to make sure it doesn't happen again.
