Letter: Cartoon in bad taste

I am writing about the cartoon illustrated on page A13 of the June 13 issue of the Post Independent. What does the NRA have to do with the massacre in Orlando? Just because a gun was used?

This atrocity could have just as easily been committed with an explosive vest, toxin or a 747 filled with jet fuel. It is obvious the crime is about hate and Islamic extremism not legal gun ownership. The cartoon is in poor taste and publishing it showed poor judgment.
