Insensitive editorial cartoon makes light of gun violence
The editorial cartoon in Thursday’s newspaper was shocking. It depicts a man, one hand covering his face, with a busted NCAA bracket page behind him. What was shocking was the gun in the man’s other hand, ready to fire at the bracket page.
Was The Buffalo News unaware that there was a March for Life planned for our country just two days later? That this student-led march hoped to galvanize communities to action against the senseless gun violence happening recently and repeatedly in our schools?
Feeling desperate about your basketball bracket? Need a quick way to solve your unhappiness? Just take out a gun and shoot! I am unable to find the humor in this ill-timed, insensitive cartoon.
