I am writing these comments to express my disgust at the disturbing display of pro-gun violence and the weapons used for that purpose. At several points in and around Beaufort, these billboards loom and send troubling messages.
Each time I pass one of these deplorable boards, I think:
What on earth does gun violence have to do with Christmas?
What about all the people who are victims of gun violence?
Never miss a local story.
What about all the friends and families of victims who have suffered unnecessary grief?
I believe the billboards are shameful and the people who thought of them, produced them, and had them displayed should re-think their meaning of Christmas and peace on earth.
I write with hope for a peaceful world and the end of gun violence.
