In the Jan. 10, edition of The Trumbull Times, a picture was run on the first page which was scary and misleading. As any responsible gun owner would know, a gun (loaded or not) should never be left out on what appears to be a table or night stand.

I am not against people owning guns, I own one myself. What I take offense at is the cavalier way the gun was pictured. In light of events over the past few months, people are rushing out to purchase guns, and they need to be aware there is a safe and proper way to handle and store them.
