Selection of editorial cartoon was poor taste

Whosever decision it was to publish the editorial cartoon in the commentary section on April 4, 2018, should have taken a moment to think about the message they were aiming to get across. The young people in our community, and nationwide, are looking to adults to be partners in solving the problems of gun violence not to be ridiculed through broad generalizations based on social media. These issues are not joking matters and it is my hope that the editors of this newspaper will begin to take them as seriously as the young members of this community do.
