Christopher Stanlane JrWe’ve been especially bombarded with up here with “shootings” stories (multiple daily, running the gamut). I read this one a bit ago and it struck me as to how it fits with Bloomie’s commercials.

Don’t get me wrong, my heart breaks for the “accident”, but…. Give Me A Break…stupid, Stupid, STUPID…Gun Safety 101…GEEZ!
