The column you republished by Daniel Akst in Monday’s issue, “Hey, kids, don’t forget your guns,” was one of the most disgusting pieces of “journalism” I have witnessed in a very long time.

Akst is making jokes about arguably the worst tragedy since 9/11. I guess this is his idea of satire, but I can only imagine the horror of the parents of the Sandy Hook children reading such trash.

He should be fired.
