A Minnesota radio host said he would like to tell the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims to "go to hell" for infringing on his gun rights.
Bob Davis was discussing those affected by the Newtown, Conn., tragedy during a Friday segment of his show, "Davis & Emmer," on Twin Cities News Talk AM 1130, according to Minneapolis' City Pages. The topic focused on how family members of the 26 victims, 20 of whom were between the ages of 6 and 7 years old, have become advocates for gun control. In Davis' opinion, these Newtown families are infringing on his constitutional rights.

This is their advertising directory, but it's blank at the moment:
Don't let cowards like this get away with such craven statements. Telling people who just lost family to gun shootings that he'd like them to "Go to hell" is NEVER called for. You can't censor him, but you can complain, raise hell and hit their pocketbooks.
Hit their advertisers hard!
