On another note would it be considered offensive if that was a Car Commercial listed on the same page as an article about a multi-car pile up? Somehow I doubt it.

No because cars are a mode of transport, guns have only one purpose. What a moronic statement.

Couldn't this be a software error cause with all the ads in newspapers surely the selection is an automated process so it picked up on words like "shooting" and then chose that ad?

Agreed. No one besides a couple people would probably get a chuckle.

Ummm... how does that even happen? No one checks this before it goes to print?

Looks like the newspaper was using Google AdSense.

Meh,don't see anything I want there. The ad wouldn't have bothered me, but I don't get offended easily over stuff like that.

almost makes you wonder if they have someone that proofs these things or if it is automated based on article content.

You might feel different over something that affected you personally.

Self defense right? At least according to all the weapon lunatics in the US...
