After a tragic day in Charleston, SC, the "Charleston Post and Courier" put an ad for a gun store over a headline about the mass shooting.
Accentuating the irrationality of the Charleston news, the paper puts an ad for a gun shop on the front page today. pic.twitter.com/GyAW4EcKF1

It's difficult to talk about the murder of 9 people at Emmanuel A.M.E. Church. It was a hideous act and a hate crime, perpetrated in a house of worship called "Mother Emmanuel" by the congregation. It was full of parishioners who have considered it a safe haven through 200 years of often-violent history. The historic black church has stood strong in the center of Charleston through slavery and the tumultuous aftermath of its abolishment.
