The Star wrote about the cartoon on their Facebook:
Your thoughts?A Feb. 9 editorial cartoon by The Kansas City Star's Lee Judge went viral overnight. It is a strong statement about NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre's saying, "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."
The cartoon depicts the grave of Navy SEAL and "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle, who was shot and killed along with a friend on a firing range. Accused of the murders is an Iraq War veteran who may suffer from mental illness.
Editorial cartoons are meant to convey opinions, and this one has obviously struck a nerve with many people.
