South Carolina newspaper REALLY screws up...



Rock Hill Herald, a newspaper in South Carolina, printed a large ad for a big gun sale in Rock Hill on the same page as its coverage of Friday’s massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. The ad, which touted Christmas discounts on Smith & Wesson assault rifles, ran in Saturday’s edition on pages A4-A5:

1. Judging by the lack of compassion we have seen from some people on the pro-gun side...

...I'm not sure I would be so quick to label this a screw-up. After all, we know that guns have absolutely nothing to do with this tragedy. So why wouldn't you print a gun ad there? After all, we need more of them.

2. OH MAN! I used to live near there, and it doesn't really suprise me.

Very few if any people actualy think logically in that state.

Not coming from where it did.

6. Why would they give a fuck about a massacre in a northern liberal state?

7. I was born in Rock Hill and have family there

I visit there several times a year and this doesn't surprise me. Sickening.

Anyone besides me notice the guns seem to be pointing at the picture of Obama? Wonder if this was an "accident", too.
