Gun-pointing radio ad in Day inappropriate

I was very disturbed to see the photo that accompanied the quarter page ad for "94.9 News Now" that appeared in recent editions of The Day.

Radio personality Lee Elci and the other fellow come across as red necks out to shoot someone. I am not sure what they were thinking by putting that photo in their ad, especially accompanied by the expression "The voices of Freedom." I am surprised that CBS would allow themselves to be associated with an image that implies violence.

I would also hope that The Day would have higher standards regarding ads. In this post-Newtown era we need to be more discreet with how we come across.
