Letter: Glamorizing guns is inappropriate

15

Editor,

I am uncomfortable with the cover image that you selected for this week’s Current in Carmel, as I feel that this particular photograph glamorizes guns in a way that is inappropriate, particularly when there is so much gun-related violence in our society.

I do appreciate Guy Relford’s advocacy for firearm safety, but given that one of the tenets of gun safety is never to point a weapon at anyone unless you intend to shoot them, why on earth does your photo portray a gun pointed at the reader?
