— With all the school killings and domestic violence deaths involving guns, Gov. Nikki Haley posts on her Facebook account her Christmas present, a Beretta handgun.

How offensive and insensitive can one be to those who have lost loved ones to gun misuse? At a time when more gun control is needed, our governor sends out the message to gun distributors that South Carolina is a gun-friendly state. Let’s just turn it into the Wild West or the Wild South.

If this was done as a political move to win votes of those gun-toting voters who want to abolish all gun control, then our governor is someone who will go to any length at anyone’s expense to get a vote. What a sorry governor we have.
