Milt Priggee stands by cartoon criticizing American gun culture


Editorial cartoonist Milt Priggee has come under filre for a cartoon (above) that is claimed to be in very bad taste considering recent shootings.


“A cartoon is a simple machine to make the reader think, not joke,” Priggee said. “It’s not a comic strip, it’s not entertainment, and this is where newspapers have fallen down. They have not taken any kind of opportunity to educate the public because a lot of times people come to an editorial cartoon and they say, ‘Well there’s nothing funny about this. Why is this in the newspaper?'”
