Gun ad in paper was outrageous


To the editor:

Wow. Was I shocked to see an insert advertising a gun show in Elmsford. I’m really not sure what the paper was thinking.

It turned out to be particularly offensive in light of the shooting on Johnson Avenue. 

The ad was so outrageous. It was like a John Oliver takedown. 

“Seniors 60-plus: Bring your grandchild, get a memento.”

“Every Monday: Ladies shoot half price.”

As Americans fight to get gun control, I open my neighborhood paper and see this flyer. 

Not favorably impressed.

What's wrong w/an advertisement for a gun show in Elmford (although I don't think there was ever a gun show in Elmsford. There was a gun show in White Plains)? And no one is going to be shooting at a gun show. There are many LEGAL gun owners in NYS. These are taxpaying, law abiding, voting citizens who have a right to own a gun, for whatever reason.

The jewelry store owner on Johnson Avenue should have a concealed/carry permit. It's his choice not to protect himself and his property. On the same note, your dear de Blasio told the cops to chill with stop question and frisk and this is what happens.

But glad to see this is what shocks you snowflake. Living in your ivory tower along the Henry Hudson has sure turned you into a delicate little flower.

It's interesting that "CelticWoman" has numerous comments online, yet chooses to hide behind an alias.

You can be sure that I am not a "delicate little flower," although I question the use of your derogatory term "snowflake."

Oh, and my ivory tower....just a plain old rental in a building built way back when.
